Appeared to take a step forward on latest but that form has been badly let down since and likely to do better when handicapping after this.
No sign of ability at big prices in two attempts since switched to hurdles and easy to look elsewhere.
Beaten in three bumpers when with Alan King and hasn't shown enough in two goes over hurdles for current yard to be of interest here.
25/1 when mid-division in Ludlow Bumper on racecourse debut a month ago. Now goes hurdling where she will need to improve.
Fetched €52,000 after landing a Point-to-point in Ireland a year ago. Strong in market on hurdling debut at Warwick but disappointed, though has had wind operation since and clearly capable of better.
Form in bumpers but hurdling career this term has been slow to get going. Didn't stay 3m on latest and capable of better now dropped to a more realistic trip.
Not disgraced at Taunton in a fair novice hurdle before she was out of her depth in a listed contest on return there. Yard enjoying a good spell and obvious claims today.
Below par effort on latest but previous two runs put her in the mix including a third here and if bouncing back to best has claims.
Third foal out of an unraced dam. Market should reveal expectations for this newcomer whose two half-brothers have shown a modicum of ability.
Subject of some support at Lingfield last time but well beaten third and the form has been made to look very poor by those that have run subsequently.
Several placed efforts at around this trip in Ireland without quite able to get her head in front. Stiff task on debut over here and this far more realistic task.
