Improved on her three 7f novice efforts when narrowly off the mark over C&D three weeks ago; still showed signs of inexperience there and a 2lb rise seems fair, so she goes on the shortlist.

Finished eighth in two runs in France last year (not beaten far on debut) but he was out the back at 125-1 in a 7f novice here on his stable debut three weeks ago (Midnight Drive fourth); this should be more suitable but there are risks involved.
