Form & Verdict
Seen far more often at 1m4f, for instance for two Newmarket wins in 2022; Listed races proved too tough this term and she was far more competitive when second of four back in a handicap on latest start, but 1m2f is a concern.

Made it 2-2 on this course when comfortably winning from the front in six-runner handicap over C&D (good) a fortnight ago; hit with a 7lb rise and takes on some unexposed 3yos in this hotter contest, but she clearly likes it here and could make another bold bid.

Long odds on when she readily made all at Yarmouth (1m2f) in August, in between two minor honours in other novice races; no improvement in form (debut was on good to soft) but early days and better might be forthcoming on this handicap debut.

Form & Verdict
Handicap debut on sixth start when she won on Newmarket July course (1m2f) in gritty fashion; improved again when third there next time and it was heavy ground when she tailed off at Glorious Goodwood (first turf run away from good ground) and that is forgivable; close up if bouncing back.

Fairly useful Flat-racer who signed off for Andrew Balding with respectable third at Newmarket (1m2f, good; RPR 84) in September and was sold for 50,000gns the following month; with a top stable for hurdling career but needs to prove he can cope with slow ground.

2,500,000euros yearling buy who is half-sister to Arc winner Sottsass; beat an odds-on Godolphin filly on debut at Newmarket in July 2022 and second to a smart filly on AW last September, both over 1m; it's been a while but she's back and should bring plenty of potential, including upped in trip.
