Recorded her first win since 2018 when scoring at 18-1 in a Wolverhampton handicap (7f, AW) early this month; that race set up for her closing style and things didn't pan out so favourably at same venue yesterday (never dangerous); chance partly depends on whether she gets a strong pace to aim at.

Shaped quite well when third on Chepstow handicap debut (7f, good) and feasible excuses since on account of soft ground and too long a trip; possibilities.
