She has been dropped 2lb by the handicapper since and is one of three rides on the afternoon for Harry Cobden, who returned to the saddle at Newton Abbot and Worcester earlier this month, respectively, for the first time since the injury he sustained at Liverpool in April.

“Last year was fantastic and it was a shame the season ended the way it did, but I’ve had a nice break and I’m really looking forward to doing what I know best again.”
