Chased home Seven Pockets on her Wolverhampton debut (9.5f, Tapeta) early last month before going on to record an emphatic 4l success at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) 16 days later; longer trip should suit on breeding, but that latest race may have taken little winning (main market rival ran poorly) and her penalty means she is no better off with her old rival.

3-15 over hurdles, most notably coming from off the pace to win a 15-runner series final at Haydock (3m, good to soft; 6lb higher today) in April; surged back to that form when third of nine here (2m5f, soft) on latest start, catching the eye big time with the way he came from a most unpromising position; back up 2lb but also 3f in trip, which will surely suit him.

Confirmed debut promise when scoring over 9.5f at Wolverhampton in December; her three closest pursuers on that occasion have won a combined five times since so there's nothing wrong with the form; looks capable of defying a penalty with further progress highly likely.

0-6 for new stable this year and now 0-20 overall, but he did shape better than the bare result when third at Southwell (1m; started slowly; rider dropped whip) last time; capable of going close if things fall his way.
