Dropped back to 5f for her handicap debut at Nottingham (good to firm) and from a good draw she narrowly repelled Apache Star; unlikely to be much between them again but she's entitled to improve some more.

Had stalls issues as a 3yo, refusing to go in three times; progressing nicely this term, winning Class 6 handicaps at Nottingham and C&D and missing out by only a short head in hat-trick bid six weeks ago (hung left and collared by one who kept a straighter line); aversion to the stalls resurfaced at Goodwood last month; can do better but soft ground a query.

Had stalls issues as a 3yo, refusing to go in three times; progressing nicely this term, winning Class 6 handicaps at Nottingham and Leicester (5f, good or quicker) and missing out by only a short head in hat-trick bid ten days ago (hung left and collared by one who kept a straighter line); due to be 3lb higher from the weekend and still has more to come; major player.

Only win came on the AW but he was perhaps unlucky not to have won at Windsor (5f, good) 17 days ago and that effort brings him right into it.

Tackling only his third handicap when a close third over 6f here (soft), only fading late on; this drop back to 5f could work and a tongue-tie is added.
