T: Tim Easterby

His last win was 12 months ago but that was over C&D and he's finished runner-up at Pontefract and Redcar (both at 5f on soft) in last two starts; on same mark as for both those runs and he's respected with blinkers added.

Doesn't win too often (4-30) but 5f on soft ground is what he wants and he saw it out well to finish second last time at Pontefract; that was in a higher grade so his claims are crystal clear here.

Defied higher marks twice on home soil in 2021 and won in Bahrain last December; 0-12 this year but posted encouraging efforts the last twice, latest when 1l second at York (soft) last Friday; could well go one better.

Hasn't won in Britain since 2021 but some useful efforts in 2023, including here; needs things to go better at the start than they sometimes do if he's to play a part.

J: Mark Winn

T: David O’Meara

Has drawn a blank this season but he retains a good chunk of ability, running well at Haydock in June off a 5lb higher mark and beaten under 4l in a hot York sprint latest; capable of a big run but slow starts have been a feature the last twice and that sounds a note of caution.

Five-time turf winner, the latest of them over 5f here last summer off 2lb higher; 6f on heavy ground might just stretch her stamina.

J: Paul Mulrennan

5f on soft ground looks ideal for her and last season's two wins both came off higher marks than today's; last month's return at Southwell (6f) was encouraging and she's more appealing than many.

Quite consistent since winning a Class 4 handicap on the Lingfield AW in November, holding his form despite the visor replacing cheekpieces in his last four appearances; dual turf winner but perhaps at his best on the AW and he's unraced here.
