15:50 Doncaster Wed 9 January 2019
Bumper and maiden hurdle winner in Ireland. Weakened quickly on stable debut. Headgear now tried and if back to her best she can't be ruled out.
Has not has the easiest of tasks in her two handicap runs to date. Drops 4lb and also in grade here, so could do better with first-time cheekpieces to help.
Respectable runs on her last two starts when with Gordon Elliott last year. Bought for €30,000 since her last run and makes her debut for a trainer in decent form. Initial mark looks stiff, but market check advised.
Won a bumper on good in 2017. Trip and conditions should suit here. Had run well at Newcastle two starts ago, but soft ground probable excuse last time. 3lb drop. Should go well.
Won four times at up to 1m2f for Mark Johnston on Flat/AW. Seven-race maiden over hurdles, but not ruled out back on good ground under a claimer.
