Lightly raced 3yo who built upon her very encouraging seasonal/handicap debut when second at Newmarket (7f, good) last month; ideally needs to learn to settle better but still enters calculations here.

Showed some promise in her first three runs and she kicked off her handicap career with a keeping-on fifth of 14 at Sandown (1m, good; 125-1) on her return last month; that was a good effort from a wide draw and she has claims if she can build on that back in trip.
