Failed to trouble the judge in Ireland for Joseph O'Brien but more positive signs for her new stable when 2l second of 12 at Southwell (1m3f) in first-time cheekpieces (retained) 11 days ago; one to consider from an unchanged mark.

Dual turf winner for Roger Charlton in 2011 but her form for this stable later that year was disappointing and, following a long absence, she finished last of eight at Southwell (1m4f) last month.

Form & Verdict

Thriving 6yo who took a long time to get off the mark but has won three hurdles and a 1m2f handicap since December; should be fine over today's trip and makes very obvious appeal in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Close third over C&D in first-time cheekpieces last month and didn't run badly when fifth in first-time blinkers here a fortnight ago but this inconsistent 11yo hasn't won since 2021 and it's hard to tell whether a first-time visor will provide the solution.

Close third in first-time cheekpieces at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) in January but he's not matched that form in a variety of headgear since and was only fifth of six at Newcastle last time; has something to prove again and this 11yo has not won since November 2021.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up on last month's hurdling debut and, after starting very slowly, was always towards the rear when returned to the Flat for recent handicap debut at Southwell (1m6f); was placed in a 1m3f Southwell novice in December, though, and remains unexposed; cheekpieces added today.

Hinted at ability in three outings on turf/Tapeta in late 2022, but little to shout about in three Flat starts and a hurdle so far this year (visored last time); hopes pinned on the step up to 2m unlocking some improvement.
