Some ability in bumpers; third in a maiden hurdle at Cork in March on heavy ground; well below that level at Ballinrobe; bounced back from that reverse to score in first-time cheekpieces at Listowel; needs to find plenty more improvement since she meets Instant Tendance on 13lb worse than handicap terms.
