No more than moderate efforts when third here and sixth on her Worcester handicap debut but both of those good enough to give her a shout, especially if going up in trip helps (second in an Irish point).

Last time's Uttoxeter handicap third (2m) was about the form equal of the summer's Bangor maiden success at nearer to 2m4f, for all she didn't settle; not evidently as much in hand of her mark as some of these.

Now 4-4 in handicaps after dominating throughout at Doncaster (2m, heavy), proving 10l superior to Spit Spot; a further 8lb rise means she's gone up a total of 36lb but she's on a roll and a better mare now than when she last tried 2m4f.
