Made a successful debut at Ascot (7f, good to firm) as a 2yo, but has only made the track four times since; was returning from another nine months off in a first-time hood (now removed) at Kempton (1m3f, AW) three weeks ago, but was far from disgraced in finishing fifth of nine; interesting down in grade with the run under her belt.

Won at Ascot (7f, good to firm) on debut; ran creditably on her only subsequent 2yo start but behind in handicaps on both runs as 3yo (last May and July); upped to 1m2f for latest and now it's 1m3f for AW debut in a first-time hood; fair bit to prove.

Form & Verdict
Two wins on turf (1m2f, good to firm) for George Boughey last May, but not shown much on the AW lately including in both outings for this yard; return to grass will need to have a major effect and stable may hold stronger claims with Gold Souk.

Form & Verdict
Lightly raced since winning off 2lb higher at Chepstow (1m2f, good to firm) in the summer of 2021, but although he has run well on occasions he is none too consistent; drying ground would be in his favour, but enough to prove returning from another 136 days off; cheekpieces worn last time are quickly discarded.
