Three-time course winner (2m6f, good-soft) under Joanna Walton, the latest two starts ago; not quite at her best when fourth here (2m6f, good) since but it was still a lot better than most of these managed last time out and there's every chance she'll stay this far; respected.

Made stable debut at Kelso (2m6f, good to soft) recently and his 21l third of nine wasn't a bad performance given that he raced freely; today's drop back in trip can help but he could do with settling better if he's break his duck under rules at the 18th time of asking.
