Well bred filly with a stamina laden pedigree; 15/8f and lacked a change of gear when finishing fourth of six to The Corporal (beaten 3¾L) on handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) three weeks ago; AW debut.
From a Galileo mare (Between Us); made a pleasing start to her racing career when a close third (25-1) to Duneflower over 7f here last October; far less effective since but no surprise if new trip/handicapping shows her in a much better light.
C&D winner (July 2017); with the defection of Distant Chimes found a suitable opportunity to regain the winning thread at Redcar (1m6f), beating Jan De Heem by ½L; stable in form; 3lb higher.
Beaten just ½L at Carlisle (1m3f) on her penultimate start before taking a clear backward step at Yarmouth (1m6f); headgear (blinkers) on for AW debut seeking a return to form; can't be discounted.
Shamardal filly (170,000gns yearling); given an aggressive front-running ride by SDS on handicap debut at Windsor (1m3½f, good to firm) but was unable to fend off the favourite Cherry Cola; it's tough to apply those kind of tactics at Newcastle.
Returns to the Flat having tackled a couple of early season juvenile hurdles (Hexham and Market Rasen); hasn't achieved anywhere near enough to be playing a significant role in this contest; will struggle.
