Half-sister to stable's very promising hurdler Snake Roll; runner-up on Irish point debut in January and began rules career with two bumper wins, the latter gained by 6l on soft ground here in April; good prospect for novice hurdles this season.

Two-time novice winner (2m4f, soft/good to soft) who was narrowly in front in competitive mares' novice handicap at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) last month only to fall at the final flight; this 3m point runner-up could be suited by today's step up in trip and is 2-2 here; firmly in calculations.

Dual bumper winner; downgraded from Listed/Grade 2 assignments, she justified long odds-on favouritism to double her tally over hurdles at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft), keeping Kay Tara Tara at bay by just over 2l; that was no better than the pick of her previous efforts and the runner-up has an 11lb pull this afternoon; seems short enough in the betting.

Back from a break with a 4l third at Leicester in March, but that was a small-field seller and she was disappointing back in a handicap at Southwell (2m4f, good; 6-1) last month; record now stands at 0-8 and others are more convincing.

Well down the field in two Irish handicaps in the autumn (2m4f/3m) and did not achieve huge amount when third of six in Exeter seller (2m2f, heavy) for Matt Sheppard last month; however, she was claimed for £6,000 after that latest run and her up-and-coming new trainer has booked Harry Cobden.

Pulled up on handicap debut at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) last month but she's much better than that, having finished second to a subsequent Grade 2 winner at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) in January; there's stamina in her pedigree and this lightly raced 8yo is not written off now up in trip.

Surely failed to give her running when tailed off behind El Elefante at Perth in September, where she had won her novice the time before; ran her best race last time at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) when beaten narrow by a subsequent Grade 2 winner; feasibly treated on that bare form.
