Won a novice at Bath in August and getting up late on in a six-runner race at Ascot (good to firm) on handicap debut was much better form, both over 1m2f; has stamina in the pedigree but settling her is not straightforward; either way, major improvement is needed at 1m4f on this hat-trick bid.

Unexposed 3yo whose novice form, which includes a success at this venue (1m, good to soft), has worked out well; far from disgraced at Ascot (1m2f; wore hood) on handicap debut considering the race didn't pan out favourably (could have done with stronger pace); should do better still and warrants respect back here.

Sole win came at Sandown (1m2f) two starts ago when benefiting from a well-judged front-running ride in amateur event; that form looks unreliable and he appears somewhat exposed otherwise; not solid.
