2lb higher than when winning for the second time over C&D in April (beat La Cumparsita by ¾L); her October C&D fourth (beaten 3L) to Suitcase 'N' Taxi has worked out well since; fair chance.
Fairly consistent at Wolverhampton (7f) of late without necessarily threatening to strike; holds an entry in a Classified Selling Stakes there on Friday evening (5.15pm) and would carry a penalty if successful; watch this space for updates.
Nine-race maiden; all three starts on the AW have come on Tapeta at Newcastle; started 4-1f when fourth of 14 to the 50-1 shot Dodgy Bob (7f) latest.
Weakened from the two furlong pole on Fibresand debut here (1m) in November - finished sixth of 14 to Motahassen (The Retriever second, Mister Freeze fifth); reappears sporting a visor; 0-6 career.
No win since March 2018 (C&D); started 7-2f when only fifth of 14 to Motahassen (The Retriever second) over 1m here in November; is thought capable of better over 7f; enters calculations on various form lines with Break The Silence.
Placed (third to Al Batal) in a C&D selling handicap on his penultimate start; an unflattering 0-26 on the AW; has clearly had more than his fair share of chances.
Hasn't shown a great deal of positive AW form previously (0-6); 1-19 on turf (with that win coming for James Tate way back in June 2017); cheekpieces are applied on first start since October; basic market check needed in a poor race.
11-race maiden; beaten 7L when runner-up to Motahassen over 1m here on his penultimate start (Mister Freeze and Adashelby behind); somewhat reverted to type at Newcastle (7f) subsequently; generally unconvincing.
