- Happy Birthday Robert Maxsted Fillies' Handicap (Class 4)
- 1m 4f 23y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
C&D winner on just her second run on the Flat and had the look of one who would stay further. Given a mark of 85 for her one handicap in this sphere (hurdles rated 122); ran poorly on her last hurdles start and mark looks a challenging one.
Responded well to pressure to take a Windsor handicap over a slightly shorter trip last year off a 2lb lower mark (ran with credit in two later starts). Looked to need the run on her return at Windsor after long absence (threatened winner briefly).
Rewarded for her consistency last year finally with a Haydock win (1m6f, good) off a 4lb lower mark (made all, value for greater winning margin). Found out by softer ground when returned to the same C&D and makes her seasonal return here.
Looked a different proposition with her return run tucked away and has scored back-to-back victories since looking a stronger and stronger stayer (2/2 in handicaps). Raised another 6lb in her hat-trick bid but her progression may not be over yet.
Handicap debutante with a smart pedigree although her three runs so far haven't seen her live up to that status (looked slow last time). Had the run of the race last time (first turf start) and looks to need a test and/or more time to mature.
