Form & Verdict

Won claiming hurdle on final start for Gavin Cromwell in the summer and she has bounced back from two falls with good runs in defeat at both Fairyhouse and Navan recently; reproduction of those efforts would see her go close here in what appears a weak enough race.

Back to her best when winning at Kilbeggan (3m, good to yielding) nearly a year ago, things didn't go to plan at Down Royal two months later; long absent and probably wants better ground; chase debut; was placed in point-to-points.
