Half-sister to same owner's smart sprinter Maid In India and Listed winner Love Spirit. Hasn't progressed since a maiden win at Windsor a year ago, but still early days with her, and family tend to improve with age.
Ended her time with James Given by winning at Kempton in March. Absence since must be a concern, but still in same ownership, and claims if running to same level for powerful new yard.
Stepped up on earlier efforts this season when overcoming a slow start to win at Thirsk last time. Runner-up won next time, and she remains well treated, for all consistency is not her forte..
Little impact in qualifying, but has improved markedly in two handicap starts, scoring at Goodwood (6f) and Haydock (5f). Still rough round the edges, but likely to prove herself much better than her current mark if her temperament holds.
Has run to a similar level in all three starts, and again ridden with an eye to the future when fourth of 13 to Aljari in a 6f novice at Wolverhampton last time. Will improve, but the handicapper has taken no chances.
Ran well enough over 7f at Redcar in June to suggest she would be effective from this mark, but hasn't replicated that form in two subsequent starts, and is easy enough to swerve as a result.
Well held on first two starts for current yard before popping up at a big price at Thirsk last time. Suited by drop to 6f there, but needs to show she can back that up in this much more competitive arena.
Best recent form when a close third at Wolverhampton on her penultimate outing. Saves most of her best efforts for that venue, however, and well beaten back on turf last time.
Improved on the form she's shown in novices when visored and 3¼L fourth of 17 to Victory Rose on handicap debut over C&D last time. Could well take another step up, and shortlisted from 1lb lower mark now.
Running perfectly creditably in low-grade handicaps this summer, but struggling to get her head in front, and makes scant appeal up in grade from out of the weights.
