Form & Verdict
Listed runner-up in December 2020 and, having dropped down the weights, she returned to form with a comfortable win at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) recently on her second start for Harry Fry; hit with a 9lb rise but she could still be well treated in view of her old form.

4-11 over hurdles when trained by Stuart Edmunds and and ran big race in defeat behind resurgent rival on last month's seasonal/stable debut at Plumpton (2m4f, soft; first-time cheekpieces); big player if that level of form can be transferred to fences on this chasing debut.

Form & Verdict
Won a 2m maiden hurdle at Hereford in February on her final run for Michael Scudamore and good second in 2m handicap there on stable debut in October; two fair Flat runs have followed (2m, AW); given she stays well on the Flat, the step back up in trip is an interesting move and could bear fruit.
