Strong-travelling mare who has run well here in the past and who was gaining her third win of the campaign at Goodwood last month; still improving but she faces an uphill struggle on these terms.

Form & Verdict

Too keen for 7f on his first two starts; off the mark dropped to 5f at Windsor three weeks ago (good ground) but it was hard work and the form looks modest; given his pedigree and connections it would be folly to rule out further progress but the likelihood is that it will be needed.

J: Robert Havlin

Used to pull too hard but the switch to sprinting, and especially the move to AW, has had a huge impact, winning his last three starts in the manner of a top-class performer; lumbered with a 13lb rise for the latest success but a greater concern may be whether he can be use his energy and potent change of gear as efficiently over today's stiff 6f.

Has looked a natural in two runs since switched to AW, winning over 6f at Lingfield in November and looking one to keep firmly onside with a stylish C&D win 12 days ago; 5lb higher in his hat-trick bid but he looks the type to take higher rank on AW.

Hit and miss last year but he kicks off this season off a reduced mark; the absence of headgear, allied to his five-month layoff, tilts the scales in favour of others.

C&D winner in April 2021, but this his first visit here since finishing second of 12 over this trip in March of last year; most of his form on turf this season shows that the ability remains and he has dropped 1lb below his last winning mark; interesting.

Now 15lb lower than for his last win and signs that a wind op had done the trick when keeping on for third at Lingfield five weeks ago (6f); good chance if he can transfer that form to Tapeta.
