A smart performer at the back end of last season when bumped up to three miles on good ground at Newbury over course and distance, beating Welsh Grand National and Warwick Classic Handicap Chase winner Iwilldoit easily off a mark of 120.
Dropped down in trip at Cheltenham in April in a Listed Mares Handicap Hurdle she showed she needed to go back up in trip when only fourth of nine and then back up to 2m7f when last seen in May at Market Rasen, she got back to winning ways in fine style.
