Low-key start for this yard but she sprung back to life with a 7f win at Chepstow last week; the step back up to 7f and return of a hood were put forward as the reasons for the improvement so it's surprising to see the headgear left off this time; only 1lb higher despite the penalty so obvious chance from a handicapping perspective.
