Form & Verdict
Useful form in bumpers before improved with greater stamina test under positive ride in 2m2f Punchestown mares contest in December (heavy); again made plenty of use of on hurdles debut there following month but faded badly from home turn over 2m4f; may need to be ridden with a bit more restraint to see this out although this looks a weaker race.
