Form & Verdict

Has shown career-best form with her 1m5f/1m4f turf wins the last twice and is well treated under a penalty turned out quickly (future mark 2lb higher); the negatives are her AW record (0-8) and stamina question mark (first attempt at 2m).

Runner-up in four consecutive starts over 1m6f-16.5f on the AW last autumn and a fair third of six behind a subsequent winner at Kempton (2m, Polytrack) last month, but he is now 0-26 so has enough to prove.

Prescott filly who remains a maiden and sometimes hangs but has two pieces of encouraging form (11.5f/1m2f) since handicapping; combination of new trip and first-time headgear may spark progress; cannot give up on her yet.

Two Flat wins for another yard, at 1m1f (good to soft) and 1m6f (good to firm); also showed some promise in two hurdles for Alice Haynes but left that yard for 6,500gns and, having raced freely, she dropped out on recent handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft); this shorter trip looks a good move but would prefer drier ground.
