Would have questions to answer on ground softer than good but she's a course winner on a fair mark and there were excuses when performing below market expectations on her comeback.

Beaten favourite at Thirsk this month and that abject performance may well have been down to heavy ground; has had excuses with one thing and another in previous runs here this year and is evidently felt capable off this sort of mark (down another 2lb).

Promising turf debut as 3yo; kept to Newcastle AW since, breaking duck in 1m novice last autumn but he hasn't looked ahead of his mark in handicaps since and well held over 1m last time; not sure to want soft ground either, having missed an intended run on soft at the start of career.

Modest form since second start but his closest finish came when just over 3l behind Arkenstar in nine-runner handicap over C&D (good) 12 days ago, hooded for the first time and eventually getting the message as he ran on from last to fifth; that gave some hope and he's been dropped 2lb since.
