Placed on her first two starts (Wolverhampton & Beverley; 7f-7.5f); had a valid excuse - bumped at the start - for a laboured effort last time; while she doesn't necessarily appear to be an obvious winner in waiting, this is a modest affair in which to seek to make the transition to nurseries.

Seven-race maiden; didn't have things go his way - bumped at the start and also ran wide - when returning from a gelding operation at Lingfield (1m2f; 40-1) six-weeks ago; his overall profile isn't that enticing though as the handicapper cuts him yet more slack (down 3lb).
