9st 9lb

Her first seven starts (7f-8.5f; five for Archie Watson) weren't brimming with encouragement but she took a good step forward when third of 12 at Newcastle 11 days ago on her drop to 5f; could fare better still as a sprinter and this race is weak; interesting.

Seven-race maiden who was soundly beaten on both starts for new stable last month (8.6f/1m); huge leap of faith is required to support her on her first attempt at a sprint trip.

0-6; has minor form claims but may be capable of improvement in this weak handicap on second run for new yard; not devoid of hope.

Didn't beat very many in five starts over 7f for Archie Watson last year and changed hands for 4,000gns in July; drops in grade, but enough to prove stepped up in trip on stable debut after six months off.

9st 4lb

J: Taylor Fisher

T: Archie Watson

Regressive with each appearance (based on RPR's), so it isn't difficult to understand why connections have elected to implement headgear; reportedly unsuited by good to firm ground when left toiling behind Moondial (last of nine) on Salisbury handicap debut.
