Had some very decent bumper form for Pat Turley and, after a year off, has been running creditably over this sort of trip since sent hurdling, including in Punchestown Listed novice and most recently C&D maiden third to Law Ella; sets the standard here and sure to be thereabouts.

Comfortably won Musselburgh novice (3m, good to soft) in February and went close in Listed mares' novice at Doncaster (3m, soft) last time; jumped to the right on that most recent start and she's again going left-handed today, but she's entitled to respect on her first handicap start.
