Form & Verdict

Best of three 2yo starts when third of nine in a Ripon novice (1m, good to firm) but it's been hard work since returning in handicaps in the spring and cheekpieces made little difference when fifth of eight here (8.5f, good to firm) last month; blinkers now given a go and enough to prove.

She was having just her second attempt over this trip when winning a C&D handicap last month, poaching enough of a lead in the final furlong to hold off the fast-finishing second; she'll need more to defy a small weights rise in a better race but that's not out of the question given her 2022 best.
