Pacy mare; made all at Newcastle (5f; 33-1) in January and consistent in defeat (over 6f) on her next two starts; her latest effort (last of four) was disappointing though, so she'd have a bit to prove back on turf, particularly on soft ground; clear risks attached.

Had a fine time of things last year and she was back on the up when winning a 5f handicap at Newcastle on her return to action in January; good second over 6f there in February but her form dipped last time when she may have done too much early; penultimate effort offers hope she's still well treated and returning to 5f no issue.

Wasn't great at Brighton on her penultimate run but perhaps failed to handle that track and she's performed to a consistent level in her other three runs, including a 2l defeat on her nursery debut at Wolverhampton (6f); had been running over 7f and this stiffer 6f should benefit her.
