Useful on the Flat for Ralph Beckett, winning three times over 1m4f; disappointed on latest outing in September and was sold for 30,000gns last month but has joined up-and-coming stable for hurdling career; usual cheekpieces removed; withdrawn at Lingfield yesterday due to soft ground.

Came second in Ludlow bumper (good to soft) at start of this season and was very respectable sixth in Listed race at Cheltenham (soft) in November; made disappointing start to hurdling career when tailed off at Ffos Las last month but the ground was heavy there and she remains of interest.

Closely related to smart hurdler Luccia but showed only minor promise in bumpers last season and finished down the field over C&D (good to soft) when 50-1 for hurdling debut in November; needs subsequent wind op to have made a big difference.

Beaten about 45l when 150-1 for debut at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) six weeks ago but positives can be drawn from that performance and she might last a bit longer on the faster ground here; not ruled it each-way.

Irish point winner in November 2022 but safely held in two bumpers last season and suffered heavy defeats at big odds this term on her two starts over hurdles; tongue tied this term and now has blinkers as well; with an extra 1m for this handicap, it's possible she will be seen in a much better light and she needs a market check.
