Ended time with Paul Nicholls with two 2m5f hurdle wins (good) in the summer of 2021; encouraging chase debut back from absence for new yard at Wetherby in January (2m3f, soft) but was beaten a long way out over 3m at Exeter in March; hard to know which way she'll go today.

Jumping was looking an issue but she was excellent in that department when making all under Shane Quinlan at Ffos Las (3m, soft; has won on good) when last seen in May, beating Shirocco's Dream; returns off 8lb higher following wind surgery; one of three runners for local yard with an excellent record in this race.

Won back-to-back handicap hurdles on good ground at Newton Abbot (2m5f) for Paul Nicholls during July 2021; not seen again until two months ago when an encouraging 5l fourth (of six) on her chase/stable debut at Wetherby (2m3f, soft); should be sharper for that and promises to stay this far; player.

Form & Verdict

Two hurdle wins on good to soft; good start to chase career when making all from Do You Think at Huntingdon in February and perhaps had a stiff task against revitalised one in two-finisher race at Wincanton last month (3m1f, good); still needs more if she's to give the weight away.

Dual chase winner on good ground last year (2m7f/3m1f); didn't run badly when fourth of five at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft; had wind op since) in January and has some form on slow ground but others appeal more all the same.

Refitting the hood didn't help in first two handicaps, over hurdles and fences, but she looked better the further she went when beating an in-form rival at Huntingdon last month (2m7f, soft); has scope as a stayer.

Came clear to win a 3m1f soft-ground chase at Warwick in January (2lb lower; first-time cheekpieces) but it's all gone pear shaped in the meantime; perhaps another change of headgear will work the oracle but it's not hard to have doubts.

Failed to complete last two races and her tendency to clout the occasional fence remains a worry but she looked good when winning in first-time cheekpieces at Warwick (3m1f, soft) in January and is probably still on a workable mark.

All three wins on heavy ground here, including narrowly over fences in March (2m3f); however, some way below that form when no match for Dicey Rielly here last month and this looks every bit as competitive.

Gained all three wins on heavy ground at Ffos Las (2m-2m6f); safely held in cheekpieces and then a visor on her last two hurdling starts (2m4f/2m); tries a new trip and sports first-time blinkers on this return to chasing; too well handicapped to rule out but needs to turn a corner.

Had a Uttoxeter race in the bag when taking a heavy fall three out in September (3m, good; second chase start) and did well to put that behind her here last month (2m3f, soft), taking it up smoothly and winning with authority; back up 7lb in a stronger race but unexposed.

Did well to finish second at Hereford (3m1f, good) in November, after some sketchy early jumping, but was struggling before coming to grief on next outing and suffered heavy defeat when back over hurdles last time; comes here with questions to answer and would appeal more on better ground.

Form & Verdict

Won Irish point; being brought along patiently under rules and although unable to pick up to order over 2m4f at Wincanton in March (good to soft; second chase start) her spirited late dash suggested this longer trip is sure to suit; looks good for a big run.
