3-13 over hurdles; lost out only by a nose to Aston Martini in quite valuable race at Lingfield (2m, soft) in January, having been bumped on the run-in, and her next two runs were also very creditable; the most exposed one in this line-up but handles good ground and probably won't be far away.

Career-best form was two runs back when runner-up in a mares' novice at Lingfield (2m, soft; awarded the race on the day but lost it on appeal); late mistakes were no help when second to Party Vibes at Market Rasen and she was giving the Daly mare 9lb that day; certainly not without hope of reversing those placings, especially with Joe Anderson now taking off 5lb; stays this far.
