Progressive Irish filly who made it 2-4 in handicaps with a stylish success at Punchestown (1m1f) last month; runner-up has gone in since so another bold showing on the cards despite a 8lb hike in the weights.

All of his nine wins have come on turf but he's held his form since his last success at Ayr (1m2f) in September and has run well here (1m2f/7f) in last two starts; this big step back up in trip is a positive and he shouldn't be far away.

Three wins at Ayr (1m-1m2f) this year and arrives on the back of some creditable placed efforts, the latest over 1m2f here; all 50 career starts over 1m+ so the unknown is whether he'll be fully effective over this shorter distance.
