Two good runs over 6f at Nottingham in June but well beaten the last twice and dropping to 5f asks a new question of her.

Made most when easily beating Hello Me at Nottingham last month and went close back at that track eight days later; wouldn't judge her too harshly on latest Chester fourth and returning to 6f can help; not ideally drawn but still not fully exposed.

Improved when making all in a small field a Nottingham and backed that up when narrowly denied on follow-up bid there 15 days ago (both 6f, good to firm); in fine fettle but isn't obviously crying out for the return to 7f; yard also runs Metabolt.

Record over C&D reads 11721 and she's returned to something like her best since a visor went on, winning twice and finishing second at Chelmsford last time (all 6f); might face competition for the lead but she's certainly not out of this.

Prolific since handicapping, winning seven of her last 11 starts (twice over C&D); ran another solid race in a 0-80 fillies' handicap at Hamilton last month when the stiff track looked to find her out late on; won't mind what the weather does and she's still not fully exposed.

Major improver since handicapping, doing well on good or faster last season and proving even more adept on soft ground this year; latest Thirsk success (6f, soft) was her third win from four runs this year, one of them a defeat of Slainte Mhath, who she's now 7lb better off with, at Thirsk; major player.

Form & Verdict
Seven-time winner (6f-1m) when trained by Mark Rimell; yet to hit top gear after two runs for Shaun Lycett this year but her sixth of 11 at Windsor (6f, good to firm) nine days ago was quite encouraging; no surprise if she takes another forward step here.
