Ran green but left good impression when winning Thurles bumper (soft) on debut in February 2022; jumping left a bit to be desired on both subsequent maiden hurdle runs, running creditably in the circumstances at Cork and when second to a clear-cut winner at Punchestown in May; clearly needs to jump better, should be up to winning a maiden if she does and this could be a good opportunity.
