12th foal; half-brother to various winners, the most relevant of which in the context of this race is the 2m hurdler Soleil D'Hiver.
€600 foal who is not only a point-to-point winner, but also the winner of a good ground C&D bumper (June). However, that form isn't overly exciting, and she ran in snatches following a short break at Market Rasen latest.
Dam a 2m4f hurdle winner; 50/1 for debut over C&D in April (soft) when finishing sixth of nine to Melekhov.
9,000gns yearling; brother to the 1m4f winner Recollection; not in the same parish as the unbeaten Longhouse Sale (beaten 25L) on debut at Market Rasen in August; more realistic assignment.
His dam was a 2m3f and 2m5f hurdle winner; pulled-up in all three starts in Irish point-to-points (3m).
Closely related to the 2m3f-3m hurdle/chase winner Mill Quest; showed signs of inexperience on debut at Hereford (2m, heavy) in April, but posted a most pleasing start in finishing a ½L second to Geordie B (form largely untested since).
Half-brother to the bumper winner Rosemary Russett; 16/1 when finishing a staying on 3L third to Northern Soul on debut at Market Rasen in April; form largely untested since.
First foal out of a fairly moderate dam (Aliceaneileen); beaten 12L when finishing fourth of seven to Carrie Des Champs at Perth (2m, good); significant improvement needed.
