Well beaten over hurdles latest but a return to the form she showed when winning at Huntingdon in March (off 1lb lower) would see her in the picture; not ruled out with trainer enjoying a fruitful summer.

Made excellent progress over fences last summer/autumn, winning three times (2m4f-3m1f), and ran well for a long way when seventh in good-quality chase at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good; first-time cheekpieces) last month; interesting to see how she fares off her lower hurdle mark here; best on good ground but has some form on soft.
