Four wins last summer and 13lb lower than for the most recent; signs of encouragement when beaten 3l into fifth of 13 at Catterick (7f, good to firm) last month, but took a step backwards at Thirsk (7f, good to firm) last time; goes on most ground, but not quite sure what to expect.

Well held at Leicester (1m, good to firm) last time, but a return to an easier surface may help (twice placed on soft ground in the spring) and is back off the same mark as when gaining her sole win at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW: first-time visor) in March; interesting.
