Won at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) in July and followed up at Chepstow (1m2f, good to soft) before a good second at Newbury (1m2f, heavy); this 3yo has won four of her ten starts and could still have more to offer, provided today's expected return to better ground isn't an issue.

Kept it low key in two juvenile runs but appears to have come on over the winter as he showed more at Kempton last month (1m) when making a forward move from off the pace in the straight; can improve again now handicapping.

Form & Verdict

Showed potential on first two starts as 2yo, over 7f at Newmarket and over C&D, keeping on steadily each time, but his March return at Southwell was a little deflating and he now goes in cheekpieces on handicap debut; can be given the benefit of the doubt for now.

Similar level of form in his first four starts, including when third of eight in first-time cheekpieces (now removed) on handicap debut at Southwell (1m, AW) 15 days ago; however, neither his pedigree nor the way he performed there suggests he will improve for this longer trip.

Made an encouraging start to his career when fifth at Newmarket in October (7f, good); disappointing on the face of it when only third at Lingfield the following month but the winner has won both handicap runs since; gelded since; should be more in the locker.

0-11 but he's on a reduced mark and was a creditable third at Wolverhampton (9.4f, Tapeta) last time; shaped as though this drop back to 1m could suit that day and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Bunny-hopped at the start on latest outing and never in the hunt but did well to get as close as she did over C&D previously when not getting the best of runs; hard to know whether fitting blinkers will help but current mark not beyond her.
