Form & Verdict

Had been chasing before finishing a close second at Kelso (2m2f, good) in September; subsequently had a break and has been a bit short of her best in two runs since; feasibly treated if returning to form.

In decent form at the age of ten and regained the winning thread at Ayr (2m5f, good) two starts ago; respectable fourth here (2m2f) latest; should go well, back up in distance.

0-5 over hurdles but was second (albeit no match for winner) off 6lb higher at Ayr (2m5f, good) in March and her eased-down Irish point win in 2021 bodes well for her chasing prospects; not sure to benefit from today's drop back in trip but still makes appeal.

Positive reaction to first-time blinkers when third at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in January; the headgear didn't seem to work again over the same C&D last time but connections persist and the step back up in trip should be in her favour.

4-23 over hurdles, with all her wins on good ground over shorter; the latest (last May) was her only win since 2021 but she was short-headed at Perth (3m on soft) last September and not disgraced two months ago when back from a 12-week break; capable of being thereabouts.
