Has done well for her new yard this season, winning competitive 6f handicaps at Glorious Goodwood and Chepstow; 7f might have stretched her stamina at Doncaster last time; will need another personal best to return to winning ways but it's certainly possible.

The winner of three of her seven races (6f, twice on good to firm, once on AW); still feasibly handicapped on June's Nottingham win and the drop to 5f didn't seem to suit her last time; below par in one run on good to soft so underfoot conditions could prove an issue.
