Form & Verdict

Winning Irish pointer who was pulled up suffering with ataxia on hurdle debut for this yard but has shown glimmers of promise behind useful mares in two subsequent starts at 2m3f and 1m7f; has more going for her now handicapping off a lowly mark.

After failing to take to chasing she's done well back over hurdles, with her third at Huntingdon working out well and then finishing strongly to collect narrowly at Ludlow (3m, good; 5lb lower); good ground is the key to her and definite chance.

3m point and 2m4f hurdle winner; gradually back to form this season, solid third at Huntingdon (2m4f; behind subsequent scorers) most recently; back up in grade but runs off bottom weight and Joe Anderson takes off useful 5lb; very appealing.

Form & Verdict

Shown promise in bumper/novice hurdles; not obviously ahead of her mark in handicaps and was just plugging on at one pace behind a clear leader (who faded) when making a bad mistake at the last over C&D last March (first-time cheekpieces, discarded); is still a contender in an ordinary race.

Made low-key handicap debut when sixth of seven at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in January but that was her first run since November 2021 and there is good evidence to suggest today's step up to 3m will suit; can get much closer to the target today.

Won 1m4f Flat novice as well as 2m Taunton novice hurdle; no obvious step forward for handicaps but she did at least see out 2m4f when runner-up at Leicester in November (good to soft) and shouldn't be too far away despite 2lb rise since.
