Has improved on AW for this yard and transferred that back to turf when eyecatching fourth at Chester (10.3f, soft) last month; went close over 1m4f two starts ago and Ian Williams and Alice Stevens won this last year; player if handling the ground (has shown promise on good, unraced on faster).

She's just 2lb higher than when winning a competitive handicap at Ayr (1m2f, good) last September and could improve for her fair reappearance run here (10.2f, good to firm); today's first crack at 1m4f is worth a go and Serena Brotherton is a good booking; one to be interested in.
