Bred by Shadwell and a winner of a seven furlong Maiden at Lingfield at two, a ten furlong Epsom Handicap at three and placed second twice and third once from just seven starts, Mark bought this rangy, well made filly at Tattersalls Ireland Sales in August 2017.

She has the natural scope and temperament, an indication of which is shown in the picture below, to hurdle; if you go here you can see her developing her hurdling skills accelerating away from a jump in a grid; and here you can see her jumping full sized hurdles for the first time on the 20th of November being led by Spice Fair. She ran for the first time over hurdle at Newbury's December Meeting and ran a race of quiet promise, jumping well after pulling hard early on her first start for more than a year; she followed this up with an equally promising run at Ludlow in the middle of January jumping the last in fourth; with a little more experience she should become a very effective and competitive person under NH Rules, particularly in Novice Handicap Hurdles.
