A fairly useful hurdles winner in France but she's yet to get her head in front in this country and beat only one for her new yard after a wind op in 2m Hereford handicap 32 days ago; others are preferred.

Dual 2m3f chase winner at Catterick last season who posted another good effort there when second in 2m3f handicap chase a fortnight ago; she reverts to hurdles off a lower mark so needs considering.

Plenty to like about how she kept on for fourth in a good-ground 2m maiden here in November and that form looks okay, as the winner is classy, the second has won twice since and the third has also run well; failed to build on that on her handicap debut at Sedgefield but soft ground was perhaps a factor and she lost a shoe; respected.
