Two 5f wins (one over C&D) on ground slower than good last year; signed off with a disappointing run in October and has fitness to prove today but could plausibly have some improvement to come as a 4yo.

No win since making all in the Sky Bet Sunday Series at Musselburgh (5f) in summer 2021; 12lb lower than when runner-up over C&D in January 2023 but failed to sparkle on debut for Jim Goldie here in November; best watched.

Scored off 9lb higher at Musselburgh (5f, good) last spring but the rest of last season's form was underwhelming, and she returns from her layoff with questions to answer.

Below par on final few runs last season and same story over C&D on last month's reappearance, however, he may have needed that latest run and he's on a handy mark judged on his two turf wins last June; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Beat 19 rivals when scoring over C&D (good to soft) off 7lb higher in September but has not fired on the AW this year; weakened tamely after travelling strongly at Newcastle on latest outing and it's hard to know what to expect from him on this turf return.
