Form & Verdict

Built on her debut when quite a comfortable winner of a novice over the extended 7f at Beverley 12 days ago; that was run on officially good to firm but there was heavy rain during the race and the going was changed to good to soft after the next; open to improvement and a mark in the mid-70s looks manageable.

Two turf wins over further last season; has shown promise over 6f (soft) and she ran well on her return to action here (7f) 11 days ago; should remain competitive.

Won two in a row on turf (7f/7.4f) last July; mixed form in six subsequent runs but she had a tough task in a Listed event at Newmarket (6f, heavy) when last seen in November; now switches to AW after a break but she still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form and needs watching in market.

Fair form when reaching the frame on all three starts (good/good to firm); didn't improve for the step up to 7f when third at Salisbury last time but still early days and he has the assistance of Oisin Murphy for this nursery debut.

Nicely bred colt who could only manage a midfield finish on his 6f course debut (good to firm) but different proposition on AW at Lingfield next time, winning a 6f novice with a degree of comfort; likely capable of better again now stepping up to 7f for nursery debut.

Appreciated the step up to 7f when winning his maiden at Musselburgh and appeared to give his running on nursery debut at Leicester, going down by 2l after racing prominently; each-way claims now upped to 1m.

Always well positioned in an ordinary 0-65 handicap when scrambling home on her 7f reappearance here this month; there can't be any complaints about a 2lb rise but she is not sure to stay this longer trip judged on pedigree.
