Best run was second time out when runner-up at Chepstow (5f, good to firm) in May; modest first effort after being gelded at Windsor a month ago and now goes into nurseries with a bit to prove; hood a first.

Debut winner over Bath's 5f in early May but only fourth under a penalty back there three weeks later and absent since; Benoit De La Sayette's claim eases a fairly tough mark but others appeal more.

Went close at Nottingham (5f, good) but then failed to justify favouritism in a four-runner nursery at Pontefract, albeit behind an unexposed winner and over 6f; certainly needs respecting.

Her Carlisle second (5f, good to firm) reads well and it was always going to be tough in the Super Sprint, as her odds of 25-1 implied; that penultimate effort entitles her to go well off this mark.

Plenty of promise when fourth on debut at Salisbury (6f, good), travelling strongly in front before weakening late on; the drop in trip could well suit and leading stable's juveniles remain in good form; looks the one to beat.
