Form & Verdict

Winner in Ireland on her racecourse debut but beaten on her next 14 starts; she has threatened for this yard in 2022, however, including when second of 14 at Windsor four weeks ago; that form has taken some knocks, though, and a 2lb rise might scupper her chances.

Yet to win in eight starts and she wasn't at her best last time; on the plus side, she has run well here in the past and is now 4lb lower than for her Wolverhampton second in August; won't be far away if the addition of blinkers does the trick.

His three wins (one of them here) have come over further and he dropped away tamely having made the running when dropped to 1m at Salisbury in August; not a forlorn hope if bouncing back but cheekpieces return today and they haven't helped him in the past.
