Poor strike-rate (2-38); hasn't kicked on positively since winning a low-key classified event at Musselburgh (1m4f, good) in July; nothing of any real significance on AW (0-9) and reportedly could go back over hurdles at some point.

All four wins have come over 1m2f/1m4f around here, the latest from 2lb lower in November; finished behind three of these when fourth of nine over C&D in January, but appeared to be undone by a lack of pace there; capable of playing a part if this pans out more in her favour back from a 51-day break.
