Form & Verdict

Gifted the race in a dramatic novice hurdle at Sedgefield (2m4f; only a poor third at the final flight) in April; soundly beaten on reappearance at Warwick (2m) and doesn't make much appeal stepping up markedly in distance for handicap debut.

Step up to 2m7f paid off when she won on handicap debut at Market Rasen (soft) in December; aided by the leader's last-flight unseat at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January but again did her best work late on to complete the double; up another 4lb but surely has more to give as a stayer; whether this will be a stiff enough test of stamina is a question but it's a weak race.

Modest win ratio (1-17) with that sole success coming when making all in a conditional jockeys' handicap at Newcastle (3m, heavy) in March; didn't finish that far behind Diamond Twin and Dr Lockdown on reappearance over C&D three weeks ago but her overall profile is more exposed.

Form & Verdict

Yet to win (0-12) but has placed form with Ciaran Murphy, including in competitive handicaps at Tipperary and Galway (3m; wore headgear); his hurdling is a slight concern but he's a noteworthy recruit for Harry Derham and could have a role to play.

Placed in three 3m handicaps when trained in Ireland; creditable third over 2m7f at Market Rasen (soft) on debut for new yard when sent off the 11-8 favourite; needs to find something on that form but clearly one to consider; tongue-tie returns with cheekpieces removed.

Downhill since runner-up at Plumpton (3m1f, good to soft) in November 2022 but has slipped to a theoretically more manageable mark (14lb lower) as a result; could potentially strip fitter since last month's Chepstow run, so a case can be made.

Firmly in the mix (awarded second over Dr Lockdown) in a three-way tussle over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; that was a most pleasing first attempt (tongue tied) in handicap company and, unexposed as a stayer, there's every likelihood of further improvement from him.
