19:40 Brighton Tue 10 July 2018
Broke the maiden tag at the 18th attempt when winning over C&D on her most recent start; up a mere 2lb, so we'll see whether or not she can continue to move forward.
Decisive C&D winner off a 5lb lower mark in September 2017 (11/2), but hasn't seen much racing since; never involved over 7f here last month on his first start for nine months.
Recorded a second Brighton win (6f-1m) when scoring by an all out head over C&D latest; 4lb rise to contend with.
Valid excuse when down the field behind Hidden Stash over C&D on his penultimate start, but had won well from a 3lb lower mark over C&D prior to that effort; posted another solid run (second) latest.
Sprung a shock (25/1) when off the mark at the 25th attempt at Lingfield (7f) in June, but she again ran well at that track just a week later when a staying on 2L fourth to Gainsay; player with extra yardage a plus.
No immediate progress in handicap company, but dropped a further 4lb in the weights with the first-time blinkers going on for turf debut; one to keep on your side for now given trainer/jockey combination.
Shown no worthwhile form so far, and was beaten a long way (eased) on handicap debut over 1m4f here last month; back in trip but certainly couldn't be advised.
Very few positives to take from his five career starts so far, but showed a little more when finishing fifth of 13 at Kempton latest (7f), and is lowly-weighted assuming that his trainer has established that 1m is his ideal trip.
