Form & Verdict

Sole success in 12 starts came at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last December, but has finished runner-up in her last two outings on turf having been stepped up to this trip; up 3lb for this return to the AW, but shouldn't be far away.

Likeable and consistent filly; got to within 4l of Aintree Grade 1 runner-up Bo Zenith at Haydock in February and it was all very straightforward in a Musselburgh handicap a month ago (2m1f, good to soft); 7lb rise sees her with top weight but she's earned it.

Visored when placed in three of her four starts since handicapping (wore blinkers on other occasion), though was well beaten by the winner when second of six at Pontefract (1m2f, good to firm) last time; makes her AW debut, but is a half-sister to a Tapeta winner so can't be dismissed in her bid to make it eighth-time lucky.

Made a successful stable debut at Redcar (1m2f, soft) in April, after a lengthy absence, and was beaten less than a length by a dual subsequent winner at Hamilton (1m3f, good to soft) in June; returns from 72 days off for this AW debut, but is proven fresh and his sire has a good record with his runners here.

Underlined how well he goes in the mud with a 7l win at Thirsk (1m4f) last week and won by even further at Ripon (1m6f, heavy) on Thursday; effectively another 6lb higher if turned out again but it's offset by his rider's claim and he'll make a bold bid if coping with the quick turnaround.

Both wins came over C&D late last year and he's now 2lb lower than for the latest of those; can take a hold, so interesting to see what effect the cheekpieces will have; if it's a positive one he would be worthy of respect back down in grade.

Fair on the Flat in his prime but has a lowly mark in that sphere nowadays; ran well to a point on last month's hurdling debut at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) and might last longer on today's faster ground but others appeal more all the same.
