Bumper and heavy-ground novice hurdle winner who returned from a very long absence with a respectable fourth in a Listed mares' hurdle at Wetherby (2m, soft) 18 days ago; she could have more to offer now tackling fences and her dam ran well at up to 3m; wears first-time cheekpieces.

Her solid bumper campaign was on good; has mostly run with credit switched to chasing but winning in first-time visor (retained since) in a four-runner race at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) in February was the form pick; back up in trip after 2m seemed too sharp at Newbury last month; considered.

Bumper (good) and novice hurdle (heavy) winner who built upon previous chasing promise when winning in first-time visor (retained) at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) last month; had only three rivals to beat and needs to jump better now tackling males in a warmer race, but she could continue improve.

Her second at Warwick in November to last week's Thurles Listed winner Marsh Wren now reads well and she returned to something approaching that form when second off this mark at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last time; doesn't always look the easiest of rides and kept jumping left last time - which she wouldn't want to repeat here - but the new visor (on for cheekpieces) may help in that respect; form claims are crystal clear.

Form & Verdict

Made it 2-5 over hurdles when winning Huntingdon novice (2m4f, soft) in April and this point winner was a promising second of five on last month's chase debut at Wincanton (2m4f, good); there's room for improvement in her jumping and she could have a part to play.

Began chasing career with three good efforts over 2m4f last year and that form reads well; pulled up over hurdles in January but got back on track when running quite well over 3m1f at Cheltenham (perhaps didn't stay; cheekpieces joined usual tongue-tie); can see her going well back to 2m4f in this company.

Form & Verdict

There is a question mark regarding the testing ground but she won two handicap hurdles (2m1f/2m4f, good to soft/good) earlier this year and was a promising second on last month's chase debut at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft); open to improvement and is not ruled out.

Won the 2m4f handicap hurdle at this meeting last year (on good); reliable sort who's progressive too, judged on her 9l win in four-runner race at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) four weeks ago, which was her sixth run and first win over fences; often front-runner but not that day; 6lb higher today and could still do with jumping more fluently (earlier fell three out here in December) but she needs plenty of respect.

Pulled up in March on final outing over hurdles but returns having had wind surgery and she's on a competitive mark judged on form such as her second of four at Exeter (2m2f, heavy) in January; could improve for the switch to fences given she's won a point, and she's an interesting contender.
