Stayed well when making the frame in 3m points (one on soft to heavy); made her rules debut in the Sedgefield bumper won by the very smart Brechin Castle and then made no mistake on her switch to hurdling at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy; Luke Scott claimed 5lb); going in the right direction.

5 yo Filly

OR:

Form & Verdict

First and second in two bumpers before a heavy defeat in Aintree's Grade 2; nicely on top at the finish when making a successful debut at Huntingdon (2m3f, good), albeit in a very winnable heat; should go on the ground and likely to keep progressing.

Does nothing in a hurry but it was her best run yet when keeping El Elefante honest at Ayr last time (2m4f, good to soft) and she has to have some chance of reversing those placings with an 11lb pull.

OR:

Form & Verdict

Returns from a lengthy absence but she beat none other than last season's Grade 1 winner Apple Away by 6l in a 3m Irish point (yielding to soft) and her subsequent sale at £30,000 now looks good business; tongue tied for rules debut and it will be interesting to gauge the level of confidence behind her.

Beat none other than Apple Away in Irish mares' maiden point (3m, yielding to soft) in February 2022; then absent until this winter and she's been a fair fourth on both hurdle starts (2m3f, heavy/soft); brings potential to this handicap debut and this unexposed 7yo is one to be interested in.

Placed in two slow-ground Irish points in winter but down the field in both her bumpers and has since changed hands for £9,000; unlikely to be the answer here.
