Disappointing favourite in Carlisle maiden last month, taking record to 0-5; however, consistent otherwise and may bounce back; switch to handicap level may suit and not written off.

Flat winner on good ground and was pretty useful; had three runs over hurdles, much the best when fourth at Hereford (2m, soft); she was beaten 23l but the front two have since won good handicaps at Sandown and Cheltenham; has her ground for handicap debut and she should be very well treated given Flat ability.

Came from off the pace to win on the other course here (1m, good) in May and showed she's tactically versatile with a comfortable all-the-way success at Sandown (1m2f, good; beat Serengeti Sunset) two weeks ago; this in-form filly may have even more to offer; shortlisted.

Off the mark at the ninth attempt with a 22-1 win at Newmarket (1m, good) last month; again ran on from off the pace when respectable fourth of 13 at Leicester (1m, good to firm) 11 days later, having too much to do; that gave hope for this new trip but she did not help her cause by hanging.

Far from solid as she has one standout performance, namely 20-1 success in Leicester maiden (1m2f, soft), from five starts; chance partly depends on how well she responds to first-time hood.

Form & Verdict

Has a record of 1-1 over 1m2f, namely a success off 1lb higher at Windsor (soft) last October, and last two efforts (1m4f) suggest the return to this trip will prove ideal; interesting, especially with being so unexposed at the distance.

Dual 1m2f winner (fair form) for Ed Dunlop in spring 2023 when the hooded was first installed; it's been kept since but he ended 2023 Flat campaign on a low note (July) and was soundly beaten on hurdling debut at Market Rasen six weeks ago, when settling him was again a problem.
