Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden whose bumper form included a placed effort in Listed grade; went very close at Plumpton (2m4f, good; handicap debut) on penultimate start and ran creditably when blinkers were enlisted for the mares final at Newbury on latest (2m4f, soft); leading claims, with form which is miles better than that of most of her rivals.

She was beginning to look exposed but proved well suited by the big-field scenario when cruising to victory in a mares' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) in March; has also won on good ground; she's up 8lb now back against males but is entitled to respect given her Newbury dominance.

Burdened with a double penalty when behind Smiling Getaway and Lilting Verse last time at Ludlow on soft ground that probably wasn't ideal; had previously finished a clear second behind the well-touted Shanagh Bob at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) and, armed with plenty of experience, she could go well at a price.
