Came with a strong run from off the pace to win a 7f handicap at Newcastle two weeks ago, form franked by the runner-up since; 2lb rise manageable if the outside draw doesn't prove too big a hindrance.

Runner-up at Newcastle (1m, AW) last month then won comfortably here (1m1f, good) three weeks ago; the drop back in trip seems a likely negative but she went close over 7f on AW in February and is entitled to respect given how well she took to the course last time on her first visit here.
