Form & Verdict
Closely matched with Gweedore on Ayr form in early July; the cards dropped perfectly in major 1m handicap at Goodwood last week (well drawn, got the breaks) but he scored decisively all the same; gets into this 0-90 event despite now having a mark of 95; has to be feared, for all that he's conceding 5lb all round.

Form & Verdict
In-form filly; got up close home at Leicester (good to soft) on penultimate start, then produced another strong finish at Newmarket (good to firm) where she almost collared a rival who got first run; well suited by a stiff 7f and commands respect.

Form & Verdict
Has a record of 6-13 on AW compared to just 2-17 on turf; below par in Haydock handicap (Class 2) returned to this sphere five weeks ago; drops back in grade but the percentage call is to oppose him; unproven on good to firm ground.

5 yo Filly

OR: 90

Form & Verdict
Produced a career-best performance in 6f handicap here (on fast ground) last month, taking strike-rate to a respectable 8-22; major contender on these terms, provided she's as effective over a stiff 7f; her 7f wins have come on easy AW courses.

Form & Verdict
Got no sort of run at Goodwood last week when bidding for a 6f hat-trick; better than ever otherwise this term and remains of interest; now goes back up in trip on a stiff track but she's 1-1 over 7f (2yo maiden win); shortlisted.
