- Kelso Races Annual Members Trip 2019 Mares' Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
- 2m 5f 55y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Winner of each of her last three completed starts including by ½L in a four runner 2m7f handicap hurdle at Worcester (good-to-soft) in July. Leading contender off a 9lb higher mark on her return from a break.
Shown good form in three starts since returning this year including when winning by 1L in first time cheekpieces (retained) over 2m4f at Fakenham (good) when last in action back in May. One to note following a 4lb rise in the weights.
Built on a promising third over an extended 3m at Ayr (good) in April when winning by a short-head in a 2m7f event at Exeter (good) the following month. Worth a check in the market off a 5lb higher mark.
Made a winning return to hurdles with victory by 1½L in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m5f at Fontwell (good) on last months seasonal debut. Raised 4lb for that victory and is worth a check in the market on this occasion.
Dual hurdles winner most recently by 14L over an extended 2m4f at Southwell (good) in July. Good 4L third at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) subsequently and she is an interesting runner in this event.
Well beaten 54L tenth of 13 in a handicap chase over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen (good) on return from a break recently. Probably best watched on her return to hurdling.
Made a winning seasonal debut when victorious in a 2m5f handicap hurdle at Warwick (good-to-firm) last month. Has to defy a 5lb rise in the weights if she is to follow up.
Broke her maiden when victorious by 6L in a 16 runner handicap hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Bangor (good) in August. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day retained when runner-up at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) subsequently.
Promising 4L third when making her handicap debut in a good ground contest over this C&D at the start of April. Likely more needed if she is to take this contest.
