All turf starts 6f on good to firm; successful twice at Windsor (novice/handicap) this summer; latest effort suggests she's ready for a crack at 7f (pedigree backs that up); remains open to further improvement; shortlisted.

Bred to be smart (by Dubawi; dam won Albany over this C&D) and she has improved with every run, never far away when beating 11 rivals on handicap debut at Windsor (6f, good to firm) two weeks ago; almost certainly open to further progress and could be the one to beat towards the foot of the weights.

Won twice on the AW and added two Salisbury handicaps (6f and 7f) this season; most decisive in landing the second of those on fast ground but went up 12lb and it's been a struggle since, albeit under softer conditions; needs a turnaround but the ground should help.
