Form & Verdict

6f AW winner at two; made a most promising reappearance in a hot York handicap last month and confirmed herself an improved performer when skipping clear of seven rivals at Hamilton last week (6f, good to soft); looks well in under a penalty and remains capable of better; effective on good to firm as a 2yo.

Progressive filly who has done particularly well at the Newmarket tracks since last July, winning four times, most recently in Listed event (6f, good to soft) on seasonal debut 11 days ago; not disgraced in both York runs; well down this pack on ratings but could well improve further.

Has not won for over a year and below best on last three starts (closely matched with Digital on latest Haydock form); handles soft but trainer could have better prospects with Count D'orsay.

Two wins for Tim Easterby (6f, good) and ran creditably in her first two starts for this yard, but didn't seem to take to the AW when well held at Chelmsford (7f) last November; 2lb below her last winning mark and worth a market check back from seven months off.
