Form & Verdict
Two fine runs in December when second to Britzka in 3yo maiden hurdle before beaten 13.5l in fourth behind Fil Dor in Leopardstown Grade 2; found Grade 1 too much behind Vauban when trailing field at Dublin Racing Festival; not disgraced in sixth on stable bow four days ago, switching back to Flat for 1m4f maiden; should show up well but possibly vulnerable to improver.

Nice pedigree as a half-sister to Tactical Move (useful bumper performer for Willie Mullins, RPR 125) and out of a half-sister to Denman; bought for 240,000GBP after winning sole point-to-point start in May 2021; perhaps lack of a recent run caught her out on return from 358 days off at Cork last month when safely-held third in Cork maiden hurdle; hood on; live player.
