Gained a first win last month with a C&D success and good runs in defeat twice since including when only narrowly denied over C&D last week when she had the worst of the draw; not ideally drawn again but leniently left on the same mark; leading claims.

Won back-to-back over 7f here earlier in the winter and has run well in defeat since, including when only beaten roughly 1l behind Skontonovski last week; 5lb swing in the weights may help reverse the form and he has a better drawn than his rival this time too.
