Northern Beau ran six times on the Flat without distinction but found her niche in Irish points, winning twice. She’s joined Michael Scudamore for the start of her career over hurdles but may not have the pace to cope with SIMONE, who won a bumper and has run well in both starts over hurdles. Toboggan's Fire won four times on the Flat, though never beyond an extended mile so may have stamina limitations. Hot Gossip was beaten 20 lengths when third at Perth back in September while Autumn Surprise took a backward step on her second start at Wetherby and after an earlier third there.
