Has a couple of course wins to her name over hurdles but finished tailed off on her debut over fences here last month and is hard to recommend on that evidence.
Victorious at Worcester in September (2m4f, good) but held from an 11lb higher mark at Fakenham next time out. Also brushed aside at Catterick a fortnight ago and needs to be at her best to have an impact here.
Unexposed over fences and did show signs of ability with a fair effort on chase debut at Warwick in November. Jumping let her down last time though and the mare is hard to put forward on that display.
Not firing this season and possible this trip is well short of her optimum distance. Likes this course but would need the heavens to open to boost her chances judging by recent form.
Has ability over fences and comes here on the back of her best effort over fences so far. Sound chance of hitting the mark if she takes a further step forward this time.
Faced a stiff test against a couple of more progressive types at Ludlow on her penultimate start but was well held latest. The drop in trip can help today though. Place claims if she copes.
Definite signs that the mare can pay her way over fences but it;'s been a while since she's been tried over the larger obstacles and she needs to better her most recent hurdles performance. Others more convincing.
Won three low-key races last season but no signs of rustiness with a fair display on her return at Hereford last month (Misty Mal held on that occasion). The drop in trip should suit today. Place claims at least.
