Form & Verdict

Three wins all on soft/heavy including Limerick handicap hurdle win in March; struggled on the flat of late but big chance on ratings back hurdling although ideally wants it softer; better effort when third yesterday in a flat claimer (5.05).

0-18 over hurdles, placed only once, hard to fancy on chase debut at the age of nine; the only slight positive is that her best hurdles run was when third in a handicap at this venue two seasons ago.
