Prominent racer; won on hurdles debut at Musselburgh (1m7½f, good) in November, beating today's rival West Coast Lass by a neck; back to that level of form over 2m4f latest when beaten 6L by I'm Too Generous.
11-race hurdles maiden (beaten miles in a 2m mares' novices' here recently); hasn't kicked on positively in 2019 after some reasonable efforts in late 2018; weighted to beat Iconic Belle on 1m7½f Musselburgh form, but far from guaranteed to do so.
Back from a 2½ year absence in late 2018; remains a maiden over hurdles (0-5), dropping out rapidly on handicap debut at Warwick (2m, good) five-weeks ago; 4lb lower; very risky proposition.
Has raised her game since wind surgery and although still fairly limited in terms of ability, stayed on determinedly to break the maiden in a CJ's handicap at Carlisle (2m1f, good) latest; 7lb higher; key player.
Won three PTP's (all over 3m) in the spring of 2018; 0-12 under rules, including when finishing a weakening 11th of 14 to Shanroe Al Co over 3m here last month; down in trip and 5lb lower with Brian Hughes booked; chance.
Yet to show even a glimmer of ability in 14 starts (all codes); 0-5 over hurdles; pulled up on soft ground at Hexham (2m4f) in November 2018; look elsewhere.
Unseated Billy Garritty at the fifth flight at Musselburgh (2m, good) on her last hurdles start a couple of months ago; has made little impact on the Flat since and without a win anywhere since June 2016.
