Form & Verdict

Built on the promise of her first two runs when easily winning a Windsor maiden (1m, soft) last October; advanced her form again when going down by only a neck in 1m2f Haydock handicap (soft) on reappearance; highly likely capable of better again after only four starts and the drop back to 1m shouldn't inconvenience her; the forecast quicker ground is an unknown, though.

Lightly raced filly for leading connections; off for 442 days before winning a 1m novice on Newcastle's AW; failed to feature in a muddling race there next time but back on the up when placed in turf handicaps last twice, latest over 1m at Newmarket (good) in a race which has worked out; strong traveller who could be suited by this big-field scenario.

J: Jim Crowley

T: Owen Burrows

Well-bred filly who's still in training, a positive pointer in itself; won a maiden at Beverley and handicap debut at Sandown, also running well in big-field handicap at Glorious Goodwood (1m, good to soft); below form over 1m2f at York last August, racing freely, and a hood (absent for last three starts) returns for this 1m reappearance; needs better but she's one to note.

Her first three starts on turf yielded form figures of 121 and she was a lot better than the result when sixth of 12 back on grass at Goodwood (7f, good) 26 days ago, travelling strongly but repeatedly denied a run towards the rail until it was all too late; stays 1m; enters the reckoning.

Took off when switched to turf last year, winning at Newmarket (7f, good) and Newbury (7f, good to firm) and only going down narrowly at Haydock (1m, good to firm) in between; may have improved generally, so not dismissed back on the AW after ten months off; watch market.

Won twice in the spring last year, including on 1m Musselburgh handicap debut (good to soft); made an encouraging return from over a year off when fourth of ten to Ron O at Redcar (1m, good to firm) last month, making headway into a challenging position before no extra late on, as if the outing was just needed; that form has been strongly boosted; very interesting.

1m winner in three of her seven starts as a 3yo, notably a Class 4 event at Chelmsford in November; stepped up on a disappointing reappearance when fourth on AW at Kempton three weeks ago but still below her best; her stable is in flying form so a full-scale revival is possible with a first-time tongue-tie added to her cheekpieces.

Looked a nice prospect when making a winning debut at Newbury (7f, soft) last April and useful form when fourth of eight in a 1m York Listed event (good to firm) four weeks later; beaten at short odds in 1m novice at Chelmsford in August on her only subsequent start but returns as a very unexposed sort from a top stable; her lack of match practice is a worry, though, and Jim Crowley seemingly prefers Rowayeh.
