Beaten when prominent in the betting for all four stable starts, and now 0-10 overall; latest second, when coming from further back than ideal behind a revived handicapper here (1m2f), was a solid effort; stamina for new trip not guaranteed and she's now 3lb higher to boot; others appeal more for the win.

Did well on turf last summer, winning four Class 6 handicaps (1m3f-1m4f); well beaten over 1m2f here on his return to action in January and dropped right away over hurdles last time; probably needs some help from the handicapper.
