Form & Verdict

Narrowly made all in a Yarmouth maiden (1m1f, good to soft) last September on second start; ran creditably next time but soundly beaten in this season's three handicaps; tongue tied all starts, plus cheekpieces on last two; moving up from about 1m4f needs to make a significant difference.

Two Flat wins for another yard, at 1m1f (good to soft) and 1m6f (good to firm); also showed some promise in two hurdles for Alice Haynes but left that yard for 6,500gns and, having raced freely, she dropped out on recent handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft); this shorter trip looks a good move but would prefer drier ground.

Both wins on turf, latest over 1m6f in July; can be opposed on the balance of subsequent form (Flat/hurdles) and also bearing in mind the return to AW presents a question mark.

Two bits of modest form from her four starts, including when fifth of six on handicap debut here (1m4f, good to firm; made most) last time; clearly needs to improve on that but this longer trip should suit.

Limited on the Flat despite threatening a couple of times; never out of the first two in first four hurdle runs and she had a tough task from out the weights at Cheltenham last month; still has potential in this sphere and she's not ruled out back in calmer waters at this new trip; her Ludlow win came at 2m (good) but she looked a strong stayer on the Flat.

Limited on the Flat despite threatening a couple of times; never out of the first two in four hurdles, winning decisively on good ground at Ludlow before finishing a clear second on good to soft at Fakenham (four ran); this represents a stiff task on handicap debut from 3lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Best runs in handicaps came when cheekpieces went on two and three starts back; each-way chance on that form at about 1m3f and the visor tried on latest start (fair fourth on good to firm) is quickly dispensed with; cheekpieces return and there's stamina on the dam's side.
