Won at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) last month on final run for Tracy Waggott and third on stable debut at Ayr (1m, good to soft) in a race that worked out well; his disappointing run at York four days later may have come too soon; could play major role on return from a three-week break.

Sister to the yard's prolific winners Al Simmo and Albeseeingyer (won this race last year) and she did her bit for the family tree when easily accounting for eight rivals in a Class 6 handicap at Redcar (7f, good) last June; ended last season with a close fourth at Leicester (behind Shark One Two; short of room in the final 100 yards) and appeals as the type to do better still as a 6yo; untried on slower than good to soft and mixed messages from her siblings with regard to ground preference.

She was having just her second attempt over this trip when winning a C&D handicap last month, poaching enough of a lead in the final furlong to hold off the fast-finishing second; she'll need more to defy a small weights rise in a better race but that's not out of the question given her 2022 best.
