C&D winner last December when conditions were soft but said to want better ground. Whether she wants it as quick as forecast is another matter so a spot of rain would not go amiss. Stable do well here and are 5-20 with hurdlers this term.
Opened her account on soft ground in a novice event at Southwell but subsequently struggled under a penalty in similar company. Handicap mark looks feasible if conditions are not too quick.
Disappointed on latest start but a break since seems telling. Claims on previous efforts and represents last year's winning yard.
Opened her account at Worcester over 2m when again not looking straightforward. Showed she stayed this far on previous start but biggest question is whether she has the experience to come out on top in a battle.
Downpatrick winner went close on her next start but has been comfortably held on both starts since. Will not have travelled from Ireland without good cause and top rider 2-4 for the stable.
Best run in three over hurdles came here in January, however her form overall is moderate. Possible there will be improvement for the quicker ground that is forecast
