Form & Verdict

Well beaten in three AW novices over 7f/1m but showed a deal of improvement for the step up in trip and application of a tongue-tie when an impressive winner on handicap debut here (1m4f) on Saturday; 6lb penalty not a major issue but given how well she saw out the trip this drop back in distance may not be ideal and this is a quick turnaround.

Prolific winner (7-13 on Tapeta) who switches to a visor from cheekpieces having twice finished held off her career-high mark last month; this trip's as far as she wants in this company and she needs to find a bit more for the new form of headgear.
