12.48 Uttoxeter – Kateira – WON 15/8

An extremely impressive winner on her racecourse debut at Huntingdon when having been held up off the pace, she cruised through the field into contention and then when asked to reel back in the leaders, she swept past them in the style of a good horse and pulled away for an emphatic victory. She was again ridden patiently at Aintree in a Grade 2 event at the Grand National meeting, travelling well she met with a fair amount of trouble and found herself too far off the pace as the field turned for home. She did stay on well into 5th place, but the front 4 were always up with the pace and she could never really land a blow. Reports from the yard suggest she’s expected to prove herself a more than useful novice hurdler this season and she is taken to win hurdling debut.
