Form & Verdict
Sligo bumper winner on debut; impressed in landing Grade 2 Mares' bumper at Leopardstown in February (Rockstown Girl 10l third); never involved in the Grade 1 bumper at Cheltenham; raced a bit too keenly and dented her reputation when only fourth in a Grade 3 event at Punchestown, with two short-priced stablemates doing better; strong chance if settling effectively.
