Has improved with each of her four runs and she went close as favourite on her handicap debut over C&D on Thursday; this is a quick turnaround but she's on the same mark as last time and is strongly respected with tongue-tie added.

Five-race maiden who has not really progressed so far but he ran into some trouble when a rallying sixth here (1m; joint-favourite) last month; was beaten less than 3l in that race and he could be dangerous back up in trip; first-time cheekpieces replace blinkers.
