Ran on well to make a winning reappearance in a 1m handicap at Southwell in April; fair fourth at Newmarket next time but she flopped at Musselburgh 18 days ago; quick turnaround suggests nothing sinister came to light and she still has potential; down in grade and up in trip.

Made a successful handicap debut after six months off at Southwell (1m, AW) in April, but probably put up a better effort when fourth of seven at Newmarket (1m, soft) last month; both the dam's side of her pedigree and the way she performed there suggest the extra furlong should suit.

Form & Verdict

Nicely bred filly who ran out a ready winner at Newcastle on her second 2yo start (7f); stiff task in Listed company when last seen in October; more realistic task on her return and she shapes as though she'll stay 1m.

Made a winning racecourse debut in a 7f fillies' novice at Haydock last May; cut little ice in Listed/Group 3 company afterwards but she makes her seasonal return back at a more suitable level and with her yard going well; still not fully exposed.

Form & Verdict

Three turf wins for Jessica Harrington in Ireland and she was last seen finishing second off this mark at Dundalk in October (1m); that represents a strong piece of form and she's an interesting contender for her new Irish yard (sold for 20,000gns in November); market instructive.

Often starts slowly; came from well back to win at Kempton (1m) in February; stiffer tasks since, 5lb out of the weights at Newcastle on Good Friday; has weakened on both her previous attempts at 1m2f.

Again blew the start but Mia Nicholls (on board for the first time) didn't panic and they did well to score given how slowly the race was run over C&D last week; races off just 3lb higher, but jockey claims 2lb less than last week; key player.
