First start since wind surgery came when winning a nine runner novice hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good-to-soft) in June. Odds-on favourite when 5L second at Uttoxeter (2m, good) subsequently and can go well on return from a break.
Career best effort in finishing a nose second in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m at Bangor (good) three weeks ago. Remains open to improvement and is a notable runner in this contest.
Signs of ability in two starts in bumpers to date including when third in a small field contest over an extended 2m1f at Fontwell (good-to-soft) in June. Interesting to see how she fares on hurdling debut.
Finished last on both starts in bumpers and was beaten 72L over 2m at Uttoxeter (good) last time out. More needed on first outing over hurdles.
Placed six times on the Flat most recently off a mark of 59 at Windsor (1m2f, good) early last month. Market likely to provide the best guide as to expectations on hurdling debut.
