Form & Verdict

Runner-up in point and bumper then went one better at Southwell (2m, soft) on debut over hurdles; disappointing favourite at Wetherby (2m3f) last time but subsequent wind surgery might have fine-tuned her; in top hands and remains open to further progress.

Made it 2-3 over hurdles with an easy Doncaster win on her handicap debut in February, after wind surgery; up 11lb in a tougher race but surely open to further improvement and obvious shortlist material.

It was only an ordinary Class 4 handicap that she won at Doncaster (2m3f) but she fairly breezed home and that was also her first run back from wind surgery; up 11lb but very much respected.

Won three handicaps on the trot between April and June, at 3m1f-3m2f (on soft and good); excused an Exeter defeat after a break but she couldn't hold her position when fifth to Gaye Legacy at Market Rasen in November (2m7f, good to soft) and needs more.

Won under Victoria Malzard in April-June on final three runs for the now-retired Oliver Sherwood (3m1f/3m2f, soft/good) and fair fourth of seven at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft) a fortnight ago on stable debut; could improve for that recent outing and she's on the shortlist today.

Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) last May; well beaten when last seen three months ago (handicap debut) but remains interesting off this sort of mark judged on her best bumper form, namely Listed win and Grade 2 fourth; worth another chance.

Successful five times last year between January and August; her two efforts this winter (on soft/heavy) don't suggest she's going to defy top weight in this field but the return to better ground may help.
