15:55 Sedgefield Tue 12 March 2019
Six-race rules maiden (3m PTP winner); ran reasonably in the context of this race on her penultimate start (2m, Chepstow) when caught a fraction on the back foot as the race developed; didn't quite stay an extended 2m5f trip latest; chance.
Bought for 10,000gns in October 2018 as a three-time winner on the Flat in France; hasn't quite managed to repeat the promise of her opening hurdles effort (fell) in either subsequent start, admittedly was outclassed by the winner at Newcastle.
11-race maiden under rules in Ireland; showed improved form when sticking on to finish second to Chosen Hour at Limerick (2m5f, soft) in December; beaten 4/6f when a 6L runner up on stable debut at Catterick (2m3f+) last month.
Southwell bumper winner (good) on debut in September 2017; perfectly fair to say that she's proved bitterly disappointing since (mainly at 2m4f over hurdles); handicap mark on the slide; drop back in trip a positive move.
0-11 over hurdles and soon beaten in a Class 4 handicap over an extended 2m3f+ here nine days ago; difficult to enthuse over on ground which is probably far softer than ideal.
Longstanding Flat maiden for Mick Channon (0-14); hasn't looked at all convincing in three starts over hurdles for Embleton-based trainer Victor Thompson; makes no appeal whatsoever on handicap debut.
