Most recent of her four wins was over hurdles in April 2022; the stable is enjoying a fine season and positives can be taken from her second in a five-runner veterans' contest at Limerick.

Never really involved at Roscommon albeit she stuck to her guns really well to bag a modest fourth; jumping left a bit to be desired on that occasion and if she has ironed out those frailties, she should hold her own here.
