Donald McCain Jr’s filly was a fair sort on the flat but landed three victory over hurdles in a row at Musselburgh, including in the Scottish Triumph Hurdle.

She was no match for Monmiral or Adagio in the Grade 1 Anniversary at Aintree last week, but looks to have a great chance now in a handicap against her own sex.

If able to cope with the quick turnaround from her Merseyside exploits, she looks to have a cracking chance here, albeit giving weight all around on her Cheltenham debut.
