Form & Verdict
Made all to land a Chelmsford handicap (first-time visor) last month on her first run for David Evans; only third over C&D 18 days ago but she had to switch her path at a crucial stage and almost certainly remains in top form; one to consider.

All eight wins on the AW including two over 6f here, the latest under Liam Wright in March; still 3lb higher and a suspicion that the extra furlong suits him better these days; stable also runs I'm Mable.

Eighth AW success when scoring narrowly under Liam Wright over C&D in March and another good run at Wolverhampton when just behind Alablaq; same mark as then and he's ideally drawn for one who likes to be handy.

Form & Verdict
Gone off the boil since winning at Newcastle in December but he's slipping back down the weights and he should find this being run to suit; David Probert booked and he is capable of a big run.
