Flat maiden who was beaten off a lowly mark on the AW a month ago; however, she has four wins and four seconds to show for her nine runs over hurdles and chased home an Elliott hotpot in a good-ground Listed race at Doncaster in her latest jumps start; 7lb higher than for her handicap win earlier this season but that's warranted; good ground is ideal.

No great shakes on the Flat; has raised his profile over hurdles (1-6) and been holding his own behind useful opposition, getting to within 3l of An Bradan Feasa (off level weights) over 2m1f here on soft ground in December and about 5l behind Liari at Musselburgh (reversing placings with his Cheltenham conqueror); he's by no means tilting at windmills, but likely to find a few too good when it matters.
