14:20 Southwell Sun 12 January 2020
In the thick of the action when finishing fifth in the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle (2m) in June; well below that level of form since; won by 6L on his only previous Southwell appearance (1m4f) - in this race in 2018.
Idled when beating Tynecastle Park by a neck here (1m6f) in late November; 3lb higher today after an unsuccessful jaunt to France (Le Croise-Laroche) latest.
Beat Seven Clans by ¾L (Angel Lane a close third) when making a winning stable/handicap debut over C&D (20-1); beaten from this revised mark at Lingfield (found the track too sharp?) subsequently.
Has gone from strength to strength since upped in trip; brought her overall Southwell record to 2 from 4 when readily justifying favouritism here (1m3f) on New Year's Day - beat Crimson King by 2½L; 6lb higher; has related C&D form with Rasaasy.
Beaten just once in four starts at Southwell (C&D) and that was when sent off 6-5f for a Class 4 contest in October; 9lb higher than when beating J Gaye by 7L here (Class 5) three starts back; is facing a tougher task at this level (Class 3).
