Form is rather patchy, and probably best judged on latest stayiong-on seventh in a 6f Ffos Las nursery last week. Held by Capla Gilda on that running, but may do better back at 7f.
Claimed out of Marco Botti's yard for £10,000 last month, and that purchase paid immediate dividends when she won a 6f nursery at Ffos Las. Ought to be hard to beat if in the same form here.
All three runs have come in sellers/claimers, showing ability but looking modest. Good jockey booked, and possible that he will improve for blinkers, but does need to.
Better effort to date when 5¾L sixth of 7 to Captain Lancelot in apprentice claimer at Clairefontaine last time. Wore cheekpieces there, and now tried in more severe headgear, but must improve in any case.
Improved on earlier efforts when sixth in a 6f novice at Newbury in June, and ill at ease on the track on nursery debut at Catterick last time. Place claims if bouncing back.
First foal of a longstanding maiden. Beaten a long way in an AW novice at Chelmsford on debut, and even a drop to selling level doesn't make her of particular interest.
Made late headway when sixth on debut at Kempton in May, but hasn't been able to build on that promise in two subsequent starts. Drop in class gives her a squeak, but she needs to get away on terms to have a chance.
One of a trio representing local yard in this seller, but has shown only poor form in two minor events at Yarmouth, and passed over on balance.
