Form & Verdict

Promise in a couple of runs at Windsor, including on soft, and she was prominent in the market ahead of her nursery debut four weeks ago (5f, good to soft), only to find her path blocked at a crucial stage; dropped 1lb for her troubles; more to come.

Unlucky on her nursery debut at Chepstow and showed her true colours with a game effort to win a Class 5 fillies' nursery at Leicester last month; 4lb rise, allied to the widest stall, might be enough to scupper the follow-up; AW debut.

Chelmsford novice winner (6f, Polytrack) last September and her third of six on reappearance here (7f) last month was a fair effort, but she was well held at Southwell (6f, Tapeta) a week ago; cheekpieces worn then are quickly removed and she has possibilities on her best form.

Her first two runs were encouraging but she hasn't progressed, albeit she looked stretched by 7f at Leicester three weeks ago; this is uncompetitive and she can't be discounted dropping in grade.

Finished third in her four starts in novice and maiden company (6f and 7f, good or slower); no improvement in two nursery runs but this represents an ease in grade and she's edging down the weights.

Placed in novice events on turf in her first four starts; the handicapper has been in command since but 5f didn't suit here last time and today's return to 7f, coupled with a first crack at a Class 6, should see her in a better light; stable also run Sighter.
