Has improved since stepping up in trip and going handicapping, getting off the mark in a mares' race at Huntingdon last time (3m1f, good) having finished runner-up in a C&D handicap (good; form worked out well) the time before; up 6lb; strong chance.

Arrives seeking a hat-trick after comfortable wins at Uttoxeter (2m7f, soft) and under a penalty at Worcester (2m, good); should give a good account over this stiff 2m in trying to successfully concede weight all round.
