Creditable third of six on C&D handicap debut in January but better form at 6f on Lingfield AW next time; the way she's been running over 5f on turf recently suggests others may have the legs of her round here.

Front-runner who rewarded strong market support when winning at Chelmsford in October (6f); two solid efforts have followed, notably latest third to Ramon Di Loria where he did well to last as long as he did given then went quick early; no doubting he has quirks but he's not handicapped out of things and today's more severe headgear might help him focus.
