Cheekpieces were helping until fading out of the picture at Newcastle (1m) ten days ago; beat Eagle Eyed Freddie the time before at Southwell (1m) but she can be keen and was well held here on her previous attempt at 1m2f.

Below his recent best at Kempton (1m3f) on Wednesday but was third for an eighth time over 1m there the run before; however, that's probably his trip and he's looking hard to win with.

Won off this mark at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last November but was out of sorts in final two runs for David Simcock and she finished down the field over C&D (behind Ice Shadow) on her stable debut last month; that was after a break but she's not easy to predict and is now 1-23.

Returned from nine months off to win a 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford (AW) in November; below form on last two outings and this is her first run since sold out of David Simcock's for 2,000gns in early February; only her fifth turf start and she does have some turf form on softer than good.
