Form & Verdict

Both wins have come with some ease underfoot, latterly game in taking a soft-ground handicap on the July course; this will take more winning but she's only been raised the 2lb, so a case can be made.

J: Shane Kelly

T: Pam Sly

A well-held third in this 12 months ago after winning a Listed race at Doncaster, in which she was no match for a subsequent Group 2 winner in this year's renewal; could strip fitter for that outing and a repeat of last year's peak efforts in a Group 3 at Epsom and the Group 1 Falmouth wouldn't see her far away; dangerous to pass over.

Unbeaten in blinkers with three wins at about 1m, on good and heavy ground; brought up the hat-trick by the skin of his teeth at Epsom but he did well to win at all after interference and he'll probably go close again off 4lb higher; drop back to 7f unlikely to bother him.

Form & Verdict

All runs at 7f; his first since arriving from Ireland when justifying short-priced favouritism in a Kempton maiden but never travelled with any real purpose when only seventh on his handicap debut over C&D in May; the good to firm ground may have been against him and he's now gelded, so entitled to show more this time.

Appeared to take a big step forward when hammering eight rivals at Southwell (7f AW) but only third when looking well-in with a penalty at Kempton (stays 1m); 4lb higher for this and connections have claimed 7lb the last twice, so he has more on his plate.

Form & Verdict

Confined to sprinting so far, winning a novice at two and decisively taking a handicap on the July course this summer; it's unlikely that it was just the 6lb rise that found her out when nowhere near as good on her return visit, but she needs to bounce back and prove her stamina over this far.
