Has raced mostly in Group and Listed races this year but she should have a future in handicaps, having done well to finish as close as she did on the unfavoured side, after serious interference, in the Sandringham at the Royal meeting (1m, good to firm); has since run well in Listed company (first-time tongue-tie latest, retained) and well worth considering.
