Form & Verdict

Fair maiden on Flat, notably narrowly beaten in 1m1f Curragh handicap last summer (good); improving as hurdler, winning 25-runner Navan maiden in March and ran okay in the circumstances in Ascot handicap early this month when plenty keen and racing wide; still improving 4yo could have more to offer back on the Flat here and good chance of staying this longer trip.
