Not yet off the mark but she gave it a very good shot in her latest handicap, against one on a three-timer (pair clear), over C&D last month; just 1lb higher here and should be thereabouts back at this level.

Going great guns since handicapping, starting with a 6f win here and going on to better things in three 5f events elsewhere; has more to do than at Lingfield 18 days ago but she again sealed the deal quite takingly and a 2lb rise shouldn't be beyond her.

On the go early last season and wasn't seen again after August (gelded in early summer); will need to improve for the switch to AW in first-time headgear and it will be interesting to see how he goes in the market for a yard that's made a bright start to the year.
