Won a heavy-ground maiden hurdle at Limerick (2m3f) for Shark Hanlon last December; no impact in two handicap hurdles afterwards, including on his stable debut in March; absent since; fell in both point runs which sounds a note of caution now switched to fences.

Everything fell into place for Plumpton win (2m1f, good) in February but she's not the easiest to win with and her finishing effort was weak there last time (2m3f); the blinkers tried then are soon discarded and the likelihood of a strong pace up front should benefit her; being 12lb out of the handicap makes life difficult.
