Struggled in novice events last year; posted a bigger effort (fourth over 6f) dropped to classified level at Wolverhampton on reappearance, faring best of those who came from rear; open to further progress in this grade and should certainly win races judged on breeding (related to several winners for this yard); interesting.

Has been running at sprint trips since 7f debut but gave a better account back at the latter trip here when keeping on steadily, albeit well positioned throughout in a race that wasn't a strong test at the trip; has many smart sprinters in her pedigree and suitability of a 1m has to be proved.
