Form & Verdict

Six-race maiden who seemed to improve for the fitting of cheekpieces when second of 11 at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) 13 days ago; finished over 4l behind the winner there, but that rival has since followed up in equally emphatic fashion; high on the list from the same mark.

Consistent on AW (1m-1m3f) since cheekpieces were added in the autumn, and opened her account at Wolverhampton (9.4f) in October; untested over this trip and needs to prove she's fully effective on turf but still goes on the shortlist.

In fine form lately, winning here (1m6f) last month and bolting up by 5l at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) a week ago; drop in trip not completely ideal, but she is 4lb well in under her penalty so should still take all the beating.

Both AW wins have come over C&D and is now 4lb lower than for her latest success in March; well below form in her last two starts back here, though, including when well behind Storm Asset on the first occasion, so a major doubt as to whether she can take advantage; Casa Luna looks the stable's main hope.
