Gained narrow wins in a Brighton maiden (6f, good to firm) and a Carlisle novice (6f, good to soft) last year and put up her best effort when fourth of 27 in a valuable sales race at Newmarket (6f, good to soft); well held in all three handicaps, though, including on her Carlisle return (6f, good to soft) a fortnight ago; enough to prove.

J: Alistair Rawlinson

0-3 for current stable and 0-18 overall; however, looks attractively treated on some of his form, including creditable third off 3lb higher over C&D in July; first win is not out of the question.

This is just his third start for Mick Appleby, who does well with recruits from other yards, however, he made it 0-17 when fourth of seven at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) ten days ago and needs to raise his game.

0-16; the pick of his form would entitle him to consideration but his inconsistency is a concern; supported when beaten 7l on debut for this trainer at Thirsk (6f, good) latest; visor goes on (has worn blinkers and cheekpieces); more needed.
