Bit off more than she could chew in the Group 3 Albany at Ascot last time but nothing wrong with her earlier second to the classy Calyx at Newmarket, despite being well beaten. Trip and ground ideal and has the perfect draw.
Solid form on first two runs, although rather threw victory away at Beverley two starts ago, and took a big backwards step at Thirsk last time out. Cheekpieces now given a try, which looks a good move, but has a little to prove.
A tale of steady rather than spectacular progress this term, but little was expected on her nursery debut at Chelmsford at the weekend, going off 33-1 and finished well beaten. May appreciate the return to turf, but does seem to have a bit to find.
Looks ready for a step up to 6f on her handicap debut here, having looked short of pace at 5f on all three starts. Not progressing at present and now headgear added, but early days and may yet do better.
