Started off over hurdles with two very promising runs in 2020; made low-key return from long absence last December and was just a respectable third at Fontwell (2m5f, good) last month, after another break, but still features prominently in calculations here.

0-15 on the Flat but was placed three consecutive times on Polytrack in Ireland in early part of this year (1m-10.7f; best RPR 69) and didn't run badly when upped to 1m4f for recent stable debut; can be very competitive at this level if she takes to hurdling.
