Belatedly off the mark over hurdles in Newcastle maiden (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) last November but hasn't built on that success and strike-rate in this sphere now stands at 1-20; didn't run badly last month, after a break, but others appeal more; blinkers tried today.

Found a rich seam of form earlier in the year winning three on the spin, including gamely over C&D (good to soft; from a 3lb lower mark); has seemingly went off the boil since - well held the last twice (here and Perth) - and mightn't necessarily appreciate the forecast quick ground.

Nothing like the force of old but enjoyed a mini-revival and won three times in February/March (2m4f, good to soft-heavy); needs to bounce back from a disappointing effort on good ground four weeks ago, though, and the cheekpieces didn't appear to help much when used in a chase this winter.

Two wins last month (2m4f, soft/heavy) and defied new mark to land hat-trick over C&D (good to soft) last Tuesday; had to work hard last time so may be vulnerable under a 7lb penalty, and she's unproven on good going, but she remains well treated on old form and could have more left in the tank.
