Form & Verdict
Three-time bumper runner-up who was suited by the step up in trip when winning at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) last month on her second hurdle start; penalised here but she's a solid contender nevertheless.

Tailed off in Listed bumper but had come second in her first three bumpers and returned to form when third of 13 in maiden at Catterick (1m7f, soft) four weeks ago on hurdle debut, just behind Phone Home; new trip is plausible, with dam a 2m4f hurdle winner, and she's a contender on form.

Disappointing at Ludlow in December last time out (lost a shoe) but this bumper winner (2m, good to soft) was previously a promising third on her hurdle debut at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) and is a key player if bouncing back to form in a first-time hood.

Well bred and hinted at promise when sixth of 18 on sole bumper start at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft); tailed off at 33-1 on last month's hurdle debut there but was back from an absence and made a bad mistake four out (also lost a shoe); could improve and not discounted.

92,000euros 3yo and half-sister to six winners; encouraging debut when about 10l behind Goodtimecrew and Larchmont Lass in the bumper on this card 12 months ago; clearly has ability but being off for 12 months is not ideal.
