Displayed improvement and went down fighting when second on recent nursery debut at Kempton (7f); very closely matched with Drum Brae Boy on that form, and has scope for further progress; a player.

Has form figures of 2121 at Newcastle in her last four starts and she raised her form to a new level with her smooth success over 6f on her reappearance last month; up 7lb but AW record now stands at 4-11 and she's a big payer again on this return to Polytrack.

Behind Bella Kopella and Drum Brae Boy when keeping-on fourth on recent nursery debut at Kempton (7f) but is slightly better off at the weights with both of those here and may be seen to better effect on the stiffer track.

Gets away with this trip but it's easy to argue 7f suits ideally; pulled hard on heavy ground last time and is better than that but he'd been turned over as favourite three times on the spin previously and there's little room for manoeuvre off this mark.
