Fine on soft ground but raced freely (has often worn a hood) when below market expectations on heavy going last time; is weighted to her best now following two Bath wins in August.

Triple Flat winner at 1m3f and 1m2f in 2023, including on heavy; looked as if she might make a go of it over hurdles when fourth of nine finishers at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) on Boxing Day, but is another for whom handicaps look more likely.

Probably wasn't suited by dropping back in trip at Windsor last time (1m2f, heavy) after winning in a determined manner there (1m4f, soft) a week prior; no obvious issue with AW, even though his better synthetics efforts have come elsewhere at Kempton and Chelmsford; dangerous to dismiss.

Both wins came on faster ground and he didn't see it out behind Assembled here last Monday over the extended 1m3f having pulled hard; is entitled to at least lose the gap on 4lb better terms if more amenable, though.

Another solid effort in defeat on Polytrack last time and the return to a more testing 1m2f will suit, but his two Bath wins came on fast ground and these conditions are an unknown; obvious chance if he handles the ground, though.
