- 1m 4f 14y, Standard
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Fibresand
Placed on three occasions during 2018 (6f-1m3f); well beaten on sole Flat start in 2019 (6f, soft); returns from wind surgery wearing a newly applied hood; a rare mount on the Flat for Lucy Alexander.
Comfortably held (beaten 8½L) when a keeping on second over 1m2½f at Savenay (France) in June; has left H.A. Pantall since to join Mick Easterby (for 4,500gns); worthy of market inspection over a new trip on GB debut.
In fine fettle of late, simply paying the price deep inside the final furlong for a forceful ride over C&D (third) last week; 2lb higher with Dougie Costello taking over in the saddle from claimer Gabriele Malune.
11-race maiden (formerly with Richard Hannon); was making her third start for Mick Appleby when finishing just over 4L third to Cold Harbour (Loose Chippings second) over C&D earlier this month.
12-race maiden with very modest form (5f-7f); steps up noticeably in trip on return from a 120-day absence; makes no appeal whatsoever; look elsewhere for the solution.
Nine-race maiden (0-3 AW); placed on a couple of occasions on turf (1m-1m2f); 3-1f when unable to reach the leaders in finishing fourth (beaten 2L) in a 1m2f Leicester seller (heavy) last week.
Sprung a real surprise when winning from outside of the handicap at Thirsk (1m4f, good to firm) four weeks ago - the third has won over hurdles since; 5lb higher on Fibresand debut; certainly isn't discounted.
