Form & Verdict

Free-going filly who was never off the bridle when landing a small-field handicap at Kempton in January; favourite to beat a couple of these at Lingfield four weeks ago but dropped away in the final half furlong to finish fifth; the addition of a hood looks a good move but Rossa Ryan, on board for her last three starts, takes the ride on Wild Side today.

The winner of four of her six runs in handicap company, most recently when toying with three rivals at Kempton in January (7f); won in a canter there despite taking a strong hold in the early part of the race but a 7lb rise against deeper opposition will demand another step forward.

3-3 on AW for her new yard, better positioned than the reopposing Nine Tenths over C&D on New Year's Day; produced a taking display in a trial for this race at Lingfield four weeks ago, finding plenty for pressure and having a couple of these in behind; another 6lb higher but she may not have reached her ceiling just yet.

Won three times at Chelmsford when trained by James Tate; the return to AW has prompted further progress for her new stable and having seen off Aramis Grey at Wolverhampton she ran on well to score at Newcastle on New Year's Day; latest 3lb rise unlikely to prove beyond her.

Three wins and two seconds from her five AW starts, most recently a smooth Listed success at Wolverhampton (7f); wasn't as well positioned as Shades Of Summer when second to that rival here on New Year's Day and she's weighted to turn the tables; this is a high-profile ride for 7lb claimer Jack Enright but he's won on her already and she has plenty in her favour.
