Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish filly who's done most racing on Polytrack, struggling since breaking her duck in first-time cheekpieces in June; again likely to be dropped in from a double-figure stall and she needs to improve for the surface switch.

Won two 7f AW handicaps in 2021, at Lingfield and here; less effective back at Chelmsford in two runs since and although the latest of them will have been needed after a break she was beaten too far to have high hopes here.

Two AW wins since joining current yard, more recently over this trip at Wolverhampton five weeks ago; runner-up there has won since so a 5lb rise probably justified; couldn't rule out further progress.

Form & Verdict

It's been a pattern of one good run, one bad run all year, but he did well for cheekpieces and blinkers first going on, which bodes well in a first-time visor; he also ran well on his AW (Polytrack) debut 12 days ago, so needs considering.

Has a patchy record but he got up close home at Chelmsford (6f) in November and was a fair third behind an all-the-way winner over C&D ten days ago; has claims if he can build on that and three of his four wins have come at this track.
