- Asfordby Handicap (Class 5)
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Back to the promise of her two novice wins last September with a couple of very good quick ground seconds. Back in class from last run but this ground represents a complete unknown.
Sole win from nine starts came on the fibresand off 1lb higher. Dropped in trip and class but plenty to answer after being tailed off on first try on heavy ground on season reappearance.
One win from seven came in a fibresand novice but matched that level with a best run on turf when second on soft ground at Haydock in a truly run race. Has more to offer in these conditions and a contender.
Suited by soft ground when keeping on well despite hanging for a 6f Haydock success and a second win from 11 starts. Up in class and down in trip may make this a bit tougher and not quite at her best on previous two tries on heavy.
Showed big improvement on season and handicap debut when winning at Haydock (Scale Force second). Seemingly enjoyed the switch to a soft surface and won going away. Up 8lb but a lot more to offer now.
Won on good on his final start of 2018 and gelded since. Very disappointing in four starts this time around and unproven in these conditions. Hard to fancy at present.
Last Year's Winner
