Free-going sort who might have had more than a thumping Perth victory (2m, good to soft) to her name last autumn had she jumped better, and those frailties were further exposed in Graded/Listed company subsequently; much easier task awaits again on this return from a break, but couldn't call her bombproof; Fred Winter entry.

Handy performer in bumpers in 2018-19 and rewarded connections' patience with a really encouraging third on last month's belated Uttoxeter hurdles debut (2m, soft), her late fading owed as much to her initial fractiousness as to the 34-month absence; figures if settling better and deriving the benefit of that return run.
