9st 8lb

J: Harry Davies

T: Simon & Ed Crisford

Lightly raced 4yo who made a it 3-5 when completing a Wolverhampton double (2m, Tapeta) last month; didn't fire in her hat-trick bid there (well-held fourth of five) last time but that was in a tactical event at 1m6f and she could resume her progress on this step back up in trip; dangerous.

Progressive filly whose record is 3-5, the wins gained over 1m4f at Lingfield in November and over 2m here on last two starts; Harry Burns's useful claim offsets a 5lb rise in the weights; leading player provided she's as effective back down in trip (first go at 1m6f).
