Runner-up in first-time cheekpieces at Pontefract (5f, good) in June; has failed to kick on positively, yet did show plenty of speed at Beverley (5f, soft; sixth of 12) latest, which is a handy asset for Musselburgh; possibly inconvenienced by a low draw.

Slipped to a more manageable mark and seemingly suited by recent return to 5f; close third (Never Dark fourth, Prospect fifth) at Ayr on penultimate start before hitting the target at Hamilton (5f, good to soft) subsequently; 3lb rise looks no barrier to success from a handy stands' side draw.

Form & Verdict

Given a fine ride when produced late to score at Newcastle (5f; from a 4lb lower mark) in September, but denied a clear run in both subsequent starts; has to be held up and, while effective here, will always require that vital ingredient of in-running luck; stablemate of Primo's Comet.

All four wins have been at 5f but she was a creditable second behind Dazy Mazy over this trip at Doncaster 13 days ago; has a 6lb swing in the weights with her old rival and she should be in the mix again; has won on soft and fast ground.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at 11th attempt in a 5f fillies' novice at Thirsk (soft) four weeks ago; although the runner-up (Proclivity) went on to score at Redcar the following day, the worth of the form is questionable; 3lb higher than for last handicap run, so seemingly needs more.

All six C&D wins on good, including when taking a four-runner Class 4 contest (11-8 favourite; from a 2lb lower mark) in July; given a short break since a modest Sandown effort; has to bounce back from that with these forecast softer conditions the main concern; stablemate of Rory.

Won twice as a juvenile (6f) for Richard Hannon but hasn't shown much since returning from a near three-year hiatus; no joy post wind surgery at Ayr, and the intervention of headgear is sought on fifth start for Linda Perratt; safe to look elsewhere.
