Form & Verdict

Did well over 3m on soft late in 2020 and she's hit new heights this season with her soft-ground wins in handicaps at Bangor (3m) and Aintree (3m2f Becher); spring-heeled over the big fences last time, which clearly played to her strengths, but she'd have a leading chance today on the Bangor form as well; reliable last season and big chance if she is again on song.

Faded into sixth in C&D handicap (good to soft) in January but ran well for a long way and built on that when runner-up in first-time cheekpieces (retained) in Haydock's 3m4f Grand National Trial last month; open to improvement on her second run over these obstacles and this 2021 Becher Chase winner (soft) is very much an each-way player with her 7lb mares' allowance.

Completed a hat-trick last season (3m/3m2f, soft; including the Becher Chase) and she's well handicapped on that form; hasn't run badly on her last few starts but needs something extra in the first-time cheekpieces if she's to win this, and her best form has come on soft ground.

Better than ever this term when winning good-ground handicaps at Ascot (3m) and Hereford (3m1f), while last season's five wins were all on soft or heavy; disappointing at Doncaster on latest outing, notwithstanding the 2m4f, but she'd be a serious player if straight back to her best.
