Form & Verdict

No match for the winners when runner-up in novice events at Ffos Las (7.3f, good) and Chelmsford (7f, AW) the last twice but those were still positive performances and she goes handicapping off a fair mark, and with the possibility of improvement; unraced on slow ground.

Dual winner at two; kicked off last season with a fourth in the 1,000 Guineas (soft) and went on to be third in the Oaks (good to firm) and a close fifth in another Group 1 (1m2f Nassau, soft); all that adds up to strong form credentials back in a Group 2 and it's unlikely that dropping back in distance will be a great issue.

Second of 18 in nursery at York's Ebor meeting (6f, good) last month and, although she was beaten 7l when third behind a convincing winner at Doncaster (6.5f, good) last week, it was still a fair performance; every chance she'll stay this far and she could be thereabouts; unraced on slow ground.

Second of three when upped to 1m at Doncaster (1m, good) last month and again made the running and went close when second of 11 at Thirsk (1m, good) last time; today's shorter trip could be a positive and she can make another bold bid; likely player; fair run on good to soft on debut.

No impact when fifth of ten in first-time cheekpieces (retained) on her nursery debut at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) a fortnight ago but she kept on well having been wide into the straight and this step up in trip looks a firm positive; in top hands and figures highly in calculations.
