Beaten just under 7l when third on her 6f Nottingham debut (good to firm) 46 days ago but that race looks a bit stronger now than it did at the time and she's open to progress.

Showed fairly useful form on turf in her first season last year and remains open to further progress, having raced only five times in total; possibilities with AW reappearance (Listed) under her belt.

Unraced at two; won a 7f novice at Salisbury on soft ground last summer before placed efforts in a Thirsk novice and a Pontefract handicap (1m); should have better to come this year but she's pitched into a strong race for her reappearance; stable have more obvious claims with Many Tears.

Her three seconds (from five starts) make her the clear pick on form, including from 7f/1m on Polytrack; however, she's been a beaten favourite on last four outings and ran poorly when 4-9 at Ayr (6f, good) in August on latest; tried in cheekpieces that day and now has blinkers.

Half-brother to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Halfway To Heaven; fair form when third on 7f Dundalk debut in April but well held on soft ground at Limerick later in the month; subsequently left Paddy Twomey (same owner) and gelded; hooded first time; retains potential.
