Third in a Listed bumper on soft ground; made winning start to hurdling career in mares' maiden at Warwick (2m, good) in October and she faced a much stiffer task at Cheltenham two weeks later; big chance despite penalty.

Made a successful return to hurdles over 2m here (good to soft) in March and she wasn't far away in a better race at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) 19 days ago; not obviously thrown in but another solid show expected.

Third attempt over fences was disappointing, so she reverted to hurdles at Hereford (2m) last month and it did the trick as she rallied to get up on the run-in under 7lb claimer Heidi Palin; just 1lb higher and has some form over 2m4f, but this is a competitive race.

Form & Verdict

Looked a useful prospect when landing Wetherby bumper in November 2020; 0-5 and rather frustrating over hurdles (races freely) but her best run came over C&D, she's had wind surgery since her last outing and she should go well with a tongue-strap and hood worn in tandem for the first time.

Looked promising when winning Wetherby bumper in 2020 but hurdle career didn't progress as it might have and now back from another absence; however, her best form gives her a good chance now handicapping (mark dropped 6lb since first assessed) and market helpful; no aids today.

Won a junior bumper (1m4f, soft) on debut in December 2019 but she's had only four runs since and has been beaten 32l or more in her three outings over hurdles; now makes her handicap debut but she needs to significantly raise her game; stablemate of Eclairant Le Monde.

Won a good-ground bumper at Southwell (unraced on softer) in the summer and she faced a stiff task when eighth of 16 in a Listed race at Cheltenham (50-1) in November; makes her hurdling debut in a weak race and impossible to discount; usual hood left off today.

Soundly beaten in two bumpers and 0-12 on the Flat, but there was some promise in her 22l fourth of 11 in maiden hurdle at Newcastle (2m, good to soft; 150-1) three weeks ago; place claims if building on that.
