Form & Verdict

Irish point winner, and successful in a bumper for this yard; useful hurdle debut at Hexham (2m, heavy) in November and although she was up in class at Haydock last month, she nevertheless ran flat; cheekpieces an unknown factor but solid form claims if they do the trick.

Won her sole Irish point and never had to be asked a question when winning a Ffos Las bumper (heavy) on British debut; took a good hold on hurdle debut over C&D after Christmas and was nursed home in a remote third to a progressive winner; has more to come against her own sex.
