Rock solid this term, showing herself in a particularly favourable light with serious stamina tests in the mud for major handicaps at Warwick (won), Haydock (second) and Uttoxeter (third to Beauport and Mr Incredible) on last three outings; had a clear lead for most of the closing stages last time (4m2f, heavy) and another bold show would not surprise under this 2lb higher mark.

Won two of her seven chases last season but much improved during an admirably consistent campaign thus far; ultra game in winning Warwick's always-strong Classic Chase (3m5f, soft) and again in defeat at Haydock when only overhauled late on by a progressive Irish challenger; has another career-high mark to deal with now (up 4lb) but she's extremely difficult to knock.

Won a novice hurdle on heavy, below form sole start on it since; 4-11 over fences and a notable improver for two wins and two seconds from her four starts this season; the step up to 3m5f worked a treat last time when she led three out in the 14-runner Classic Chase at Warwick (soft) and went on to win it, with the first two well clear; up 5lb but highly respected.
