Form & Verdict

Didn't show a great deal in her three qualifying runs but kept on well for close fourth over C&D (good to soft) on last month's handicap debut, despite racing a bit too freely; effectively on same mark today; may still have a bigger run in her.

Beaten over 17l when third of seven on handicap debut at Bangor (2m, good to soft) in March but that was his first run since November and significant positives can be drawn from that performance; this 2m4f point winner moves up in trip and remains unexposed; interesting.

Placed on both hurdling starts in France in 2021 and, following a long absence, displayed minor promise in two British maidens (1m7f/2m) towards end of last season; not obviously well treated for today's handicap debut but open to improvement if suited by the step up in trip.
