Some respectable form on turf this summer; best to forgive latest effort (badly hampered in early stages); won over C&D last year but ran below par here two starts ago.

J: Jason Hart

T: Peter Niven

Not at the top of his game the last twice but he was progressive previously and is now 1lb lower than when a close third of 19 at York (5f, good) in July; his last two visits here have yielded a win and a near-miss and he's capable of playing a leading role if back on song.

Form & Verdict

Won four times from 5f-7f on good to firm to soft last season; not shown anything like that sort of form this time (fair effort latest) and has also shown signs of temperament (refused to race on one occasion).

Has won just one of her 34 starts but that came over C&D (good) in June and she's continued in good form since, finishing a good third over C&D most recently; this is a weak race and there's plenty to like.

Finally opened her account over C&D in June and she has kept her form well since, stumbling at the start when fourth of nine in 5f Redcar classified event 17 days ago; she's firmly in the picture back in handicap company.
