Form & Verdict

Won off this mark over 1m here (good to firm) in May and failed by only a nose (pair clear) at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) last weekend; turns out again before a 2lb rise for that kicks in; 7f is possibly a little shorter than ideal but she should still be in the shake-up.

Offered the first indication that he may be able to do something from his falling mark when keeping on for third over 7f at Thirsk (soft) on Monday; beaten just under 5l so he'll need to build on that, but it's possible.

Ex-Richard Hannon; better signs for new yard when placed in handicaps at Musselburgh (7f, good) and Carlisle (6f, good to firm) in recent weeks; the return to 7f will suit and she's a player if handling the likely ground conditions (well held on both attempts on softer than good).
