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.

Dual good-ground winner (7f/1m); has run to a similar level in three of his last five starts, including over C&D (good to soft) latest when collared late on after trying to make all; should be competitive.

0-4; best effort for Alan Berry looks an unreliable piece of form; well beaten over 6f here (handicap/stable debut) most recently; not solid.

Still seeking his first win (0-20) but has been placed in three of his last four starts, including when a beaten favourite - third to today's rival Chinese Spirit - at Musselburgh (1m) last week; previous Carlisle form figures read 23, and he'll surely strike eventually; a possible.

Five-race maiden; not an immediate hit in handicaps, beaten about 11l here (6f) on latest occasion; however, first-time headgear looks a possible source of improvement.

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.
