On a long losing run and although she has run some fair races in defeat this year, including over 1m2f here four weeks ago, she looks vulnerable for win purposes once more.

J: Ben Robinson

T: Brian Ellison

Infrequent winner (3-39), who is not easy to predict but her last success came off this mark and she caught the eye with her strong finish over C&D (fifth of 11) last Thursday; ran into some trouble at a crucial stage in the race and she's an interesting contender.

Two-time turf winner who has also run with distinction at this track; not beaten far at Redcar on Sunday (and may have finished closer with a clear run) but he didn't look an easy ride and he will need them to go off hard back at 1m.
