Won three handicaps on the trot between April and June, at 3m1f-3m2f (on soft and good); excused an Exeter defeat after a break but she couldn't hold her position when fifth to Gaye Legacy at Market Rasen in November (2m7f, good to soft) and needs more.

Form & Verdict
Unable to match peak form since returning from a break in November but seemed to respond well to first-time blinkers when fifth of 17 in competitive series final at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month and is another 2lb lower here; could have a say if stamina holds out over new trip.

No longer the force of old but was second off 3lb higher here (3m1f, good to soft) in November and both subsequent runs (2m4f/2m3f) were arguably a fair bit better than the distances she was beaten might suggest; swaps cheekpieces for refitted blinkers; can't be ruled out.

Neither 3m2f trip nor familiar assertive tactics to blame when dropping out quickly on last month's chasing debut at Newton Abbot (beaten 28l); needs to jump better, but too early to write off; down a useful 6lb.

Had rather mixed record over hurdles but won by 16l here (3m2f, good) in the autumn and returned from layoff with very respectable run over similar trip at Stratford last month; has possibilities if she takes well to chasing but may be reliant on good ground.
