Form & Verdict

Second in a good-ground bumper; clear best of her three handicap runs was her keeping-on fourth at Taunton (3m, soft) in March, in between two appearances at about 2m5f (here latest); needs to build on that Taunton run too and has headgear first time.

Well beaten on handicap debut in February but her keeping-on fourth at Taunton (3m, soft) last month was much more encouraging; she was over 6l behind Giulietta there, but is open to further progress and her bumper form suggests today's faster ground will suit.
