Out of a half-sister to a French Grade 1 hurdle winner and shaped with significant promise before fading into third on bumper debut at Huntingdon (good to soft) in January; taken very seriously on today's hurdling debut.

0-6 and vulnerable if bumping into anything above average; however, she's finished runner-up on two of her last four starts (2m3f/1m7f, good to soft/soft) and her best form reads well in today's context; in the mix.

Well-beaten fourth at Lingfield in November but second at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) and Catterick (1m7f, soft; tongue tied first time) on starts either side; just in front of Looking As You Are in the last named; new trip is plausible and best form puts her firmly in the mix.

0-3 over hurdles for David Cottin in France during the winter but was beaten under 10l in what was seemingly a fairly useful conditions race at Cagnes-sur-Mer (2m1f, heavy) in January; dangerous to ignore on today's British debut.

Form & Verdict

Flopped when warm favourite for debut but fared better when third (over 4l behind Imperial Jade) at Newbury (2m, good to firm) in February and was respectable fourth in stronger race than this at Taunton (2m, good to soft) last month; with a top stable and may still have a bigger run in her.
