Form & Verdict
Off the mark at Ripon (1m, good) three starts ago; largely consistent otherwise this term, most recently overcoming a bad early stumble to finish third in Thirsk selling handicap (one place behind Hegemon; claimed out of Ben Haslam's yard for £8,000); should go well again.

Form & Verdict
Minor form in sprint races in the spring but should do better; this daughter of Mondialiste, who was a smart performer for her owners, looks open to major improvement now handicapping off a modest mark and upped in distance; interesting, especially if the market speaks positively.
