Form & Verdict

Lacked the pace to land any sort of blow on her handicap debut at Nottingham (1m, good to firm); the dam won over 1m4f and she may need to go that far.

Won a 0-60 over 1m here (good) last season, when 3lb lower; bettered that in defeat back here next time but has gone backwards since, all on ground slower than good; drying conditions may help but she has a bit to prove.

Half-sister to two useful winners and appeared to appreciate the soft ground when fending off a subsequent winner at Windsor (1m; 3lb lower); with rain about she's an obvious contender.

Progressed well this year, with two soft-ground wins to her name (one over C&D), and showed this mark is within range last time, when drying conditions wouldn't have been ideal; warrants respect.

Won twice in the autumn, latterly over 7f on Polytrack at Kempton, and began this year with three good runs in January (7f-1m); not seen for 11 weeks, though, and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

0-10 but was running well until a slow start had him on the back foot at Chepstow (1m, good to firm); was 6-4 favourite that day and needs considering here.

The addition of cheekpieces and a switch to front-running tactics paid dividends when making all over 1m here last October; at least as good in two runs last month, latterly chasing home a progressive one at Brighton 12 days ago; should go well.
