Emphatic 6L winner at Kempton (2m4f+, good to soft) on her penultimate start and ran a very respectable race (off an 8lb higher mark) when upped to 3m at Warwick next time; slight suspicion that she's strongest going right-handed.
Now rated 4lb lower than when battling to victory at Uttoxeter (2m6f+, heavy) in January 2018. However, that race seemingly took it's toll as she's under-performed ever since; back fresh from an 81-day break and the yard are in excellent form.
A six-time winner over fences at the likes of Sedgefield, Kelso and Wetherby; difficult to draw too much from her more recent efforts, but she's slipped to a more manageable mark (fallen 10lb since Boxing Day); stays this trip.
Stayed on strongly to beat the subsequent two-time winner The Paddy Pie on chasing debut at Hexham (2m4f, soft) in October 2018; disappointed four-weeks later at Ayr and absent since; still retains scope for further success off this mark (116).
