Form & Verdict

Made very inauspicious start to hurdling career last spring but looked on steep upward curve when making all in two 2m5f Fontwell handicaps (both on good) in May; big player if tuned up after four-month break.

Won four consecutive handicaps between May and November in 2022 (all on good); off only 2lb higher than for the last of those she returned to winning ways with a convincing success at Wincanton two months ago when in this new headgear combination; back up 7lb but goes well fresh and hard to rule out.

0-11 over hurdles but has made the frame on all five appearances this season (2m2f-2m4f), and it's reasonable to assume she'll be on the premises again.

Has won a point but 0-13 under rules; had Poet's Reflection behind when runner-up over 2m2f here last month (chase debut; good) and it wasn't her first poor run on soft when failing to complete at Wincanton; granted goodish ground she's a player.

All four wins (one in a bumper) gained here; C&D success in June but the latest pair have come at 2m5f+; hold-up performer and will need a decent pace back at this trip, probably, but 3lb rise no great hardship; usual hood left off; obvious candidate.

Modest Flat maiden who was left in front by two final-flight fallers to cause 50-1 shock on hurdling debut at Stratford (2m2f, good) in June; didn't achieve much when very remote second (albeit behind useful rival) last time, though, and others here have more compelling form.
