Form has been in and out this season, but she made it three wins for the campaign (1m4f/1m2f) when landing an apprentice handicap at Ripon last Tuesday and she escapes a penalty today; has to be in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Beat a progressive rival to open her account at Carlisle (1m1f, good) three weeks ago, on sixth start; moves up in grade today but her winning performance is backed up by a good Topspeed figure and she might have more to offer over today's extra furlong.

Just held on to score at Hamilton (1m1f, good) in June and has posted some good efforts in defeat since, including recent Newcastle fourth (1m2f, AW), but needs new career-best to win this from just out of the weights.

Struck form and won twice on good ground in early August (1m/8.4f); below that level on last two outings but met traffic on first occasion and would have preferred a stronger gallop last time; unexposed over this trip; not ruled out.

Failed to win last year but several efforts of note; also ran well at Pontefract on last month's reappearance (1m, soft) and met some trouble when below par at Thirsk last week; stepping back up in trip won't hurt but others appeal more for win purposes.

0-14 but quite well handicapped on some of her spring form and may benefit from today's move back up in trip, having lacked the pace to challenge when sixth of eight at Carlisle (7.8f, good to firm) last week; runs again before 3lb drop takes effect.

Has run well in defeat over C&D the last twice, on good to soft most recently (has also run well on soft); however, she needs something extra today if she's to get off the mark at the 17th attempt.

Yet to win a race and not sure she achieved a huge amount when beaten only a length here 12 days ago; handicapper only slowly relenting and others make more appeal.

Form & Verdict

Overcame troubled passage to gain breakthrough win at Musselburgh (1m, good) in June and drew nicely clear to follow up at Hamilton (8.3f, good) in July; went up 8lb for the second success and had to settle for fifth on AW last time (1m2f) but further progress remains possible.
