Form & Verdict

Major improvement from her maiden form when defying odds of 40-1 on handicap debut 12 days ago; that form has already been boosted and may be able to defy 8lb rise with possibly more to come at this new trip; could go well with Velazquez booked.

Fair flat maiden and pick of four attempts hurdling when front-running third at Galway on soft, too keen under similar tactics over C&D latest (Burvea ahead); more needed on handicap debut.
