Back from 309 days away to win a 1m3f handicap at Carlisle (good to firm) 16 days ago with a good bit in hand; up 6lb but can deal with that, provided she can prove herself as effective on the AW.

Had nothing in hand when edging home at Ayr (1m2f, good) and was only sixth next time after a 4lb rise; cheekpieces tried last time are persevered with but he has been gelded, which may make a difference.

Her three handicap wins have all come from the front, including twice round here; back in form last Tuesday (9.7f; again didn't lead) but there's not much wiggle room off this mark and an easy 1m on quicker ground is a bare minimum now.

Two 7f AW wins (one here) early in 2021 when trained by Mark Johnston; good first run for this yard over 9.4f but beaten around 5l since, latterly in a first-time visor having been gelded; it could be that 1m4f was too far, but he's not wildly appealing right now.
