Remains 4lb higher than her last winning mark (Newcastle) and that looks to be a key factor in the booking of a 5lb claimer; met traffic problems when placed over an extended mile at Beverley last week.
Yet to win anywhere else other than on the AW at Wolverhampton (7f-1m½f); 1lb lower than when a staying on 2½L fifth of 14 to Fieldsman at Leicester (7f, good to soft) a fortnight ago.
Kept busy in recent days; made all to score by 3½L at Haydock (7f, good to firm) last week, and went down narrowly under a 6lb penalty in a driving finish at Ayr (6f) on Monday; is due a 3lb rise; should be on the premises.
Hasn't been seen at her best since springing a 40-1 shock in a 7f Wolverhampton novice in April; remains unexposed on turf (0-1), but the introduction of cheekpieces does raise obvious questions.
Off the mark at the ninth attempt when winning by ¾L at Carlisle (7f, good to soft) 24 days ago; missed an engagement at Haydock last week (ironically the race was won by old-foe Saikung); 3lb higher; should handle these conditions.
11-race maiden who is yet to demonstrate that she's capable of winning a race; however, she's slipped to a more workable mark since joining Mick Appleby and is far from a lost cause just yet; others preferred.
