- Dale Hall & Hickman Associates Fillies' Handicap (Class 4)
- 1m 3f 179y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Won back-to-back races at Doncaster (1m2f maiden/1m4f handicap) when there was cut in the ground last summer and was not disgraced in a French Listed contest next time. Needs to step up on her Windsor reappearance from May. Stable quiet.
Won over a similar trip in a Doncaster handicap (good to firm) last month, when 4lb lower. Well held in better company over 1m5½f last time. This is not as tough, she is unexposed and back over this trip, she remains of interest.
Broke her duck at the seventh attempt at Lingfield (1m4f, AW) last time, staying on well to score by 2L. Up 7lb for that, so more needed here. Acts on good to firm. Improvement not ruled out, though not the most consistent so far.
Scored over 1m (soft) at Haydock last year and added a 1m2½f Chester handicap (good to firm) to her CV in June. Was beaten 2L from this mark last time, so more needed, but not fully exposed and nor is she ruled out.
Bolted up by 5L, making all at Catterick (1m4f, good) last time to win a 0-70. This is significantly tougher, after a 6lb rise, but there was plenty to like about how she did it and a follow-up is not ruled out.
