Cost £40,000 as a 3yo; very low-key over hurdles so far; 50-1 when left toiling behind Bullionaire at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) 34 days ago.
Finished 8L second to Highway One O One on hurdles debut at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) in October 2017; 0-11 on the Flat since, so unsurprisingly has another attempt over timber.
76-rated on the Flat (1-15); placed on hurdles debut at Plumpton (2m, heavy) in December, albeit was beaten 24L by Highway One O Two; others make more appeal.
Joined Venetia Williams for €80,000 in November 2018; highly tried on stable debut at Chepstow; disappointing when beaten in excess of 20L by St Barts in a 2m4f Uttoxeter maiden (heavy) since; capable of better?
Sets the clear form standard; stayed on from off the pace to finish fourth to the front-running Guardia Top at Sandown (2m, soft) in early December; highly likely to relish the return to a more suitable trip (dam was a 3m7f winner).
Presenting mare; justified favouritism on debut when winning a bumper at Uttoxeter on New Year's Eve 2018; should take on board the experience gained from her hurdles debut at Uttoxeter 73-days ago; a possible player.
Half-sister to the 2m7f hurdle winner No Trumps (also carries the silks of HM The Queen); 50-1 when seventh of 13 to Getaway Totherock on hurdles debut at Ludlow (2m5½f, soft).
