2-3 since switched to handicaps, and the form of last month's Ludlow success (2m5f, good to soft) has recently been well advertised by the close second; moves up in trip today; could easily have more to offer.

Would have found the ground too soft when pulled up in this last year after a similar break; can be quirky and wore cheekpieces and a visor (together with tongue-tie) when close up on her final two runs; wears just a tongue-tie this time and has a big run in her off this mark.
