0-7; good run when second in a Curragh handicap on last start in October; 4lb rise isn't ideal but seems highly likely to improve over this new trip given her pedigree; yard won this last year.

Came good under more patient tactics when comfortable winner of what looked a decent AW maiden on Friday (fourth rated 78) and good claimer negates his penalty; looks the one to beat although soft ground is an imponderable.
