Form & Verdict

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.

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.

£67,000 breeze-up purchase in the summer who showed promise when fourth on the second of two outings on Wolverhampton's Tapeta (8.6f/7f) in recent weeks; has taken a strong hold on both starts so it's possible this drop to 6f will suit.
