Form & Verdict

Splendidly tough mare who was notching her third win of a busy campaign when trouncing ten rivals in a novice over C&D (good to soft; made most of the running) three weeks ago; that was her best effort by some way and there seemed to be no fluke about it; probably again the one to beat.

Twice beaten by Ooh Betty last spring but has come on leaps and bounds since then, producing career-best RPRs in winning 2m mares' hurdles at Newbury late last year (latest a Listed race); has more on her plate here but she's a no-nonsense mare who will be up there throughout.

Has looked one of her stable's lesser lights so far, undergoing two breathing operations and finishing unplaced in three bumpers and a maiden hurdle; yard took this race 12 months ago with Luccia but that one had already won a Listed bumper.

Easily best effort when beaten a head in mares' Listed race over C&D (good to soft) in December; she was tilting at windmills in a Grade 1 here next time but her 19l defeat when the form choice at Wincanton (2m5f) one month ago was disconcerting; needs overall improvement on handicap debut.

Good third of six in Listed novice at Newbury (2m, good to soft) in December; ran no race on soft ground back there next time and, although better than that, she was last of six on handicap debut ten days later; off 100 days and needs major improvement but she's one of the least exposed and this significant step up in trip holds appeal.
