All four wins have come over 1m2f/1m4f around here, the latest from 2lb lower in November; finished behind three of these when fourth of nine over C&D in January, but appeared to be undone by a lack of pace there; capable of playing a part if this pans out more in her favour back from a 51-day break.

Been offering more at Newcastle lately but she stays 1m2f well and this is only the second time she's run at shy of 1m; she can miss the break and is usually dropped in too, and it remains to be seen whether she has the toe for this.

C&D winner for Alan King as a 2yo; off the mark for this yard with a narrow success over 9.5f here last week, getting to the front easily enough but having to work hard close home; 5lb penalty to contend with for that short-head success but he's still more likely to give his running than many.
