Four Flat wins (pretty useful form) in a row last August-October, on good ground and yielding; concluded a busy 2023 by justifying favouritism in 11-runner maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse (2m, heavy) in November, making most and rallying to deal with a fairly useful rival in clearcut style; trainer said that day that she would have a well-deserved rest and she's not been seen since; others have shown much better form in the interim but she's promising.
