Ran to a useful level when runner-up on first two starts at Newmarket in the summer, but ought to have made it third time lucky at Kempton last time, looking in charge until headed late. Opening mark stiff enough on balance, but open to improvement.
Just 1lb higher than when winning over 1m at Newmarket in June. Back to her best when third to Riviera Nights at Ascot (7f) last time, and should be competitive again.
Ran well when third in a 1m novice at Newmarket last month, and didn't need to improve to land a similar race at Kempton next time. Vulnerable now handicapping unless she can find further improvement.
Seemed to find this mark beyond here at Goodwood in July, but got back on the up when second to Shawaaheq at Lingfield last time, for all that came in a falsely run race. Needs to prove she can back it up.
Best effort in qualifying when making all to score at Lingfield last time by 2 lengths from Sloane Garden. More to come from this improving filly, and the handicapper hasn't been too brutal.
In the frame on both handicap starts over 1¼m, and didn't have to improve when landing a 1m novice at Bath last time. Must do better now back to handicap company, but that victory should bolster her confidence.
Finally put it all together when successful from the front at Windsor in August, and far from disgraced when third of four behind Irreverent at Thirsk last time. Vulnerable to improving sorts, though.
