Form & Verdict
Sixth of 11, beaten 6l, on this month's Kempton debut (7f; finished in front of Ceanna) but the bare numbers mask the considerable promise she displayed, travelling very well in rear turning for home and picking up very strongly from over 1f out without getting a clear run through; drawn wide today but she is open to plenty of improvement.

Has work to do on these terms and was never in contention when dropped to 6f at Newmarket last month (soft) but had hinted earlier that a sprint trip wouldn't be a forlorn hope and the return to Tapeta is worth a go, having won impressively at Wolverhampton (7f) on final 2yo start.

Has her quirks - she has hung left on occasions - and her overall profile is one of inconsistency; no denying she's talented though and the ease with which she travelled through a good 7f handicap (heavy) at Newbury three weeks ago bodes well for her claims now dropping to 6f; rain would aid her cause; interesting despite looking to face an uphill task at the weights.

Progressive in first five starts, winning at Deauville (6.5f, Polytrack) last December and on handicap debut/reappearance at Chepstow (7f, good to soft) in May, but last of ten in a Carlisle Listed contest (7f, soft) the following month; should stay the longer trip back on AW with cheekpieces given a go and one to consider.
