Was doing all her best work late when third over 2m3f (soft) here a month ago so this drop in trip might not be ideal; still needs respecting on the back of that pleasing effort.

Would proably prefer a bit more ease in the ground but does seem to be pretty versatile on that front, and comes here on the back of a big effort in third spot in a mares' beginners at Kilbeggan last month; likes to go from the front but could have a bit of competition here on that front, which is a slight worry, but the track suits her style and, if she gets to force matters, she could take stopping.

Runner-up in two maidens, including behind the top-class Irish Point; close fifth in her first handicap at Wexford (2m, good to yielding) and it was a competitive race in which she was beaten further at Fairyhouse; interesting at this level with cheekpieces now turned to.
