Form & Verdict

Won a bumper at Kelso (2m, good) in September 2021 and then absent until this winter; unable to recapture his bumper promise on his first two hurdle starts, but it was a step back in the right direction when 12l second at Sedgefield (2m4f, good to soft) last time and she could build on that.

Form & Verdict

0-10 and disappointing at Clonmel and Tramore the last twice, but this Irish raider is a strong contender judged on her previous form and it will be no surprise if she bounces back to form with a big run in this modest race.
