All five wins have come in mares' races, getting off the mark over fences in a small field at Huntingdon in November (2m4f, good); not disgraced in decent handicaps against male opposition the last twice and returning to 3m will be fine; major claims.

Ran creditably against males in similar event at Kempton (2m4f, soft; second chase start) on Boxing Day and remains unexposed over fences; however, may have to settle for another supporting role, as all her wins remain in mares' races.
