Irish point winner who is also a dual scorer over hurdles but she has been off the track for a year since pulled up in 2m4f handicap hurdle here; returns over fences after a wind op and she can't be discounted with her yard going well.

11st 9lb

J: Nico de Boinville

T: Nicky Henderson

A dual scorer over hurdles (including at 3m) but also a winning pointer and no surprise to see her take to fences when going down narrowly in a small field at Sandown (2m4f, good) on her return from a year out and wind surgery; that form looks okay with the winner completing a hat-trick; chance.

Very lightly raced since course win over hurdles in May 2021 but made promising seasonal/chase/handicap debut when third of four at Sandown (2m4f, good) six weeks ago and has obvious scope to build on that performance.

Acts on soft; walked over on chase debut in November; had started the season with an excellent second over hurdles in 3m Aintree handicap but, with tongue-tie going on, he was an odds-on flop over fences at Sandown on latest outing; has a lot to learn judged on that but cheekpieces are now added.
