Made a winning return to the Flat when keeping on well to fend off Orin Swift by 1L at Ascot (2m, soft) in May; off since (91 days) but if the forecast heavy rain does arrive he'll enter the thinking off just 4lb higher.
Course winner (1m4f); arrives seeking the hat-trick following wins at Nottingham (1m6f) and Goodwood (2m), beat Orin Swift by 1L on the latter occasion; raised a mere 2lb and ought to be tough to beat if the forecast rain arrives.
Broke her maiden on turf when springing a 10-1 surprise in a Class 4 fillies' handicap at Chester (2m, good) latest; 5lb higher; form loosely boosted by the fourth-placed So Near So Farhh winning at Chepstow.
Doesn't win all that often (1-14) and was somewhat of a nearly horse as a 3yo; is yet to compete beyond 1m6f, which was the trip when a close second to Follow Intello here (good to soft) three weeks ago; 2lb higher.
2014 Northumberland Plate winner; snapped a barren spell when scoring at Ripon (2m, good to soft) in June; rock-sold since adding a further victory at Chester (2m, good to firm); a grand servant who deserves respect.
33-race maiden; hasn't competed on the Flat since November 2016, or anywhere at all since March 2018; holds no realistic chance from miles outside of the handicap; simply making up the numbers.
