Two course wins (7f-1m) and reasonably competitive at this level on the AW last winter; struggled at Bath on Good Friday though and offered little returning from a break at Sandown (also over 1m2f) a fortnight ago; drops back in trip; one of five for Tony Carroll.

Tapped into new-found reserves of stamina of late, going close twice over 7f before another good run upped to 1m at Brighton three weeks ago; fully effective on slow ground but remains to be seen if she needs a stiff test over 1m on this ground.

Form & Verdict

Still lightly raced (0-8) and has shown more than enough to suggest that she's capable of winning at this level; runner-up on both previous visits to Brighton, including latterly when just held by a bang-in-form rival (Voodoo Ray third); should be thereabouts.

Best to forgive latest effort when all over the place at Brighton eight days ago (had run well there previously); his narrow defeat at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) in June reads well in the context of this race and he looks one of the likelier winners from his good draw.

Struggled in his first four starts but, having been gelded, he was runner-up in handicaps at Lingfield (6f, AW) and Brighton (6f, good to firm) in his two runs since; made late headway in the latter after suffering interference at the start, so it looked an encouraging run and opened up the possibility that 7f could suit; well capable of a leading role.
