Justified favouritism when winning over hurdles here (2m, good) last summer, and knocking at the door over fences; was unable to match the finishing kick of the winner (coming up the hill) when runner-up here (2m4f, good; 7-2 favourite) last month; interesting back over 2m.

Tailed off at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) last month after a two-year absence and she needs to prove how much ability she retains; however, she showed promise on soft ground in winter 2019-20 and this very lightly raced 9yo has made the long journey from Shropshire to race here today; interesting.
