Form & Verdict

Only defeat came in the Grade 2 bumper for mares at Aintree's Grand National and even then she was fifth of 20; did it very nicely on her hurdling debut at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) and she's bred to stay; smart prospect.

Returned from a break with solid fourth to stablemate Boombawn on handicap debut at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) last month; fine second in Grade 1 novice over this C&D (good to soft) last April and she could build on that latest effort; has won on soft; Harry Skelton's mount of the Dan Skelton four.

Didn't take to fences on first two starts this season; 2-4 over hurdles last campaign, latterly with a 3m win here on handicap debut, and not discredited on return to hurdling four weeks ago considering that was over only 2m; needs a second look.

2-4 over hurdles last season, the latter win in a Ludlow handicap (3m, good) in March; seemed to struggle with the heavy ground when pulled up on last month's seasonal/chase debut; can do much better on today's less testing surface and with that outing under her belt.

Went close over C&D in November, after a layoff, then drew clear to win by 25l at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in January; still has scope for further progress but stopped quickly after racing too freely here in February and needs to put that performance behind her.

Runner-up on first two starts this term, latterly over C&D (good to soft) after wind surgery and a five-month break; that good show preceded further improvement when she got off the mark at the ninth attempt and she did it with a 25l win in seven-runner handicap at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft); 11lb rise today but it's hard to be confident that it will have her measure.
