Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten on seasonal/handicap debut in April but returned from a break with two much more encouraging runs last month, latterly when fourth in what looked a good race at Newbury (1m2f, good); drawn on the inside here and not yet fully exposed; good chance.

Form & Verdict

Five-race maiden who has been hooded for all starts and is evidently not straightforward; ran quite well from the front when fourth of six in Southwell novice (1m2f, AW) last month and probably still has potential, but there are safer and more appealing options in this line-up; handicap debut.

Has gone close first time out the previous two seasons but each time over a deal further and was very expensive to follow last year; this is tougher coming back out of handicaps and racing over shy of 1m for the first time, without the usual hood.

Last eight starts for Ralph Beckett were in cheekpieces, three of them wins and two came from the front over 1m4f on soft last summer (unraced beyond that on Flat); two soft-ground wins this year from her two novice hurdles for new yard, with latest (front-running at Catterick, raced freely) pretty useful form; competitive on AW tracks earlier on (last AW race was last June); needs to transfer her turf improvement but highly respected.

Unexposed and well-bred filly who won Nottingham novice (1m2f, good to firm) in June; managed only third of four when returned to Nottingham for last month's handicap debut but the form has been well advertised by the front two since; still has potential; respected.
