Sent off 11-4 favourite when making an eyecatching winning debut over 6f here in November, coming from nowhere to get up right on the line; couldn't make a serious impact under a penalty at Southwell (7f) but he did step up on his initial form and should have more to offer now handicapping over this trip; dangerous.

Sent off 11-4 favourite when making an eye-catching winning debut over 6f at Newcastle last month, coming from nowhere to get up right on the line; possible to pick holes in the form with the runner-up now a 19-race maiden, and although the trip ought to be within range and he should improve, it's likely he will need to.

Half-brother to five winners; blew the start and got well behind before coming home powerfully over C&D three weeks ago (three of these behind); needs to improve on that under a penalty but there's a good chance he will for a yard going great guns.

Form & Verdict

Usually wears hood; rather a frustrating filly who hasn't progressed over 7f/1m and the switch to Tapeta had no effect at Wolverhampton the last twice; however, leading player on peak form and this experiment (new trip, change of headgear) may reinvigorate her.

Nicely-bred filly picked up for 10,000gns in December after going 0-10 for Simon and Ed Crisford; didn't set the world alight when tried in cheekpieces for a maiden on stable bow two weeks ago but entitled to come on from that and will be more comfortable now back in a handicap; follow leads.

Of serious interest on her summer form but her progress has stalled more recently; not beaten far in a Newcastle novice 17 days ago (first-time visor, retained) but that was a strange race and the form is questionable; wide draw back in a handicap and there are risks attached.
