Both wins have come over 7f, most recently on this course off this mark last summer, but she was well held when last seen in September and now returns without her usual headgear; others appeal a bit more.

Currently 4-13 over C&D, including a win in this race last year off a 2lb higher mark, and has notched all eight victories in the first half of the year; recent comeback here should have readied her for a repeat bid and she's shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage 5yo; much improved for the switch to handicaps this winter, best effort when winning over this trip at Newcastle just after Christmas; Marco Ghiani rides again and a 2lb rise is hardly excessive; major player.

Dropped in the weights for this yard and he showed his first sign that he may be ready to capitalise when third of 13 over 7f at Kempton last week (made the running; today's accessories tried for the first time); one to consider dropped further in grade.

Best effort this winter when third of 12 over C&D in January and he wasn't disgraced when dropped back to 6f 17 days ago; runs off a career-low mark and ought to make his presence felt.

None too consistent but he's in good form at present, coming from last to first under David Probert to score at Lingfield (1m) 19 days ago; returning to 7f should be fine but this is a stronger race and he's 5lb higher.

C&D winner but his last success was 19 months ago and he's been well held at Chepstow (1m/7f) in last two starts; cheekpieces are removed after one use and he needs to raise his game back on AW; one of three runnners for the yard.

Sole win for Roger Teal came at Wolverhampton (6f) last March; below par in three runs for this yard but last month's sixth of nine over this trip at Lingfield was a step in the right direction; Kempton debut; chance.
