Form & Verdict

Made all to win a 6f handicap at Kempton last month (visored first time); reportedly unsuited by the ground when disappointing at Nottingham 17 days ago; C&D record reads -1172 and she's one to consider from a handy draw.

Record over C&D reads 11721 and she's returned to something like her best since a visor went on, winning twice and finishing second at Chelmsford last time (all 6f); might face competition for the lead but she's certainly not out of this.

Beaten favourite in a Windsor novice last April but shaped with promise; returned from 222 days off to win a Lingfield maiden (6f, AW) in November; another absence to defy but she's well drawn and the beaten horses at Lingfield offer hope that her opening mark is a good one; interesting to see how she goes in the market against some battle-hardened sprinters.
