Quickened nicely to land the Winter Oaks at Lingfield (off 8lb lower) ten weeks ago, completing a handicap hat-trick and taking overall record on AW to 4-5; progressive filly who could develop into something better than a handicapper before long; has to be feared.

Has won four of her seven starts and made it 3-4 on AW when coming from well off the pace to pick off the reopposing Queen Regent towards the finish over C&D last month; did well to get up from so far back and a further 4lb rise may not stop her; yard won this last year.
