Did not fire when beaten favourite at Plumpton three weeks ago but was in good form beforehand, notably when opening account at Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) in November; still on a workable mark; big player if back on song.

Came readily clear at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) and probably ran as well under a penalty at Hereford only to bump into a rejuvenated winner; up another 2lb but should give her running and be involved.

Nearly all handicap runs on good and good to soft but she was fine on heavy at Fontwell (2m3f) last week when a clear winner; appeared not to have too hard a race there and has a good chance under penalty (due the same rise in future) to make it three wins from her last five starts.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed mare who looks well handicapped on form shown in two 2m junior hurdles in autumn 2022 and had valid excuse when pulled up on latest outing in January 2023 (finished lame); could be dangerous if fully tuned up for this handicap debut.

Got off the mark in similar race to this over C&D (heavy) in November, after a break; only 3lb higher today but was pulled up on two of her next three outings and it's hard to predict how she'll fare today.
