0-8 over hurdles but has made the frame here five consecutive times since April, the last twice for new stable in C&D handicaps; raised 4lb for her close second 16 days ago but and moves up from Class 5 today but at least that recent run proved she handles soft ground.

Form & Verdict

Well-bred mare who ran her best race yet to finish runner-up in a valuable handicap for mares at Kelso (2m, soft), finishing behind a stablemate of Poetic Music; perhaps relying on Fergal O'Brien's mare not being at her best but should be in the shake up.
