Didn't really fire in her final two runs last year but she won back-to-back races at Newcastle (1m) and here (8.6f) in the autumn; looks interesting on that form and her last win was under Paddy Barlow; dangerous back from a short break.

Often leads but suited by patient tactics when winning at Newcastle and, with plenty to spare, at Wolverhampton (both about 1m); was stunned by 25-1 shot Finn Russell there since but lost little in defeat; first experience of Polytrack today but should be close between them again.
