15-race maiden; runner-up from 12lb out of the handicap over C&D (66-1) in September; has failed to better that in six subsequent starts, so it isn't all that difficult to focus on others for the solution; 10lb wrong.

Off the mark at the 23rd attempt when readily landing a 2m novice handicap hurdle at Hereford last month; the second was running all over the place in the closing stages and the form doesn't appeal as being strong; more needed to defy a 6lb rise.

0-19 under rules but has posted a couple of good efforts this year, more recently when second of four from out of the weights behind next-time-out winner at Leicester (2m, soft) this month; effectively 5lb lower from correct mark today and the longer trip is probably in her favour.

Completed quick hat-trick when fitted with cheekpieces in July and was beaten under 1l when third off today's mark at Cartmel (2m1f, soft) on Saturday, albeit after racing rather lazily in rear for much of that contest; will be fine on today's faster ground and could have more improvement to come if switch to first-time visor helps to keep the revs up.
