Big improvement last term brought two handicap wins in August by wide margins and she was third of 15 in a 1m4f Listed race at Galway in September; respectable, front-running fourth of nine in Listed race at Goodwood on reappearance, when the winner Luisa Casati beat her by just over 5l; will fare bit better if back to peak form but probably needs a career best to win.
