Won a novice at Bath in August and getting up late on in a six-runner race at Ascot (good to firm) on handicap debut was much better form, both over 1m2f; has stamina in the pedigree but settling her is not straightforward; either way, major improvement is needed at 1m4f on this hat-trick bid.

Won at Ffos Las (1m2f, good to soft) last August on her third start and travelled well before weakening into third on handicap debut at Newbury (1m4f, soft) the following month; this very lightly raced filly brings potential to her 4yo campaign, especially now back down to 1m2f; key player.

Promising here on debut and went close in another novice at Bath (strong at the finish) next time; 4-5 and went on after halfway when winning well in a six-runner maiden at Ffos Las (good to soft) three weeks later; shapes as if move up to 1m4f will help with further improvement, so should go well.

Made it tenth-time lucky when narrowly beating a subsequent winner in a maiden here (7f) last time; more needed back in a handicap, but he finished second from 2lb higher on turf last summer and stepping back up another furlong shouldn't be an issue; each-way claims.

Mixed bag to date, latterly finishing well held on slow turf after hanging right-handed; owes his opening mark to his 200-1 Leicester third and his profile isn't the most convincing.
