Impressive Irish point winner; well beaten on first start under rules but next two runs were much more encouraging; moves back up trip here and ought to have further improvement to come in handicaps; high on the list.

Strong at the finish in similar event here (2m4f, soft; handicap debut) two weeks ago, adding to her Irish point win; likely to be suited by this first attempt at 3m under rules and is open to further progress; revised mark looks manageable; respected.

Bought for £80,000 last April after impressive win in Irish mares' maiden point (3m, soft) on debut; yet to transfer that promise to rules, in two attempts (2m/2m4f, good to soft), but Musselburgh last time was a step in the right direction and perhaps this softer ground will help.

Form & Verdict

0-6 over hurdles but was creditable second in 20-runner Punchestown handicap (3m, heavy) in December, and last month's Catterick fourth (3m1f, soft) wasn't a bad effort; drops back in trip with tongue-tie fitted here; ought to play a significant role.

Point-to-point winner (for today's rider) has shown promise in ordinary maiden hurdles; wasn't out of it when badly hampered and unseated three out on handicap debut at Down Royal so not one to readily rule out.

Rallied for 8l fourth in mares' maiden hurdle at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) in November and today's extra yardage could prompt some improvement; however, she's 0-6 and there's a suspicion others have greater potential.

Runner-up in Fontwell bumper (2m1f, soft) in February 2022 on second start then absent until Newcastle (2m4f, soft) last month, when well beaten on her hurdle debut having pulled hard; the first-time hood could help her settle better today and she's not written off now back down in distance.
