Three runs in novice/maiden hurdles showed some ability; well-backed co-second favourite but pulled up on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (heavy) on New Year's Eve, where 2m7f may have contributed and she was also given wind surgery soon afterwards; tongue-tie also enlisted; it will be interesting to see whether her backers return.
