Off the mark over hurdles at 12th attempt, keeping on well to beat Arctic Mann at Carlisle (3m1f, soft) last month; 4lb rise demands a bit more from her here but she's evidently in very good nick.

0-9 over hurdles but has made the frame on last five appearances, most recently when clear second to Cream Of The West here (2m5f, soft) in December; has to take a 3lb rise on the chin but is likely to give another good account if stamina holds out.
