In the frame in her last two starts over 1m6f on Tapeta, including when third of 12 in cheekpieces (now removed) here last month (winner has gone in again since); return this trip may be a positive, though, having won comfortably off this mark over C&D for Hugo Palmer in September; interesting.

All three wins have come over 1m2f at Chelmsford (Polytrack); now 2lb lower than for his last success in March but he's been disappointing since and was laboured when stepped back up to this trip at Southwell 12 days ago; others preferred.

Added to her AW bumper win when scoring over 1m6f here in January and she went very close over C&D the following month; didn't fire in her final run in the winter but she still looks on a workable mark and needs checking in the market on her return.

Her last win was in April 2021 but she's finished runner-in four of her six starts for this yard including a near miss at Nottingham (1m2f, good to firm) in May; couldn't pose a threat when fourth at Yarmouth last time but that was against a pace bias and she has possibilities back up in trip; new headgear.
