Form & Verdict

Won a point in 2020 but, following a long absence, hasn't shown a great deal under rules this year; shaped with some promise on recent chasing debut, having been badly hampered by a faller, but is effectively 8lb higher for today's hurdling return and needs help from the first-time cheekpieces.

Tailed-off favourite at Cartmel early last month but that may have come too soon, seven days after she completed a Hexham double (both 2m7f, good; one of them under Paddy Barlow); lightly raced under rules and this soft-ground point winner could have more to offer.
