Major 1m5f handicap winner last term and better form this season, including when getting up in the final strides in 1m4f Listed race at Cork and taking fifth of 18 in handicap at Royal Ascot; the latter was her first run on good to firm and she did well considering the trouble she met weaving her way through from the back; it is needed (she carries a penalty) but she still looks capable of better.

Likeable handicapper last term, three wins including Galway festival handicap over this trip and narrowly denied in valuable Haydock contest over 1m6f; poor run in Listed event at Naas in October may have been one too many and may well resume progress this year.

Looked quite exposed starting out last season but, after winning Galway festival handicap off 66, finished the campaign with a mark of 99; placed in Curragh Group 3 over 2m and made the frame in Naas Listed contest over 1m4f; has tended to need a run after previous absences.
