All three runs on Polytrack; yet to build on promising debut third but slow starts haven't helped and it's still early days for a filly who is bred to be a good bit better than an opening mark of 64; blinkers replace cheekpieces and interesting to see how strong the betting vibes are.

Short price for his handicap debut at Chelmsford a fortnight ago, when upped from 1m to 1m5f, only to pull hard; is evidently felt capable of better and hopefully the first-time hood/bigger field will help him settle; yard is having a good spring.
