It was only a Class 5 that she won convincingly at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) and she failed to cope with the rise in class at Glorious Goodwood, albeit with heavy ground probably not ideal (effective on soft); could yet confirm herself to be a progressive filly.

Improved his record to 2-13 with a front-running win at Bath (1m, good to soft) two weeks ago; still looks feasibly treated off his revised mark but his best form has come on good/slower ground and he could have competition for the lead here.
