Dam, dual bumper winner, is a half-sister to bumper winner McGregor's Cottage and 2m5f/2m6f hurdle winner Miss Milano; this son of Pether's Moon needs considering on his first run, especially if the market vibes are positive.

Well backed when winning on debut in Newcastle bumper (2m1f, heavy) in March and he kept on for an encouraging fourth in a maiden hurdle at Kelso (2m, soft) three weeks ago; open to plenty of improvement now up in trip and he's one to be interested in.
