Sent off at 8/11 favourite for her reappearance at Wolverhampton (1m½f, AW) where she lead off the bend but hung badly right up the straight and gave it away. Tongue tie goes on and whilst there are some quirks, she has a Group 1 entry.
Improved last year but has looked in the handicappers grip so far this year. Well beaten at Ascot (1m, good to firm) latest and may need to drop a few pounds to be competitive at this level.
Won here over 7f (soft) on debut and followed that up with another good display at Windsor (1m, good) three weeks ago. Opening mark looks fair and top rider is booked. Another bold show likely.
Won over 7f on handicap debut at Kempton (AW) on final start last year. May have needed comeback effort at Windsor (1m2f, good) when seemingly stretched by the trip. Drops back to a mile here and not discounted.
Bounced back to form when just failing at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) last time. Nudged up 2lbs for that and switches to turf for the first time. Up against some unexposed sorts in here though and may find this tougher.
Steady improvement with each run without managing to get her head in front. Steps up to the mile for the first time and moves into handicaps off a fair mark. Rider claims valuable 3lb and player.
Came on a bundle for first run of the year when winning comfortably at Beverley (7½f, good) three weeks ago. Up 5lbs for that win and moves up in grade so more is needed to come out on top here but respected.
Last Year's Winner
Rasima (5/2), Caiya (11/4), Verandah (4/1), Fabulous Red (6/1), Arabian Jazz (7/1), Daddies Girl (10/1), Line House (16/1)
