Form & Verdict

Thrice-raced filly who appeared to run well, albeit in an ordinary race for the course, at York (6f, good to soft; 33-1 second) most recently; not sure to go one better, as she now takes on a promising colt and some interesting newcomers.

Form & Verdict

Both starts over 7f on fast ground, better effort when 50-1 fifth at Yarmouth latest; shapes as if this drop to sprinting is worth a shot but looks the type who'll find stronger opportunities in handicaps shortly.

Soundly beaten on all three 2yo starts (6f-8.3f) and also struggled when 150-1 for recent seasonal/handicap debut (1m, AW); needs this drop to 5f to show her in a considerably better light.
