Clear second from out of the weights on stable debut at Bangor (2m7f, good) last month and didn't need to better that performance to win by 6l off correct mark at Fontwell (3m2f, good to soft) a few days later; 10lb above his winning mark here but has evidently turned a corner.

Reportedly treated for ulcers before displaying much-improved form to win a 3m Ludlow handicap by 11l (soft; 7lb lower); perhaps heavy ground didn't suit when tailed off at Exeter; better expected this time, for all that further suits her well.
