Won a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle (2m2f, good) in August, since run solid races at the same track and Clonmel over slightly further trips. Should be competitive back down in distance.
Good effort here in August over fences (third, beaten less than a length) but typically not as good since when over timber at Kilbeggan (2m3½f, good). Yet to win over these obstacles.
Kilbeggan maiden hurdle winner (2m, good) last month before close third of 16 in handicap company at Navan (2m, good to firm) off mark of 113. Improving all the while since joining this trainer.
Consistent mare but has proven expensive to follow for favourite backers being turned over three times last winter when market leader. Also won a Clonmel maiden over 2m (heavy) in February 2017. Below best on return at Galway last month.
Former Flat performer for Pascal Bary in France before winning on stable debut in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in February. Close third a month later at Limerick in what now looks an ordinary contest. Watch betting on return.
