Triple bumper winner last term, including Kempton listed. Jumping not up to scratch when second on Fontwell hurdle bow last month but could be different proposition with that experience behind her.

Better effort in bumpers 7 months apart when 8 lengths fourth at Aintree weeks ago. Doesn't strike as an obvious type to make a winning start over hurdles.

Has only hinted at ability in a Sedgefield bumper and C&D maiden hurdle so far.

Fifth in a couple of maiden hurdles for Jamie Snowden last winter. Improvement will be required if she's to make a successful start for her new trainer Donald McCain.

Showed promise on the first of starts in bumpers for Sue Smith in spring 2019 but well held in C&D maiden on last month's return for her new trainer.
|30/10/20||Uttoxeter||12/13||Hurdle||1m 7f 168y||Soft||11st 5lbs||Sean Quinlan||167.73|

Fourth bin a couple of hurdles in France in 2019. Taken a bit of time to get her back but is a potential improver for new yard. Has had wind surgery. Also wears a hood.
|04/05/19||Vichy||4/10||Hurdle||2m 89y||Gd/Sft||10st 8lbs||Ludovic Philipperon||-|
|03/04/19||Fontainebleau||4/7||Hurdle||1m 6f 201y||Soft||10st 6lbs||Ludovic Philipperon||7.8|
Best effort in bumpers when fourth at Newbury in February but she did enjoy the run of things from the front. Switches to hurdles after 8 months off.
|28/02/20||Newbury||4/11||Bumper||2m 69y||Soft||10st 12lbs||Jonathan Burke||36|

|21/11/19||Market Rasen||5/7||Bumper||2m 125y||Soft||10st 5lbs||James Best||9.6|
Won both bumpers last season, the first one here on heavy. Should be up to making presence felt in race like this now hurdling.
|04/03/20||Catterick Bridge||1/6||Bumper||1m 7f 156y||Soft||11st 1lbs||Page Fuller||2.36|
|31/12/19||Uttoxeter||1/8||Bumper||1m 7f 168y||Heavy||11st 2lbs||Page Fuller||14.63|
Won 3-runner event on sole point start. Some promise when fourth at Hexham on hurdle debut but not in the same form over this C&D since.
|30/10/20||Uttoxeter||10/13||Hurdle||1m 7f 168y||Soft||11st 5lbs||Stan Sheppard||11.56|

£2,000 Mahler mare. Dam unraced half-sister to high-class hurdler/smart chaser (winner up to 25f) Identity Thief. Would be a surprise winner on debut.
COQUELICOT was turned over at short odds on her hurdling debut but her jumping could be sharper with that experience behind her and she has to be worth another chance given the level of her bumper form. Hurdle newcomers Anythingforlove and Pure Bliss were also successful in bumpers and could be the pair to give her most to do.
