Form & Verdict

Won an Irish point by 10l and shaped with plenty of encouragement when second of 14 on her hurdling debut at Exeter (2m2f, good; best work late on) last month; today's longer trip should suit and she has to be respected.

Well handicapped if going back far enough but last season didn't end well and again below par this term over fences (in cheekpieces last twice), with her placed efforts nothing to shout about (beaten 22l and 39l); returns to hurdling with a few questions to answer.

Made a successful stable debut in an Exeter bumper last November and a fair effort when third of eight on hurdles debut at Wincanton (2m5f, good to soft) the following month, but disappointing the last twice (underwent wind surgery before latest outing); cheekpieces given a go on this handicap debut, but she does have enough to prove.

With a top stable and shaped very much as though her turn was near when close/clear second at Taunton (3m, good to soft) in March; however, was a disappointing favourite over that C&D last month and now has a point to prove; tongue-tie added.

Runner-up in two of her four bumpers and filled the same position at Chepstow (2m3f; 50-1) on switch to hurdling; seemed unsuited by drop to 2m last time; still has untapped potential but one or two others appeal more.
