Showed ability in bumpers, including on reappearance last month; however, plenty of stamina on dam's side and might find this an inadequate stamina test on hurdle debut.

Third in a point-to-point bumper in April 2021 but has shown more temperament than ability over hurdles (refused to race once and was reluctant to race last time); hard to fancy.
