October's Hereford win was over 3m1f (good to firm) and she ran creditably when second over 2m4f at Wincanton 18 days ago following her winter break; exposed 11yo but she should be seriously involved.

Nine-race maiden who was pulled up over fences in January when last seen but she's well handicapped on her best hurdle form, including a second in a big-field handicap at Worcester (2m7f, good) last summer; one to keep an eye on back over hurdles on her return; equipment (tried last time) removed.

Form & Verdict

Appreciated the more galloping track when off the mark at Ffos Las 16 days ago (2m6f, good to soft); denied a return there by the softening ground earlier this week and it remains to be seen whether Huntingdon suits as well, but she's only 3lb higher in a weaker affair than that 0-110.
