Form & Verdict

Looked exposed at the end of her 2yo campaign but she's found another gear this year, making all to win an AW novice in March and adding a C&D handicap (soft) 17 days ago in determined fashion; another step up the ladder with an easy win at Haydock on Thursday and although her penalty asks a stiffer question, she has to command serious respect from a good draw.

Form & Verdict

Came to hand early last spring, winning at Southwell on debut and adding the Lily Agnes at this track last May; quiet return to action last month (soft ground) but showed she had trained on with a last-gasp success at Wolverhampton (6f) 12 days ago; 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another prominent showing.

She hasn't recaptured her best since returning to the AW in October; Rossa Ryan is a notable booking but there are risks attached now she's dropping back to 5f.

Good chance on her spring form but she's gone off the boil more recently; continues to drop in the weights but others look safer.

Form & Verdict

Had wind surgery after her third start and she showed the benefit when running away with a 6f novice at Chelmsford in October (tongue-tied for the first time); hit with an 8lb rise for that but she could well have more to come this year; lower draw would have been preferable but she's on the shortlist.

Sole win came at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack) a year ago, though she seemed to stay when fourth of 11 back there (1m) ten days ago; this even longer trip asks another question of her, though, as does the outside stall.

Ended her time with Jonathan Portman with two poor runs and she was tailed off behind Radio Goo Goo over C&D on her stable debut 17 days ago; quicker ground should help but still not easily recommended.

Form & Verdict

Two comfortable 7f wins at the track last summer before a disappointing run in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes over 1m last September; down the field in the Nell Gwyn on her return and she was never going the pace over C&D 17 days ago (drawn wide; softest ground she has tackled); interesting she's being persevered with over 6f but the widest stall tempers enthusiasm.

Has looked good on a couple of occasions this year, notably at Salisbury three weeks ago when finishing her race off strongly (fastest sectional for each of the last three furlongs); wouldn't be certain to confirm the placings with Al Simmo, who was always on the sharp end that day, but still not fully exposed as a sprinter.

Well backed when readily beating seven opponents on her 2yo debut (6f, AW); no progress in three subsequent runs but she drops in class for her 3yo return and shouldn't be underestimated off a reduced mark.

Ready winner of soft-ground 6f novice at Doncaster on her reappearance; strong favourite for a C&D handicap 17 days ago but could only manage third, beaten 2l, behind Radio Goo Goo; 11lb better off with that rival today and quicker ground won't bother her; solid.
