Form & Verdict

Won a mares' beginners' at Tramore in August before a narrow defeat in a handicap chase at Galway; not at that level since and tailed off back over hurdles last time; looks on a tough mark for now but a break might have helped freshen her up.

Three point wins this year (two under Jamie Gambin) but unplaced in both hurdle starts since; disappointing over C&D latest and that asks some questions of her now; cheekpieces (worn once in point) back on.

3-6 in points for new stable this year; quickly on back foot when pace lifted on recent hurdling return at Newton Abbot (2m1f) but ought to be much better suited by today's trip; versatile regarding ground; interesting.
