Difficult to win with (2-30), but can't be knocked for consistency having finished runner-up ten-times; has acquitted himself respectably on both previous visits to Sedgefield, recently when a keeping-on third to Deep Charm (3m3f, soft); good ground usually aids cause.

Beaten on last 18 starts going back to March 2022 but he was runner-up four times in a row last summer (2m4f-3m, including on heavy) and it was his first run since when a fair third of five at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft); this course winner could improve for that latest run and is not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Yet to win over fences (0-6), and her peak hurdles form (2-10) would strongly imply that she's best suited by heavy ground; placed at Ballinrobe (2m7f; 25-1) last September, so probably worthy of a market check on first start for Mark Walford.
