Runner-up in her latest two starts and major claims on those; anything but convincing in the early stages at Market Rasen this month (nearly refused at the first) but could prove hard to beat if behaving herself.

Knocking on the door prior to getting off the mark at the seventh attempt at Bangor (2m3f, good) in July; begins handicap life on a fair mark and this first foal of Listed winner Blue Buttons is open to further improvement, provided conditions suit (she's unproven on slow ground).

Still looking for a first win after 16 attempts over hurdles and has proved very expensive to follow; blinkers not the answer on latest two starts and a visor now given a go; obvious risks.
