Form & Verdict

Bought for 360,000euros as a 2yo; duly looked a very nice type at Catterick (7f, good) last month on debut, justifying favouritism with plenty in hand; bred to be as effective at this shorter trip and commands respect under 6lb penalty.

Nine-race maiden; best form over 6f on the AW; not disgraced in a 6f handicap at Doncaster on return to turf last time (soft), when shaping as though a return to 7f would suit; this is tougher but has an each-way chance.

Lacks recent match practice but looks open to improvement, having shown promise when fifth in 5f AW contest at Newcastle nine months ago; the bare form can be marked up (met trouble); interesting, especially if the market speaks positively.

Form & Verdict

Huge odds in both outings but outran her 200-1 price at Newcastle (6f, AW; finished third) latest and may well back up that form, being half-sister to three winners for her owner; that said, handicaps are likely to prove her ideal scene.

Slowly away and always behind when a remote last of six at Thirsk 11 days ago (6f, soft; behind Willow Baby); only 6-1 on that occasion but it was a weak race, winner aside, and she'll need to have learned quickly if she's to feature.
