Form & Verdict

Won twice over 8.6f at Wolverhampton in December; started 2023 with two good runner-up efforts at about 1m2f and shaped well back on turf when third over C&D (good to firm) 12 days ago, keeping on well after meeting trouble; going softer than good would be an unknown but she looks on a workable mark.
