Form & Verdict

Only beaten half a length by a nice prospect last time out; slight surprise they haven't tried to capitalise on a mark of 77 but sets a solid standard on form and she handles cut in the ground.

Consistent sort who won a Curragh maiden in July and has held her form well since; should be in the mix again and possible that this new trip could yield some improvement.

Has now had 21 chances to lose her maiden tag but she went close on her penultimate start when returned to this trip; couldn't build on that over 1m last time though and needs a career best to land this.
