Gained due reward for her consistency when finally off the mark over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago; raised 3lb since and, given that she's most proficient on soft ground (form figures 23231) and thrives for the handling of Georgia Dobie, she rates as the clear pick.

Form & Verdict

Unplaced on her first nine starts but was evidently very well suited by combination of heavy ground and step up to 1m when winning comfortably off basement mark at Windsor 11 days ago; moves up from 0-52 grade and has 6lb penalty to shoulder here but, now that connections have found the key to her, she could quite plausibly have more improvement to come.
