Having dropped a long way in the weights she returned to winning ways at Lingfield last month (1m; well backed), having plenty up her sleeve at the finish; only third in a classified event back at Lingfield 11 days ago but she didn't look suited by dropping back to 7f; big player at a track she has won at in the past.

Three turf wins last year, the latest (Epsom 1m2f, soft) off mark 6lb higher than today's; out of form on AW this year but her sixth at Chelmsford (1m) last time was a step back in the right direction and this move back up in trip is sure to suit; interesting.

Probably wasn't suited by dropping back in trip at Windsor last time (1m2f, heavy) after winning in a determined manner there (1m4f, soft) a week prior; no obvious issue with AW, even though his better synthetics efforts have come elsewhere at Kempton and Chelmsford; dangerous to dismiss.
