Promising in bumpers last season and won four-runner novice hurdle by 19l at Aintree (2m1f, good) three weeks ago; the value of that recent form is open to question (short-odds favourite disappointed) but she still commands respect.

Fairly useful on Flat for previous stable and chased home notable rivals in first two attempts over hurdles; struggled in the Boodles at Cheltenham most recently (had wind surgery since) but holds leading claims back down markedly in class.
