Very decent mare over hurdles, winning at Grade 3 and Listed level and runner-up in last year's Grade 2 mares novice at Cheltenham; fourth in the County Hurdle on her last start; first ever run under Flat rules and basically impossible to assess but the trainer does well in this type of race; very interesting runner

Runner-up in Grade 2 Mares' Novices' Hurdle over C&D (soft) at this meeting last year and has continued the good work this term, last time second of 21 on last month's handicap debut at Leopardstown (2m, soft); this lightly raced 6yo is with a leading yard and could have more to offer; respected.

Should win this on ratings; versatile regarding field sizes and RPRs 140 thrice in a row earlier this year advertised reliability of this mark; main concern is proper deep ground which will not suit.

10-48 overall (5-32 over hurdles) with biggest win in the Scottish Champion Hurdle in April 2022; ran well in defeat last February-April and gave easily her most encouraging performance since when having her first go over this sort of trip, running on well to take fourth in the Musselburgh qualifier (soft) last month; needs to build on that but worth a second look; first-time hood.
