Very consistent performer including when a fine third in a Grade 2 here at Christmas; few excuses though when a well beaten third in a mares' maiden at Punchestown last month (Emily Roebling second); capable of better but becoming frustrating although she does set the standard.

11lb higher than when winning this by a neck last year (soft) but Festival form is a major plus and she reverted to fences with a fine third of 18 in the Thyestes at Gowran Park (3m1f, heavy) in January; showed promise on yielding ground last season; there's every chance she'll be in the shake-up.
