Went close over C&D in November, after a layoff, then drew clear to win by 25l at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) in January; still has scope for further progress but stopped quickly after racing too freely here in February and needs to put that performance behind her.

Runner-up on first two starts this term, latterly over C&D (good to soft) after wind surgery and a five-month break; that good show preceded further improvement when she got off the mark at the ninth attempt and she did it with a 25l win in seven-runner handicap at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft); 11lb rise today but it's hard to be confident that it will have her measure.

Low-mileage 6yo who has not been beaten far in her two handicaps and should benefit from her reappearance run at Hereford (2m3f, good to firm) last month; looks worth another go at this trip and she's in the mix for yard that won this last year.

Not yet off the mark but was about to put that right at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January, having the race in the bag only to unseat at the last; said to have made a respiratory noise when pulled up the following month; considered on the earlier run.

Form figures of 323 in Irish points and she's been placed in three of her four hurdle runs, including when a rallying second on her handicap debut at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) recently after her summer break; on same mark here and she's a big player if she can build on that back in trip.
