Took advantage of a falling mark when resuming winning ways at Musselburgh (5f, good); given the narrow winning margin (a nose), a 2lb rise looks fair; should be thereabouts; stablemate of Resilience.

Progressive in 5f handicaps as 2yo, winning two of six attempts (good and good to soft); soft ground perhaps too testing on return but ran better on good to firm at Redcar when beaten 3l; possibilities.

Just modest form in one run for Michael Bell as a 2yo; made all to win a 6f fillies' maiden in good style on her stable debut at Ayr in May; stiff task in Listed company two weeks ago; well drawn for her handicap debut and there should be more to come.
