Best run was here when second in a heavy-ground nursery; those conditions perhaps what she wants, though was close up behind Hanoi and Killeaney Bear on good ground at Cork last time; drawn wide.

Narrowly beaten in Gowran nursery on final start at two; bit disappointing under Keane when sixth here over 1m4f on return and held by Killeaney Bear on that form; capable of better though and another top jockey booked.

Improvement (first-time hood, slower ground and more forceful tactics given as reasons) to get off the mark in 1m Naas handicap last Sunday, staying on well to hold off older rivals; 3lb rise seems okay and big player again if staying this longer trip.
