Form & Verdict
Showed some useful 2yo form for Richard Fahey but has become disappointing this year; will appreciate today's drop in grade but was last of six in 7f handicap here last month and needs to up her game.

Delivered on earlier promise when winning four-runner Chepstow novice (7f, good) in June but safely held in two subsequent handicaps over that trip; moves up to 1m with a point to prove.

Form & Verdict
Generally very disappointing since winning Thirsk maiden (7f, good to firm) in first-time cheekpieces in April but seemed to have turned a corner when very respectable fourth in Chelmsford handicap (7f, AW; no headgear) last month and will play a big role if in similar form again here; hooded for first time.

Form & Verdict
A maiden after six starts and would meet all of today's rivals on better terms in a handicap but put in good front-running shift when fourth at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) recently and this free-goer may benefit from today's drop back in trip.
