Form & Verdict

Runner-up on first two starts (7f/1m, AW) before easily winning a maiden at Newcastle (1m, AW) last month; her stable continues in fine form and this unexposed 3yo brings potential to this handicap debut; she's one to consider.

Returned to form with a win when back on turf and up in trip at Redcar (1m2f, soft) recently; the way she travelled provides optimism the drop back to 1m will be okay, and she won on fast ground last year; respected.

Mostly consistent in handicaps without winning one for previous yard; well held on debut for this one but she won quite takingly at Beverley (1m, good to soft) 14 days ago, albeit at a lesser level; up 4lb to career-high mark and this will test her new-found improvement.

Won twice over 1m last season (good to firm/good to soft) and might not be far away if fully tuned up on this reappearance, but she may need to drop a few pounds in the weights before she wins again.

Hasn't progressed since winning for James Tate on her debut last July (7f, good to firm) but her stable debut fourth here (7f, good to soft) last October was pretty encouraging as she suffered a troubled passage before keeping on; now 3lb lower and she's an interesting contender.

Did well last autumn when these cheekpieces went on and she won at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; has won twice on turf and this trip may be within range, but her stamina isn't guaranteed (unraced beyond 7f) and she's going from a 0-55 into a 0-80, so could find things tough.

Progressive on AW this spring with two front-running wins (1m), and she was a solid third of six at Lingfield (1m, AW) on Wednesday; can make another bold bid if the return to turf isn't an issue (soundly beaten on her sole grass run on soft ground on her debut in 2021).
