Justified support with her narrow success at Ascot (2m7f, good) in November; well held on soft ground in last two runs but this return to forecast quicker conditions looks a positive and she's now 1lb lower than for last win; dangerous if she can get back on track.

Put his stamina to good use when keeping on best in what turned out to be a fairly stern test over about 2m4f at Wetherby (soft; had wind op soon afterwards) in January; sure to be suited by today's move back up in trip but a 4lb rise might be enough to find him out in this stronger race.
