Low-mileage 9yo who has won her last two, the latest over C&D by a head margin; 6lb higher mark might leave her vulnerable but she's still a major player in what's not a strong contest.

Won three in a row in July-September last year and she ended 2023 with close third at Worcester (2m, good to soft); only 1lb higher than for that run and she had an excuse when badly hampered at Ludlow on her recent return; not ruled out.

In career-best form when last seen and only just came up shy at Worcester (2m, good to soft; fine on good) when bidding for a four-timer; still competitively treated but lacking a run could find her out.

Usually ridden very patiently and is quite a tricky mare to win with but she's pretty consistent and was beaten only by a neck by Saddlers Quest at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good to soft) one month ago when last seen; raced mainly on good ground; probably won't be far away.

Belied 50-1 odds when very respectable fourth over C&D (good) 11 days ago and is 1lb lower now but her record in Britain is very mixed and others in this line-up are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict
Bled from the nose when pulling up on her latest chase start; that's more her game (5-20; 0-11 hurdling) but she's handicapped accordingly and, despite this trip being perhaps on the short side, it wouldn't be a surprise to see her on the scene.

Bled from the nose when pulling up at Worcester in July and she ran as if something was amiss, jumping badly to her right, at Fontwell on latest outing; competitive mark judged on plenty of other form but a note of caution has been sounded.

Sole win in 12 hurdle runs (also 0-4 chasing) came in a maiden at Exeter in early 2021; kept to the Flat this year, mostly disappointing other than when second at Salisbury in May; dangerous to entirely dismiss.
