Form & Verdict

6yo but she's had 15 races over fences, three of them wins and she took her form to a new level when upped in trip for her 3m4f Ulster National success at Downpatrick (soft) in April; also a creditable third here last November; pulled up in the Scottish National (good) later in April and well beaten in a rare hurdle race when reappearing last month, but that Ulster National and her trainer's excellent record here make her one to note.

His last win was an impressive one at Punchestown (3m7f handicap chase, good) in April 2022; missed nearly all of last season and while his third of 16 at Galway in August suggested that most of his ability remains, he flopped in another hurdle race in September when the ground was a bit more testing (yielding to soft); has some soft-ground form further back but his trainer has expressed misgivings.
