Three fair efforts to date in similar contests with fourth, fifth and sixth placed finishes. This may be the weakest race she's contested so could well enhance those positions albeit she doesn't seem progressive.
100/1 fourth at Wexford in March her first glimmer and filled the same position there next after being well held at Tramore. This is a pretty ordinary affair so again in the hunt for a place.
Not got remotely close in maiden hurdles over 2m-2m4f in five races. No reason to expect more here.
Won mares maiden point-to-point on debut in January and finished fifth twice and fourth twice since then in maiden hurdles. This may prove easiest task so far so has genuine chances now.
Fair form in fifth and fourth in her two hurdle starts before reverting to a bumper latest where she again finished fourth. Has enough ability to win a race such as this and rates one of the more likely sorts.
Although she was beaten 22L there was plenty of promise about a fourth of 13 hurdles debut at Limerick. Shorter price there next however she could only manage a remote ninth and must bounce back now.
Slight signs of progress in last maiden hurdle (sixth) before going up 6f in trip for handicap bow where she finished midfield at Downpatrick. Back to 2m4f here which may prove ideal and one of the more likely sorts.
Getting no nearer over hurdles so switched to chasing latest where she was completely tailed off at 66/1. Back over hurdles again now but makes no appeal.
Five race maiden over timber and flickering signs of encouragement last August. Refused to race however on return at Ballinrobe last week so represents a huge risk now.
Big prices and yet to get anywhere near to being competitive over hurdles so far. Weakest race she's contested here but still expecting at best a midfield slot.
