Lightly raced 3yo; best effort when winning Group 3 at Ayr (6f, good; 16-1; found plenty under pressure) on her final outing last year; pulled too hard over 7f when last of 12 in similar event at Newbury five weeks ago; carries some risks after that but returning to sprinting looks the right move.

Tough filly who showed improved form when stepped up to 6f last autumn, going close in an Ayr Group 3 before overcoming trouble in running in a Listed event at York; beaten favourite in small-field C&D conditions event on AW debut subsequently but it did come only 10 days after York and may have simply been a case of one outing too many.
