Form & Verdict
Improving fast, winning her last two races by over 4l including when beating Aiming High on handicap debut at Doncaster (1m4f, good) seven days ago; handicapper hasn't missed her with a 9lb rise, but the ceiling of her ability is yet to be established; major player.

Form & Verdict
Progressive in her first four starts, winning a Lingfield novice (1m, AW) last November and slamming three rivals on handicap/turf debut at Windsor (1m2f, soft) last month, but found the step up to Listed company too much back at Lingfield (1m4f) a fortnight ago; should be happier back in a handicap and respected if handling the likely quicker conditions.

Made a winning debut in a Windsor novice (6f, good to soft) last August and runner-up in a Newbury conditions event (7f, good) next time, but finished tailed off in a Listed contest back there (7f, heavy) on her final outing; makes her handicap debut after seven months off and worth a market check with her dam having won over this trip.

Ran well to finish fifth of 16 on her return from seven months off at Newmarket (1m6f, soft) 20 days ago and that form has received several boosts in the meantime; handles good to firm ground well, but she doesn't have a great strike-rate (3-42) and this trip looks too sharp for her now.

2022 campaign included 1m4f wins in a soft-ground maiden and AW handicap, followed by a close fourth when tried over 1m6f; latest start was more like it again, when making most for a respectable fourth of eight at this track (1m4f); going back up in trip looks in order but 2m is something new.
