Out of unraced half-sister to smart jumper Junior; led close home to make winning stable debut in run-of-the-mill Ludlow bumper (good) last month, but more improvement needed to land a telling blow here.

Form & Verdict

Half-sister to stable's useful hurdler Glimpse Of Gala; made just a mildly encouraging debut here (soft) in January but held on well to score here (good to soft) in May; takes on males and has penalty to shoulder this time but ought to make her presence felt.

Half-sister to the same stable's useful jumper Glimpse Of Gala; won a Ludlow bumper (good to soft) in May before finding a Listed race at Cheltenham in November too hot; should have a future over hurdles and is more appealing than many.
