Both wins at 5f on stiff tracks on good to firm, most recently in a Beverley seller in May, and has finished strongly in two handicap runs there since (with and without a hood); can be involved with the likely strong pace in her favour.

Her three wins have come over 5f on fast ground; little encouragement in three runs for new yard and hard to recommend despite her reduced mark.

Front-running wins over 6f on AW as 2yo, then on reappearance at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) when holding Tilly The Filly and Tiberio Smile at bay; caught a tartar back over 5f on Newcastle AW 12 days ago but has a good run in him returned to turf.

Two wins and four places from 18 starts for David O'Meara; unplaced on AW on last three starts; probably a little more effective on turf, but lacks the advantage of a recent outing.

Form & Verdict

Raced over 6f and further, quite impressive on debut as 2yo and running his best race in handicaps when taking a late third after getting blocked in his run at Redcar 17 days ago (6f, good to firm); could well have more to offer in a truly run race over a stiff 5f.

Little between her and Iur Cinn Tra on their Nottingham run in April (5f, good to firm); didn't get the best of runs at Redcar next time but ran flat there in May which leaves her with something to prove.

Form & Verdict

Made running for 5f Redcar novice win in May 2021 before highly tried at Royal Ascot; non-runner many times since and has faded in two AW handicaps; however, they were after a layoff each time, the latest 15 days ago, and he should be open to some improvement back on turf.

Has a significant weights turnaround with Iur Cinn Tra on their Nottingham run in April (5f, good to firm) but hasn't been overly convincing since and his recent fourth over 6f at Doncaster came from the front; is worth another go back at 5f but needs more.

Inconsistent ten-race maiden but he was a creditable third under a positive ride at Ripon (5f, good to soft) two weeks ago; switches back to quicker conditions but he's 1lb lower than last time and has claims if he can back that up.
