Hadn't shown a lot until improving to finish second to the useful Printing Dollars at Exeter in January, staying on well late; may not find this enough of a test today and not seen out since then either; yard very quiet too.
Twice a winner already, albeit one of them was a match and she was sent off 2-11 for it; bit disappointing given she was made favourite at Warwick last time, made mistakes, and she needs to pick her feet up better here. Chances if she does.
Winner of three of her last five, and ran perfectly well given a seven month absence at Stratford last month; conditions fine here, and if she's come on a little for that run, looks one of the main players today.
First start for her new yard after becoming disappointing for previous connections; arguably faces an easier task but knowing exactly where we are with her form-wise is a bit of a guess, so may be best watched at present.
Placed in a Newcastle novice hurdle (heavy ground) in March but other than that, little to show for her efforts so far; early days so could conceivably improve, but in truth needs to.
Definite signs of ability when a staying-on fourth at Ffos Las on hurdles debut back in June, but two subsequent efforts not so good; however, looks on a fair mark for handicap debut and gets headgear for the first time, so could improve plenty.
