Form & Verdict

Sole runner on the card for William Haggas, who has a 46% strike-rate at Thirsk in last five seasons; leading form contender to boot, having shown clear promise in fillies' maiden at Ascot (5f, soft) where she kept on for third; should be suited by this longer trip; strongly respected.

Made it 2-8 for William Haggas when winning a nursery at Nottingham (5f, heavy) 16 days ago; subsequently sold for 18,000gns; she has something to find now up in grade on her stable debut but she's unexposed in testing conditions and is not ruled out.
