9st 6lb

J: David Nolan

T: Richard Fahey

Always prominent when scoring at Thirsk last September (6f, soft) but executed hold-up tactics successfully at Wolverhampton on last month's return to action; still feasibly weighted and drying ground won't be an issue (placed on good to firm).

Form & Verdict

Raced exclusively over 5f but has given the impression she may be in need of further now, notably when a strong finisher at Beverley (good to soft) in July; well handicapped on best form, including 2yo win off 6lb higher; looks interesting on first crack at 6f.

Runner-up on a couple of occasions this season but it wasn't just a lack of stamina that did for her at Ayr last week (7f, heavy); last of seven in one AW outing; capable but risky.

Campaigned mostly at 5f; 0-11 for current yard but ran well here (soft) in April and that effort provides cause for optimism; belated return to 6f presents a question mark, however.

Former sprinter who's not as good now and has become inconsistent; no problem with an easy, turning 7f when winning on turf in August but this is the first time he's been 1m and his stamina will be tested over a straight course.
