She is making her seasonal debut and returns from a 23-week break. She is in a good space and is moving well. It is a distance short of her best against male company and she may just need this run. She will come on a lot with this run under the belt.

She races over 1000m against males and it is a very strong field. She is quite well-weighted in this field thanks to her 4kgs claiming apprentice, Kaidan Brewer. She may need the outing and this run will bring her on for the season to come.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:79. Below par in latest. Tries an extra furlong and has claims on consistent prior form.
