J: James Bowen

T: Nicky Henderson

Three Flat wins for previous yard; justified favouritism at Hereford (2m, good to soft) last month on second attempt under this code, pulling clear with a subsequent scorer; this unexposed juvenile hurdler is due to go up 3lb in future and has to be respected.

She's not straightforward (can run in snatches) and has won just one of her 14 starts; well beaten at Southwell last time but AW might not suit and she went there on the back of two good thirds on turf (1m4f/1m6f, good); might not be far away.
