Dual turf winner (6f/7f) as a 2yo who gained reward for some consistent efforts in defeat when winning at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) 16 days ago, getting the better of a couple of last-time-out winners; just 2lb higher and very much respected.

Form & Verdict

Her last four wins have all come at this track, most recently over this trip three weeks ago on her first run for six months; the field finished in a heap on that occasion but she was full value for the win, picking up well despite having to be switched to the outside in the straight; 1lb rise not insurmountable; solid candidate.

Form & Verdict

7f Polytrack winner for Darryll Holland last summer; overcame a very slow start to win over the extended 1m here on last week's stable debut; speed rather than stamina the key to that win and she shouldn't be hindered by returning to 7f; will need to be more alert at the stalls though.

Habitual slow-starter; came from well back to win a 1m handicap at Kempton last month but a similarly patient ride didn't pay dividends last time; looks up against it from 5lb out of the weights.

Again blew the start but Mia Nicholls (on board for the first time) didn't panic and they did well to score given how slowly the race was run over C&D last week; races off just 3lb higher, but jockey claims 2lb less than last week; key player.

Her only win came at odds of 1-8 in a three-runner novice in July 2021 (5f, good); handicapper in control last year; returns from three months off at a lower level and with cheekpieces added; worth a market check.

Ran out the easy winner of a 0-70 fillies' handicap over C&D last summer off a 6lb lower mark; not disgraced in either run last month but she will need a bit more if she's to come out on top.

Poor strike-rate and she struggles for consistency; well beaten at Southwell last week, albeit in a better race, and she is still to totally convince that this trip is what she needs.

Belatedly added to her 2021 nursery win with narrow success at Southwell (6f; first-time tongue-tie) last month; this race is much more competitive, though, and she needs to prove she can cope with the drop back to 5f.
