Built on a respectable Beverley run (fourth) when winning at Carlisle (7f Class 6 maiden handicap, good to firm; with Highland Queen second); less competitive from her revised mark over slightly further next time, but no surprise if she bounces back on her first visit to Newcastle.

Maiden (0-14 all codes, 0-7 Flat); has shown a modest level of form in each of his last three starts (6f-1m, turf), falling sharply in the weights as a result; tough to consider even though this is just his second AW appearance.

Sole win from 16 starts came in a weak 6f novice at Wolverhampton in February; found it difficult to make her presence felt in handicap company thereafter, easing a total of 10lb in the weights; could feasibly fare better returning from a three-month absence.

Yet to win (0-11), but runner-up on three occasions, including in blinkers at Chepstow (7f) in July; she has had various issues, either in or breaking from the stalls (stumbled badly at Ffos Las) since; reverting to cheekpieces coupled with a first visit to Newcastle could spark a revival.

Form & Verdict

Versatile (6f-1m) and he's now rated 4lb lower than when successful here (6f) in March; shaped okay when fifth at Carlisle last time - form franked by the winner here this week - so must enter the thought process back over 7f on first start for Antony Brittain.
