Form & Verdict
Three wins as a 2yo, two of them over C&D, and she recorded a career-best RPR in a Class 4 handicap when last seen in November; 4lb higher mark asks a stiffer question of her but her yard are going well and she clearly likes it here.

Last three wins have come at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta), the latest a convincing success in a fillies' handicap last month; this is deeper but she's on the up and it wouldn't be wise to underestimate her.

Won a 5f maiden at Nottingham on heavy ground on her fourth start last season; ended the year with an improved second placing in a Newmarket nursery but that was 7f and with cheekpieces added; remains to be seen if she can back it up under these different conditions.

C&D winner (good to soft) off 1lb higher last summer; also ran a fine race in a Class 2 event over C&D (good) in October when finishing strongly up the middle of the track; a most encouraging return to action at Wolverhampton 18 days ago when without usual headgear (back on today), dropped in from a bad draw but making up plenty of ground late on; lots to like.
