Three wins this season and won at Listowel and Bellewstown a week apart lately over approx 1m; however, her 7lb penalty brings her 4lb above new mark, so is theoretically disadvantaged.

Off the mark at Dundalk (7f) in March, didn't seem to get home over same trip back on turf at Cork recently; step up to 1m raises stamina concerns although remains on a competitive mark and Billy Lee takes over.

Form & Verdict

Had shown precious little until much improved (from 7lb out of handicap) last month under forcing tactics in Gowran handicap over extended 1m1f, only caught well inside final furlong (soft); drop back to 1m could suit and major chance of going one better if handling this quicker ground.
