OR:

Form & Verdict
Two Irish runs in the spring and the second, when beaten little more than 6l at Kilbeggan in April, was an improvement on her debut; has joined a good team for British career and should go very close here.

Lightly raced 6yo who doesn't look the easiest of rides and best form thus far has come on good ground; however, she stormed home for 2l fourth on handicap debut at Doncaster (2m, good) in November, despite being hampered after final flight, and could prove well treated when things really click.

Placed in her final two bumpers; still went off at 200-1 and 150-1 in her two runs over hurdles and didn't accomplish enough to be taken seriously in this sphere just yet, but there was some headway before she weakened badly from two out at Southwell last time.
