Form & Verdict
Benefited from addition of cheekpieces when opening account with narrow C&D (good to firm) win nine days ago, her ninth start; went up only 2lb for that and could still have a bigger run in her; likely contender.

Much improved for cheekpieces going on, following up two C&D wins with two more elsewhere, latterly easily for Rose Dawes last weekend; will be 3lb higher than under the penalty from tomorrow and the five-timer is definitely within reach.

3-3 since cheekpieces were added last month, with all the wins gained over 1m; latest 7lb rise asks quite a lot of her but she's evidently in prime form, and new jockey Rose Dawes claims 5lb here.

Yet to show much under either code, invariably pulling hard; perhaps the drop in trip will help him settle, back from wind surgery, and this is more realistic now handicapping, but would want to see good support before considering him.
