Form & Verdict
Good bumper campaign in Ireland included a Grade 2 mares' win; further Graded races in her first two hurdle races also read well last term but she was pulled up next time and comprehensively turned over when 8-15 at Catterick last month after 332 days off; questions to answer after that but she's still on the shortlist.

Several decent efforts over hurdles, all with give in the ground; off the mark in a mares' maiden at Ayr last time (2m, soft) having been well beaten at 8-15 at Catterick on previous start (1m7f, soft) when returning from a break; going a concern and this looks tougher.

Runner-up in four of 11 races over hurdles, last of those in a maiden at Cheltenham (2m, soft) three starts ago; well beaten trying 2m4f and 2m2f since, last time when experimenting with cheekpieces in a valuable handicap; good chance if this drop back in trip brings her back to form.
