Form & Verdict

Out of a French hurdle/chase winner; unable to justify her prominence in the betting when always towards rear on debut at Southwell (good) in June but is presumably thought capable of better.

Only ninth on her debut but then made all at Stratford (2m, good), prevailing by a length; form is nothing to crow about and she will need a lot better here in the first-time tongue-tie.

Close second in a bumper at Stratford (good) in August but the form is nothing to get excited about in this context; no show when 28-1 at Hereford (soft) ten days ago and this looks a very stiff task on hurdle debut.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up on Irish point debut in 2020 but, following a long absence, won by 4l on good ground in May; that form isn't anything to get excited about (runner-up is maiden hurdler with best RPR of 78) but her new stable has a very good strike-rate in bumpers; hood fitted.
