Form & Verdict

Placed on Lingfield AW last month, after a break, and didn't run badly at Kempton a fortnight ago; may not have much margin for error off her 5lb higher turf mark but capable apprentice Olivia Tubb (who won on her last summer) claims 5lb today; might be the answer.

Course specialist who returned to form and won comfortably by 3l here (1m, good) when back on turf ten days ago; probably still on a workable mark after recent 7lb rise but moves up from 0-55 grade today and the drop back to 7f is not sure to suit.
