Not looked anything special in seven previous starts over hurdles, slowly dropping down the weights in handicap company in each of her last three starts (mainly over 3m).
Didn't see all that much racing on the Flat, but has shaped as if she can pick up a small race over hurdles, with the pick of her three timber efforts coming on debut at Wetherby in November (2m good to soft).
Failed to complete in all four career starts, including on rules debut over C&D last month (heavy). Wears a first time hood and tongue tie.
Failed to beat a single rival in two starts in bumpers (head-strong on debut). Goes hurdling for the first time in a moderate affair, but impossible to enthuse over.
Unlike her five rivals, she is at least a winner; albeit in a 2m5f handicap chase at Cartmel in August 2017. Should go close if able to replicate her hurdles effort at Catterick in December 2015 (second to Actinpieces).
Made her first start for five months (hurdles debut) when finishing a keeping on 1+L third to Kick On Dottie at Hexham (2m good) just ten days ago. Should relish this longer trip under a useful 5lb claimer.
