Ties in with Annaf on Portland form (finished 2l fourth); faced a much stiffer task in the Foret last Sunday (midfield); successful at this level in 2020/2021 but her subsequent strike-rate is underwhelming.

Usually aimed high and appreciated the return to Listed race when winning mares' race at Bath in April (5f, good to soft; also suited by 6f on good or quicker); can be excused her two starts since but lacks a recent run and this is her first run in a handicap.

Half-length behind Highfield Princess when seventh in the 6f Platinum Jubilee at this meeting 12 months ago (good to firm; has won on good to soft); unlike that one, though, she hasn't gone on to better things and she couldn't get her oar in behind Dramatised over 5f at Haydock 24 days ago.

Close fourth in Group 1 Sprint Cup here (6f, good to firm) in September 2021 and runner-up in Meydan Group 1 (6f, good) last March; hasn't hit the same heights since but returned to winning ways in Listed race for fillies and mares at Bath (5f, good to soft) last month and she's not ruled out.
