Did not see out 3m on last month's reappearance and connections have since had a rethink trip-wise but she remains lightly raced and is only 2lb higher than when winning here (2m3f, good) on handicap debut in March.

Slightly disappointing when upped to 2m3f at Taunton this month but her close second at Kempton (2m, good to soft) two starts ago was a very good effort and she has possibilities here if judged on that.

Effectiveness over a sharp 2m-2m1f plain to see in her Ludlow and Cartmel wins, and no going concerns abound; yet to score outside of mares-only company, however, and little wriggle room off her mid-120s mark.
