Won Group 3 over 6f as 2yo; ran only twice in 2023, down the field in the Nell Gwyn at this meeting and, following wind surgery, she faded on her 6f handicap debut at York in July; plenty to prove after layoff.

Down the field in Group 3 Nell Gwyn (7f, good to soft) in April on sole run this season but she's had a wind op since and was a very talented 2yo last year, the highlight a Group 3 win at Ayr (6f, good); also effective on good to soft; if back on song she could be a contender on handicap debut.

Won a Group 3 at Ayr (6f, good) last September on her third start and did very well to stay on strongly for fourth of 16 under a penalty at Redcar (6f, good to soft; Listed) next time, having looked all at sea on the track; 7f promises to suit and she's an each-way possible on her return.

Three Listed/Group 3 wins to her name this year and she notched a personal best when third of 16 in the Group 1 Sprint Cup at Haydock six weeks ago; still more required if she's to resume winning ways in first-time cheekpieces but she's not dismissed lightly; unraced on extremes of going; can give trouble in the stalls but has done little wrong once under way.
