6 yo Mare

OR: 80

Form & Verdict

Well beaten in her three qualifying runs but heavy market support coincided with significant improvement on handicap debut at Hereford (2m3f, good) on Sunday, where she pulled clear from another mare who looked ahead of her mark; should be hard to beat under 7lb penalty.
