Ex-Irish filly who has really found her feet for her new yard in recent weeks, winning for the second time at Newcastle when full value for her 6f success ten days ago; equally effective over this trip and she should go well despite her penalty.

Quiet start for this yard but she's found her stride this year, winning three times at Newcastle (once at 6f, twice over today's trip); only 1lb higher than for the latest victory but she's taking on a different calibre of opponent now.

Won a couple of good nurseries as a 2yo, the second of them off today's mark; unable to add to his tally last year but looked to retain all his ability; has an absence to contend with but this is weaker than he's used to and he can't be ignored.

Form & Verdict

Looked promising when winning two 1m events on the AW last winter; his progress stalled in turf handicaps and he was sold out of Jack Channon's yard for 11,000gns in October; this is effectively a drop in grade (Class 4 in name only) and getting back on AW could be beneficial; absent for 252 days but he needs a market check.

Backed on his return to turf at Thirsk (5f, heavy) last week and just missed out, going down by a short-head with the first two pulling 6l clear of the third; his head went up in the air under pressure there and it looked one that got away but he's 4lb well in and he's run well at Ripon before.

Getting on for two years since his last win but he's tumbled down the weights and comes here fit from AW; 5f on soft ground in a well-run race should see him to good effect; will need luck in running from the rail draw but he has too much ability to rule out.

Form & Verdict

Ran to form in only one of his six starts since returning to action last September and although he's starting out for his new yard (sold 6,000gns last month) off a lowly mark, he could prove vulnerable once again; usually front-runs.
