Form & Verdict

Placed in two Newmarket races at two and returned with a narrow success in an ordinary Thirsk maiden (7f, soft); outclassed in a 1,000 Guineas trial afterwards and this mark looks quite harsh on what she's achieved.

Second reserve; placed on both 2yo starts (7f, including good to firm) and won on reappearance at Thirsk (7f, soft) in April; however, down the field in a Group 3 at Newbury (7f, soft) last time and others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Stepped up on her 2yo efforts when landing a 7.5f novice at Chester last month (good); perhaps unsuited by the soft ground when down the field on her handicap debut back at Chester six weeks ago; needs a career best.

Came good in a 7.5f Chester novice (good) on her reappearance; had soft ground as an excuse there next time and straight back on track when 4l second in handicap at Goodwood (1m, good) 15 days ago; that form will need improving on but as a lightly-raced 3yo she does have the potential for better.

Steady improvement with each of her three runs this summer, finishing a close third on her handicap debut at Bath last month (1m, good); can do better but she'll need to.

Handicapped to the hilt since winning three fast-ground handicaps during early summer but she continues to run well and again gave it her all last week at Bath (1m, good); solid chance once more, though ground softer than good to soft would spell danger.

Went up 10lb for three fast-ground wins in early summer and has generally run well off her revised mark since, usually from the front; fair chance she's able to get her own way, in which case she'll be dangerous, with the drying weather in her favour.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the seventh attempt when landing a 7f novice at Chelmsford in May; followed up in a Doncaster handicap the following month and she's run creditably in defeat the last twice, travelling best at Leicester last time; stepping up to 1m needs to bring about some improvement but that's quite possible.

Disappointed over 1m on penultimate start but otherwise it's been a solid campaign at 7f, including wins in May/June; acts on Polytrack; concern is that handicapper has caught up with her.
