Easily dealt with by A Different Kind at Uttoxeter latest (2m4f, heavy), having ensured a solid test over a trip at the bottom end of his range; could do with jumping a bit better if he's to make the 11lb swing count, though the new headgear combination may help in that regard.

Acts well on heavy; won three of her four starts this term, including last month's 2m4f Grade 2 mares' chase at Cheltenham, and the exception was her second of 20 to Coko Beach in the 3m Troytown at Navan (not her best jumping, crowded); 7yos can no longer be ruled out straightaway, following Noble Yeats's triumph in 2022, but a stronger indication of stamina from her would be preferable.
