Form & Verdict

Took well to visor at Kempton (7f, AW) on second start and her two subsequent efforts can be forgiven, latest at Southwell where she did too much up front; however, not sure what to expect with headgear removed.

Raced over 7f after debut, winning a novice on Kempton AW next time, but seemed perfectly at home when returned to 6f at Brighton recently, skating up from the front; unexposed at this trip but hard to equate that form on an awkward track to what will be needed here.

Landed a 7f Kempton novice on her second start; best effort since when runner-up in 7f Epsom nursery 18 days ago, with the way she went through that contest (travelled strongly in lead for a long way) suggesting this drop back to 6f will play to her strengths; prominent showing likely.

Went close off 3lb higher at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) in February but his form has nosedived in two subsequent runs; had an excuse in the mud at Thirsk last time but he's not easy to predict and is now 0-25 since his last win in 2022; down the list.

Both turf wins at about 7f on good to firm but he isn't inconvenienced by soft ground; much lower in the weights than 12 months ago and there were signs on his latest 1m start, at Southwell in February, that he could be about to exploit his current mark.

Losing run up to 23 though he came within half a length of ending the drought at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last time; races off the same mark and all three wins have come at around 7f, but he may prefer the extra furlong now.
