Form & Verdict

Winning pointer; suffered dip in form after promising hurdle debut in November but was seemingly back on track when very respectable third on handicap debut at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) in February; that form has been very well advertised by the front pair since; the one to beat.

Beat a subsequently very useful type in sole Irish point (yielding to soft); won minor 2m5f hurdle (good) for this yard in May but his chase debut at Warwick didn't go to plan and he was pulled up after making a bad blunder four out; too soon to write off and the return to shorter may suit.

Placed once from eight Irish points; all three runs over hurdles have been over the extended 2m5f at Fontwell on good ground this May/June, beaten just under 4l by the only other finisher on second occasion; that's not solid form but she makes this handicap debut off a lowly mark.
