Made perfect start to her career when successful on debut in a "Junior" bumper at Warwick (1m6f; good). Couldn't quite reproduce that level in two subsequent runs. However, she is one of the likelier contenders and should be competitive.
Only sixth of seven on rules debut (well-beaten) in a C&D bumper back in May. More of the same expected in this much better contest, and she can only be watched.
Ended productive season in bumpers last year with a fine fourth in the Grade 3 Irish EBF Mares INH Flat Race at the Punchestown Festival (2m; yielding). That form is by far the strongest on offer, and she should be difficult to beat on hurdles bow.
Belied odds of 50-1 when managing to finish fourth on hurdles debut at Warwick (2m; good to soft) on seasonal reappearance in September. Will need to improve from that, but she would hold place claims in this stronger race if doing so.
10-race maiden (0-6 over hurdles). Makes stable debut, but form of yard is of concern. Unlikely to pose a serious threat to the leading contenders on her first run on these shores.
£16,000 purchase from the 2019 Doncaster May sale. 0-4 in point-to-point's, but made the frame in all but one of those contests. This is a hot race to start rules career off in, and so she is best watched for now.
Out of her depth when pitched into a 'Listed' contest on her hurdles debut at Sandown (3m; good) in March. Now drops down markedly in trip on seasonal return but plenty more is required than what she has shown so far.
Looked in need of the experience when sixth at Chepstow (2m3f; soft) on hurdles debut last Friday. Should improve but needs to as this is a hotter contest than the one she ran in last week.
Made a highly promising start to life when runner-up behind hot-favourite Subway Surf (4/7f) at Chepstow (2m; good to soft). Then ran too bad to be true when only 10th at Bangor-on-dee (2m; good) next time out. Place claims.
Contested bumpers last season and impressed when making a winning debut at Southwell (1m7f; good to soft). Then ran in some quality contests including the Aintree Mares' Bumper when not disgraced. Prominent role to play on hurdles debut.
