Came good at seventh attempt, making smooth headway from the rear to win readily by over 4l over C&D (good to soft) nine days ago; might not be seen to quite the same effect on today's drier ground but still commands respect under 6lb penalty.

The fitting of blinkers and switch to front-running has helped over C&D lately; was allowed her own way when springing a surprise off 4lb lower in June, though, and this is deeper than the handicap in which she had Alice Kitty just behind latest.

Generally consistent since coming over from Ireland, latterly in the cheekpieces; this is deeper than the C&D handicap she contested last time, though, and she's some way down the pecking order.

Recent efforts not inspiring, but she has dropped 6lb lower than when making a successful return in May last year and the booking of Simon Walker suggests connections mean business; blinkers (only used once before over hurdles in September 2021) make a return; interesting.
