Two wins in last season's novice chase campaign (2m5f, good/good to soft) and again ran well when 4l second to Found On in handicap here (2m5f, good) in September; has a progressive profile and 3m could suit, but she's 12lb worse off with the reopposing Found On so has plenty of work to do.

Took well to chasing last season, notably when winning easily by 13l against other mares at Uttoxeter (2m5f, good to soft) in January; could still have more to offer over fences but we haven't seen her since a 49l defeat at Cheltenham in April.

The most experienced of these over fences after ten starts; has won only one of them but they were useful mares that she chased home at Wincanton last time (2m4f, good to soft) and this task looks easier.

Usually consistent but didn't cover herself in much glory when a remote fourth at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) latest; sole win over fences (1-14) came on her last attempt at this sort of trip, so that may help.

Came good over fences in quite valuable event at Worcester (2m4f, good) in the autumn; hasn't really kicked on from that success and was no match for clear winner when second at Uttoxeter (2m5f, good to soft) in January but will appreciate this ease in grade and is on a good mark.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner who has been good and bad in four runs over fences; the two RPRs in the 130s make her a major player at this level and her quiet reappearance was after 300 days away; cheekpieces are a first.

Record of 0-5 over hurdles and 0-4 chasing when based in Ireland; best figures were achieved over the smaller obstacles and others in this have more pressing claims; cheekpieces are new (has tried tongue-tie and blinkers).

Form & Verdict
