3 yo Filly

OR: 53

Form & Verdict
Showed promise with her placed efforts here (6f) and at Bath (5.7f) in her first two runs in the spring but her form went in the wrong direction when a well-held fifth at Bath last time; still unexposed but she needs to kick on again on her handicap debut and not sure this step up to 7f will suit on pedigree.

Similar form in sprint maidens at Wolverhampton and over C&D, beating Jack Leslie and Lanzarote Sunshine when second in latter; showed plenty of speed that day and looks sure to go well again.

Form & Verdict
Has been progressive in handicaps for her new yard this season and she got off the mark (eighth attempt) when making all on the step up to 7f at Chepstow (good to firm) last month; up 7lb but her form really took off with that dominant display last time and she's a big player again back on AW.

Five-race maiden but she got much closer to the target when a front-running fourth in Kempton handicap (7f, Polytrack; 100-1) in June; needs to build on that but she's open to more progress and is a half-sister to three winners.
