Quickened up well to score impressively in a Sligo bumper in September on her only start; the choice of Patrick Mullins here and chances are that there is plenty of improvement to come.

40-1 when battling her way to victory in this race last year; chased home the high-class Jetara in a Listed Navan bumper in November on her only subsequent start; tougher ask this year in all likelihood and giving away weight but has to be respected; looks the owner's second string.

Several decent efforts over hurdles, all with give in the ground; off the mark in a mares' maiden at Ayr last time (2m, soft) having been well beaten at 8-15 at Catterick on previous start (1m7f, soft) when returning from a break; going a concern and this looks tougher.

Good bumper campaign in Ireland included a Grade 2 mares' win; further Graded races in her first two hurdle races also read well last term but she was pulled up next time and comprehensively turned over when 8-15 at Catterick last month after 332 days off; questions to answer after that but she's still on the shortlist.
