Not offered much so far and she was tailed off over C&D (good) on her recent handicap debut; might yet do better but questions to answer for now.

Dual C&D winner for former yard, including of this race two years ago; made a winning debut for yard at Hereford (2m3f, good to firm; has won on soft) in October; creditable third there in November but there were heavy defeats either side of that; the latest was admittedly after 119 days off; mixed messages but considered.

Three handicap wins for previous yard; went into a decline last summer but revitalised when making winning debut for yard over C&D (good to firm; has won on soft) in October and had excuses since; likely to be ridden more patiently again now reunited with Gavin Sheehan; thereabouts.
