Has improved to the tune of 24lb this year, winning three of her five starts on turf, including the 5f Rockingham Handicap at this venue; deserves a Group 3 shot but faces a stiff task as one of only runners with an official rating below 100.

Smart first-season campaign a Group 3 over C&D; not quite the force she promised to be as a juvenile, though she did well to beat subsequent Group 2 winner Ladies Church in a Listed race at Cork; too keen in the Commonwealth Cup; beaten favourite in a Listed race at Naas last time; second-string here for Ger Lyons

Progressive juvenile campaign ended with victory in the Mill Reef on good ground; best efforts this season when third at Haydock (Group 2) in May and at Deauville (Group 3) last month; in between, finished a couple of places behind a below-par Go Bears Go in the Commonwealth Cup; will need to be at the very top of his form to reach the money.

Form & Verdict

Deserved his C&D Listed win last October; prior to that, placed in three Pattern events, including second to Gustavus Weston in this event; resumed in pleasing fashion with narrow Listed win at Cork; disappointing in C&D Group 2 Greenlands Stakes in May; beaten favourite in C&D Listed race won by Teresa Mendoza six weeks ago; should be thereabouts if restored to best.

Very smart juvenile last year, when particularly effective at this venue;, winning a 5f Listed event, a 6f Group 3 races, and second to Go Bears Go, in Group 2 Railway Stakes; ended the season with a fine second in the Middle Park (Go Bears Go, fourth); should be better for his comeback over 5f here last month; capable of a big run

Had very smart 6f form as 2yo, notably Group 1 Middle Park second on quick ground; restricted 3yo campaign last year when well below that level, last in Qipco Sprint at Ascot when last seen in October; tongue tie now tried on seasonal return but hard to assess and 5f on good ground may not be ideal.
