- Bet Online Now! starsports.bet Fillies' Handicap (Class 5)
- 6f 210y, Good to Firm (Firm in places)
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Cost £40,000 as a yearling, showing a reasonable level of juvenile form; disappointing since switched to handicapping (with and without headgear); still plenty of time to come good but a watching brief advised.
Cost 260,000 gns as a yearling, but has came up well short of the mark so far, including when finishing ninth of ten on handicap debut at Salisbury (7f) last month.
Winner of three races since early April (all over 7f), including when taking a Class 6 handicap at Lingfield in June; up a further 5lb in a more competitive race, but no problems whatsoever with this track (C&D winner).
Back from a winter break with a fair first turf effort at Lingfield last month (third); beaten just shy of 4L by Dragon Moon. Remains unexposed up 1f in trip for handicap debut.
Won her first two starts on turf in May (including over C&D), only climbing a trace amount in the weights; not quite so sharp more latterly, but equally not totally disgraced; couldn't be dismissed at a track which she handles.
Showed ability as a juvenile, gaining course experience when runner-up here in September 2017 (5.5f); not kicked on this year (with headgear tried and retained); placed in a seller latest so undoubtedly needs more tonight.
Had plenty of racing for her age, but is a three-time winner (7f-1m). Beaten ¾L by course specialist Roy Rocket over 1m2f here latest and now drops back to 7f for the first time since winning at Leicester in October 2017.
Made it 14th time lucky when winning over 6f here last week, and is turned out quickly under a 6lb penalty - with a different rider booked; might prove ideally suited by this extra furlong as she regularly does her best work late in her races.
