Form & Verdict

Largely consistent filly who won over both 1m4f (good to firm) and 1m5f (good) earlier in the season, the latter off today's mark; possibly not ideally suited by soft ground on her last two starts; acts on Tapeta and has run well here in the past; player.

Yet to win over this far but she stays the trip and is fully effective on Tapeta; yet to get going after a summer break but this return to Class 6 company on AW should be in her favour; not discounted.

Unable to get threaten on two recent turf starts, following a break, but her best performances have come on AW and she's on a competitive mark on form as recent as April; effective over C&D and she's a possible player.

Form & Verdict

Former Jessica Harrington inmate who has been unplaced in nine starts; even so, she started favourite on debut for this trainer at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) last month, weakening into fourth; well treated on some Irish form and return to this trip should play to her strengths.

Dual AW winner, including over C&D last October; 5lb higher than when scoring at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta; first-time cheekpieces) in March; returned from a break when going close in an amateur riders' event at Wolverhampton (1m6f, Tapeta) recently; up 1lb and looks a big player back at 1m4f.

Form & Verdict

Broke his duck on debut for yard at Catterick (1m6f, good to soft) in April; respectable effort over C&D in May but has been well below that level in three other starts this season and was tailed off here (16.5f) on latest.
