Would proably prefer a bit more ease in the ground but does seem to be pretty versatile on that front, and comes here on the back of a big effort in third spot in a mares' beginners at Kilbeggan last month; likes to go from the front but could have a bit of competition here on that front, which is a slight worry, but the track suits her style and, if she gets to force matters, she could take stopping.
