Eight-race maiden who faded into a well-held sixth of ten in a 2m4f handicap here (good to soft; 10-1) 19 days ago; mark is sliding but he needs to significantly raise his game and not sure this step up to 3m will suit.

Won a five-runner affair at Newcastle (3m; from a 4lb lower mark in first-time blinkers) in February, and despite finishing sixth of nine, wasn't beaten all that far over C&D next time; low-key latest (never travelling) so evidently has something to prove.

Posted two very respectable efforts in February (2m6f, good/2m4f, heavy) but dropped out rather tamely at Sedgefield (3m3f, good to soft) three weeks ago and is now 0-10 over hurdles; others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict
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.
