Only chase win was in a three-runner race at Leicester in December (2m6f, heavy); has since run well in graded company at Warwick (3m, heavy; second to Grey Dawning), Ascot (3m, good to soft; close third in the Reynoldstown) and in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham where she didn't get home over 3m6f; bit to find on figures but has a chance.
