Dual C&D winner last March, latterly in this very race off a 13lb higher mark; the fact she's back down the weights tells its own story but returning here might trigger a response; too well-in to ignore.

Difficult to quantify her form in two points this winter; debatable whether she retains peak ability aged 12 but the return to Exeter is a plus, being 2-3 over C&D; those two wins came off higher marks in March 2022.

Came clear to win a 3m1f soft-ground chase at Warwick in January (2lb lower; first-time cheekpieces) but it's all gone pear shaped in the meantime; perhaps another change of headgear will work the oracle but it's not hard to have doubts.
