Yet to win but she has been threatening here of late, coming from a poor position to take fourth over C&D ten days ago; Hollie Doyle takes over today and she's a contender, especially if breaking more smartly.

15-race maiden who has been well below form in last two starts (6f) but she's reached the frame in all four previous runs over C&D including a second in December; looks interesting back at this track and she should get a decent pace to aim at.
