Form & Verdict

Useful in bumpers last season and came good over hurdles at fourth attempt, making all to beat a next-time-out winner with a bit left up her sleeve at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft; first-time tongue-tie) last month; could still be very well treated after 7lb rise.

Has won mares' handicaps at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft) and Hereford (2m5f, soft) on her last two starts; up another 6lb (13lb rise in total) but of more concern is whether she will be as effective over this sharp 2m on better ground; cheekpieces now tried.

Posted the most encouraging of her three qualifying runs for Anthony Charlton when keeping-on fourth at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) last month; not obviously well treated for this stable/handicap debut but could have untapped potential over the longer trip.

Can play up at the start; close up in the second of three bumpers but a lesser effort in the third of them and needs to come on from her recent hurdle debut at Exeter (2m, good to soft) if she's to play a part.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish mare who returned from long absence with two good efforts at Ludlow for new stable this year, more recently when third of five on handicap debut (2m, soft) last month; ought to be suited by today's move back up in trip; probably won't be far away.
