Record of 3-6 over 6f on AW and it was she who stole a march, under Rossa Ryan for the first time, when holding Moorgate and Dequinto in a C&D classified last month; good chance back in a handicap if competition for lead doesn't materialise.

Gained her fourth career success when just hanging on under a positive ride at Wolverhampton in January (6f); not quite so good over 7f a fortnight ago but she's a strong contender back down in trip and with Rossa Ryan taking over in the saddle.
