Won at Perth (3m, good to soft) last August and, after a break, kept on for good third here (2m5f, good) last month; the step back up in trip is a plus and she could be in the mix if conditions suit (ran okay in a bumper on soft in 2019; all starts since on good to soft or faster).

Has a very mixed record this year but won two 3m hurdle races (April and August, from a long way off the pace on both occasions) and beaten a neck at Kelso on latest outing; needs a major career best and she's not proven on worse than good to soft.
