Form & Verdict

Came up a little short in the Lingfield Oaks Trial; progressive otherwise, including wins over 1m and 1m2f on AW/soft; ran well in fillies' handicap at Goodwood (1m4f, good to firm; finished second) most recently; raised 2lb but Harry Davies takes off a useful 3lb; solid chance.

Drops back slightly in grade, having faced a tough task in Royal Ascot handicap (well held) last month; scored easily at Newbury (1m2f, good; handicap debut) the time before and that form has worked out well; may still have more to offer.

Won in fine style at Newbury (1m2f, good) last May and continued to progress when runner-up three times in the second half of the year (1m4f-1m6f, good to soft/soft); absent since tailed off in AW Listed race last November but not discounted on her reappearance.

Listed limitations have been shown up at Chester (remote second) and Longchamp (last of seven) since her clearcut success in Doncaster handicap (1m2f, soft) on reappearance; on a tougher mark now but the drop back to this level looks a positive.

Sole 4yo in the field; progressive form last term included wins in soft-ground maiden and AW handicap, both over 1m4f; has failed to shine in two runs this season but she's in excellent hands and a revival is far from impossible; trainer has a respectable record in this contest.

2022 campaign included 1m4f wins in a soft-ground maiden and AW handicap, followed by a close fourth when tried over 1m6f; latest start was more like it again, when making most for a respectable fourth of eight at this track (1m4f); going back up in trip looks in order but 2m is something new.

Perhaps a tad flattered by her wide-margin success in the Lillie Langtry at Glorious Goodwood (1m6f), bearing in mind she received a good front-running ride and the ground was heavy; however, looks a big player if the form is repeated and she's still unexposed at this sort of trip.

Completed a quickfire hat-trick last month, which means she's 3-3 since handicapping and switched to turf; won well each time, most recently at Windsor (11.5f, good to firm; Class 5); now upped two grades off a much sterner mark but could well progress further; has to be feared.
