Form & Verdict

Promising third in Nottingham maiden (8.3f, soft) on second start but she was disappointing when a well-held fourth in France (1m2f, heavy; 11-5) in November; now goes handicapping after a break but she needs more progress to make an impact off this opening mark.

Big improvement when winning 1m handicaps on AW at Chelmsford and Lingfield last twice; returns to turf off 3lb higher than for her narrow success last time but she has fast and slow ground winners in pedigree and has shaped as though this new trip should be within range; key player in her bid to make it 3-3 in handicaps.

Yet to show any worthwhile form in her three runs to date, coming in seventh of nine in 6f maiden here last month; stepping up in trip and switching to low-grade handicaps could spark something extra for a yard who don't hang on to many with such lowly marks.

Kept on for close third at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) last August on third start and rallied too late when fourth of six on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m, good to soft) in September; gelded since; this step up in trip could prompt improvement and he has the assistance of Oisin Murphy.

His best turf form has come on soft/heavy; went close off 2lb higher on AW at Wolverhampton (9.4f) in January but he struggled back on turf at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) last month; this switch back to forecast sower ground is a positive but he's now 0-10 and others are more convincing.
