Two wins (on very soft and good ground) from her first three starts and she was a fair fourth on her handicap debut at Cheltenham (2m1f, good) in April; improvement needed but she's unexposed and her top trainer has won the last two runnings, including with a 4yo last season; respected.

Had a very solid first season over hurdles, winning three times and going close in the Betfair Hurdle over C&D and the County Hurdle at Cheltenham, both on good to soft ground; has to be respected on his reappearance for a stable that has won two of the last three Gerry Feildens, although he'll need a career best conceding plenty of weight all round.
