Unexposed 6yo who was very respectable third of 15 on handicap hurdle debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in February; not seen again since but Jonjo O'Neill is evidently very keen to switch this Irish point runner-up to chasing.

Won twice in novice company over hurdles last season (2m/1m7f) and was placed in valuable series final at Kelso (2m, soft) in March; makes chasing debut after five-month break but her winning Irish point debut in 2021 bodes well for her prospects over regulation fences.

Third attempt over fences was disappointing, so she reverted to hurdles at Hereford (2m) last month and it did the trick as she rallied to get up on the run-in under 7lb claimer Heidi Palin; just 1lb higher and has some form over 2m4f, but this is a competitive race.

Good-ground bumper winner who scored at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) in January on his third hurdle start; well beaten on handicap debut at Sandown last month but that was a hot race and the heavy ground may have been too much; retains potential and could have a part to play.
