Form & Verdict

Began chasing career with two good runs in the autumn (2m4f/2m2f); off disappointing effort in November (jumped poorly) and now reverts to hurdling but her current mark is workable and drying ground will aid her cause.

2-6 as a novice hurdler last season and second in both chases this term, the latter here (2m2f, good) three weeks ago; today's longer trip is probably in her favour and she's likely to be right in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

Four-time hurdle winner; runner-up on four of her five appearances this season, most recently when losing out only narrowly at Kempton (2m, soft) last month; 3lb rise puts her on new career-high mark but she ought to make her presence felt again.

Two hurdle wins from 14 attempts for Henry de Bromhead, mostly at about 2m but latest win was over 2m3f at Downpatrick (good to yielding) last June; sold for £20,000 since last seen in September; needs to show she's suited by 2m4f on soft and she goes without her regular tongue-tie.
