The tongue-tie and cheekpieces combination worked a treat for two wins at Bangor in August (2m, good) and she wasn't far away from bringing up the hat-trick; again raced keenly at Market Rasen but couldn't get away with it in that Class 2 event; likely strong pace here will help her and capable of being in the thick of it.
