Beat a very useful filly at Windsor (1m, good to firm) and was conceding weight to a promising colt when not quite up to the task at Kempton (7f, AW) where some tail-swishing didn't go unnoticed; remains capable of better for a yard that's won this three times and their winner last year was also a thrice-raced handicap debutante.

Fifth of 12 at Newmarket (7f, good) last August was fair form on debut; not seen again until well beaten in C&D maiden (good to firm) in May and although she should stay at least 1m and the stable is in much better form now, she probably has stiff task against two of today's rivals.
