Progressed plenty since Uttoxeter win and after chasing home Posh Trish and the smart Lady Buttons she delivered a career best when a close fifth of 22 in Mares Novice at the Festival beating a host of these rivals, a repeat here may suffice.
Won well at Ludlow (2m5f) and Hereford (2m5½f) before coming unstuck in Sandown Grade Two latest where she was beaten 22L into fifth of six. Likes to dictate matters and left hand track may suit better but others have stronger form.
Now seems to have sorted out her jumping errors and followed a make all success at Newbury by finishing an excellent third of 14 there latest in a competitive handicap. Tougher task here however and danger her and Liberty Bella take each other on.
Comes here very much as the unknown quantity of the race after facile victories at Fontwell and Plumpton, her only two starts under rules. This will obviously be a major step up in class but could very easily be up to the task.
