Five starts and yet to really threaten, but she's finished second in a Kelso bumper (2m, good) and a maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m, heavy), and the wind op and the step up in trip could prompt a bigger run today.

Her jumping lacked fluency and she was beaten 43l when fifth of 14 on hurdle debut at Fairyhouse (2m2f, soft) last month; however, this point winner (3m, good) has made the journey from Northern Ireland and there can be optimism she'll improve; not ruled out.
