Consistent over hurdles without progressing and a hood didn't seem to inspire any improvement when beaten 20l into third over C&D last week; always possible that the switch to handicaps could help but it needs to.

Form & Verdict

Clicked when sent over fences in a tongue-strap, early in 2022, winning her first two attempts (for Ali Stronge); something clearly amiss on final start 17 months ago; back hurdling on debut for Richard Newland and worth more than a cursory glance in the betting.
