Useful Flat form, 7f/1m winner on goodish ground for Joseph O'Brien; hurdling for new yard on last three outings, easily best of which was her front-running second in five-runner race at Haydock (1m7f, soft) on latest; that race was her first in headgear, which is retained; considered on handicap hurdle debut.

Useful Flat form when winning at Killarney (1m) last May and also in September (1m1f, again good to yielding; blinkered) on final run for Joseph O'Brien; hurdle debut form at Hereford (2m, soft; 8-1) two weeks ago, however, suggests she is probably best watched for now in this sphere.
