9st 6lb

J: Luke Morris

T: Archie Watson

Responded well to positive rides for both wins at Lingfield (7f, Polytrack), but only fourth of seven in her hat-trick bid over this C&D last month and well held back on turf at Catterick (7f, good to firm) a fortnight later; cheekpieces given a go on this return to the AW and claims if bouncing back.

Her two wins have come over this far at Lingfield, latterly dictating matters throughout on her handicap debut and comfortably accounting for a subsequent winner; up just 3lb for this Tapeta debut.

Hasn't been seeing out 1m since fitted with headgear and gelded, and the drop to 7f should suit back into handicap company; he's an exposed maiden, though, and vulnerable again.
