Form & Verdict

Inconsistent this season but ran well when third at Ayr (1m, good) 11 days ago, especially as his jockey dislocated his shoulder mid-race and couldn't give him maximum assistance; thereabouts if again on a going day; has won on soft ground.

Has struggled to get competitive over hurdles and on the Flat since winning at Brighton (1m2f) last October for Chris Gordon; has switched stables and it's possible he'll have been revived by a change of scenery, but others arrive with far less to prove.

Has failed to threaten on her first three starts (6f-1m1f) and isn't obviously well treated for this handicap debut, but she hasn't been devoid of ability and this half-sister to four winners is open to improvement.
