Form & Verdict

Has form figure of 121 in 5f nurseries, the latest performance at Yarmouth (good to soft) where she held on narrowly from Lumacho who had beaten her at Chepstow earlier in September; better off with that rival on today's terms and may improve further; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Down-the-field outsider in the Queen Mary when last seen, following her Catterick debut win (5f, good); the combination of carrying top weight on softer ground and lacking recent match practice may find her out, but market support would be encouraging.
