Form & Verdict

Rapid improver once switched to handicaps last season, ending her campaign with 7f wins at Carlisle (twice) and Redcar; style of racing making it hard for the assessor to get her measure; still looks well treated ahead of her return but she is yet to tackle ground slower than good; dangerous if the going is suitable.
