Gained a first AW win over C&D in November; hasn't built on that from her revised mark since and can be too keen in her races, as seen when a beaten favourite here last week behind Philly's Hope; might need a bit more relief from the assessor and will certainly need to settle better this time.

Made it 14th time lucky here nine days ago when scoring over this trip in handicap for horses who hadn't been placed on their last start; that continued a largely progressive sequence of runs over the winter here but has been hit with 7lb rise; likes to race close enough to pace so low draw should be a help; obvious chance.
