Not really kicked on in handicap company since winning a 1m3f Kempton maiden fillies' stakes (20/1) in March; feasible that the return to the AW will help, but yet to conclusively demonstrate that she stays 1m6f.
Looked to be a filly to follow when chasing home subsequent Newcastle winner Cross My Mind at Windsor (1m3.5f) in early July, but not quite strong enough to justify favouritism off this mark at Doncaster latest; up in trip with cheekpieces applied.
Raced exclusively on the AW, winning early season races at Lingfield (1m2f) and Southwell (1m4f), and broadly running to a similar level on all three starts since; needs this new trip to bring about additional improvement.
Unexposed three-year-old by Camelot who looks to be well worth trying over this longer trip; her best effort so far came when runner-up to Seinesational at Windsor in June (1m3.5f); competitive off just 2lb higher.
Has struggled so far over shorter trips, but is lowly rated and it's entirely possible that this longer trip is exactly what she requires (her dam was a 2m winner); that said, others are far more persuasive on balance.
Yet to threaten to break the maiden tag after 11 starts, and has to be viewed as an outsider here despite a gradual ease in the weights; not considered.
Stayed on from off the pace on handicap debut (2m+) here last month to finish 3L fourth to Something Brewing; whilst that was a major step forward, this drop back in trip is unlikely to prove advantageous.
