Did very well after joining Gillian Boanas in spring 2022, winning four of her first seven starts for the stable, but she's been out of form for a while now and needs to turn a corner.

Form & Verdict

Has run some solid races at Ayr (two wins, 2m4f-3m, and a multitude of placed efforts) but it's difficult to draw a great deal of encouragement from her four runs (elsewhere) this season; best watched.

Form & Verdict

Kelso specialist who has slipped back to near her last winning mark; tapped for toe when placed in a slightly stronger contest there (2m6f Class 3, heavy) recently and placed on her only previous visit to Ayr (2m5f); interesting with this extra yardage potentially helpful.

Carlisle winner (2m mares' novice; evens favourite); in the mix when fifth on return to action at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) on Boxing Day; feasibly weighted and successful over this 3m trip during her point-to-point days; possibilities for an in-form yard.

Jumping lacked fluency last spring on first three chase starts and pulled up when last seen; however, she showed promise on her first two runs over fences and could have a part to play if back on song after a break.

Exploited some help from the handicapper when keeping on stoutly for narrow win at Kelso (3m2f, soft) in November but wasn't quite in same form on either subsequent outing (3m2f/3m) and today's drop back in trip is probably not ideal; wore cheekpieces last time; usual visor back on today.
