A combination of new cheekpieces and the return to a staying distance (just under 3m; soft/heavy) has triggered a return to form in going back-to-back in handicap chases for mares; has gone up 5lb for the latest and that perhaps didn't take a great deal of winning with her two rivals hindered by their jumping; should give her running nonetheless.
