Two C&D wins last spring but has struggled this year; better at Stratford eight days ago and chance may depend of effect of cheekpieces (returning in place of usual tongue-strap); much prefers quick ground.

Fair on the Flat for Michael Appleby (four wins) and was second on last month's stable/hurdle debut at Ffos Las (2m, heavy); the value of that form is open to question (short-odds favourite below form) but she could quite plausibly be seen to better effect if the ground is less testing here.

Second hurdle start was better than the other two; bled from the nose on latest; all starts have been over 2m, so this 3m1f for handicap debut involves a healthy dose of guesswork but her best run did point firmly to going beyond 2m.
