- 1m 7f 171y,
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Stuck her head down in a most game fashion to score at Warwick two starts ago, poor at Fakenham last time but possibly doesn't stay 20f and this drop back to the minimum may help. Chances of bouncing back.
Just the one win in 18 starts (on the Flat for Eve Johnson-Houghton last year), not shown much over hurdles so far but it's early days and she goes handicapping on a realistic mark. Conditions fine, and watch market is the advice.
Just two wins in 23 starts, so no win machine, and in truth going nowhere quickly at present and falling mark reflects this. May improve a little for recent run (which came after a break) but usually beatable, and others make more appeal.
Caught the eye in a couple of novice hurdles last year and although three starts in handicaps have not been great, she's a possible improver coming back of an absence. Yard ticking over nicely and she's not discounted.
Game little mare that tries hard, has produced some decent performances at her favoured Plumpton and was in the frame again on her final start. Will give it a good go and she should take a medal of some colour home again.
Last Year's Winner
Lace Bonnet (9/4), Kiruna Peak (5/2), Golden Cannon (10/3), Last Enchantment (4/1), Musical Stardust (12/1)
