Form & Verdict

A maiden after seven runs and untested beyond 6f but her third of 13 at Thirsk (6f, good) on Friday was a good effort and she can play a significant role here if suited by the longer trip.

Did her racing for Karl Burke (picked up for £8,000 out of a seller) over shorter; finished lame on her comeback; drying weather would help but she'd be hard to recommend even then.

Did her racing for Karl Burke, from whom she was picked up out of a seller (beaten-favourite) for £8,000 last autumn, over shorter; stamina would be a worry on the forecast ground on comeback (well beaten the only time she's run on going slower than good).

Form & Verdict

Campaigned mainly as a sprinter but won when upped to 7f at Epsom last month and was creditable second under penalty at Brighton (also good to firm) on Friday; has slightly further to go here but is 2lb lower than last time; likely contender.

Well short of her best last season and she made a low-key start for her new stable at Lingfield 11 weeks ago (7f, AW; 150-1); too much to prove for comfort.

Three turf wins for the Channon yard but she's not seen much action since her last win (September 2022) and was beaten around 10l in her three runs last year; returns after another break and she needs to get back on track for new trainer.

Dual winner in plating company for Rae Guest this year (7f/7.6f) but safely held in three handicaps for new stable (6f-1m); last week's C&D defeat on heavy ground is not viewed harshly but she still has something to prove.

Form & Verdict

Low-mileage gelding who was held up in rear from stall 14 of 14 on recent handicap debut at Lingfield (7f, AW; first-time hood/tongue-tie) and still had a lot to do before staying on strongly from 1f out to snatch third; needs to learn to settle better but still has potential.

Form & Verdict

Seemingly boosted by first-time blinkers when bouncing back to form at Salisbury (7f, good to firm; well backed) in June; subsequent 2lb rise ought to be manageable but he disappointed at Chepstow last month (reportedly unsuited by the undulating track) and is not an easy one to predict.
