Progress stalled over 6f this term, after she'd been 2-2 as a 2yo; proved well suited by step up to 7f at Newbury (good to soft) last month, though, taking record on turf to 3-4; could well have more to offer at this trip; respected.

2-2 over 6f as a 2yo; slow start to her 3yo campaign but came good in a 7f handicap at Newbury last August; better form in defeat on her next two starts and her only run at 1m came in a stronger Listed event than this; she'll need to produce a clear personal best to win this.

Often leads; has acted on soft but both handicap wins came on good ground over 7f; respectable efforts in two 6f handicaps last year without looking a natural at the trip and looks one for another day.

Three wins and two seconds from her five AW starts, most recently a smooth Listed success at Wolverhampton (7f); wasn't as well positioned as Shades Of Summer when second to that rival here on New Year's Day and she's weighted to turn the tables; this is a high-profile ride for 7lb claimer Jack Enright but he's won on her already and she has plenty in her favour.

Two 6f handicap wins in August; come up short off a similar mark the last twice and although she handles heavy, this drop back to 5f asks a different question of her.

Has done well for her new yard this season, winning competitive 6f handicaps at Glorious Goodwood and Chepstow; 7f might have stretched her stamina at Doncaster last time; will need another personal best to return to winning ways but it's certainly possible.
