Won over C&D (good to soft) in March and back on the scoresheet when doing it easily at Perth (2m4f, soft) in September; made two bad mistakes and was pulled up at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) only on Saturday but remains of interest in view of that penultimate performance.

Seemingly aided by tongue-tie when runner-up in first two chases, more recently when staying on strongly from poor position at Kelso (2m1f, soft) seven weeks ago; it's hard to know what to make of that piece of form, though, and he's 3lb higher here.

Form & Verdict

Temperamental mare who has struggled in two maiden hurdles and two beginners' chases for new stable this season; has much more realistic chance at the weights in this low-grade handicap and Harry Cobden is an interesting booking but she remains a very risky proposition.
