Form & Verdict

Ten-race maiden but was a respectable 5l third behind a big improver at Kempton (1m4f, AW) on her final run for Roger Teal last month; return to Tapeta is no problem and has each-way claims on her stable debut; change of headgear.

No progress in eight starts for Mark Johnston and she beat only one rival in a big field at Ffos Las (1m2f, good to soft) on recent stable debut; mark continues to fall but has quite a lot to prove, including stamina at this new trip; hood back on.

Didn't show a great deal in her first four starts but stepped up on that when 25-1 and keeping on for second at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to soft) on her penultimate start; didn't totally convince she got this trip over C&D last time, but nor did she get the breaks at a vital time; not ruled out.

Losing run goes back two years; has mostly run over further for this yard but he's run respectably in defeat at about 1m5f of late and refitting cheekpieces could help, having run three of his best races in them.
