Dual winning pointer who showed useful form in three starts over hurdles last season, including when second of 13 on handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) in March; not seen since pulling up at Auteuil (2m3f, heavy) in April, but is proven fresh and shouldn't be underestimated on chase debut.

Two wins and three seconds from her five runs in British points; two front-running wins in mares' maiden/novice hurdles at Lingfield and Warwick (2m3f/2m5f; both soft ground), showing plenty of grit on the latter occasion (form looks solid); she moves into handicaps with the potential to do even better.
