Form & Verdict

Made all in 2m Exeter maiden hurdle last season and ran big race in defeat when close/clear second on chasing debut at Hereford (3m1f, good to soft) ten days ago; back in action before 3lb rise takes effect and will be a very tough nut to crack if in similar form again.

Race rather fell apart when easily taking a Fakenham mares' handicap in January (3m, good to soft); not really any wiser as to whether she can defy a 5lb higher mark as she made a serious error at Ffos Las on sole start since, but lightly raced enough over fences to believe she might.

Didn't make any significant further progress after winning Catterick novice hurdle (1m7f, soft) last December and made low-key seasonal/chase debut when well-held fourth at Hereford (2m5f, good) last month; needs that recent outing to have done her good.
