Ex-Richard Hannon; ran best race (on third start for this trainer) when grabbed late on over 1m4f here last month; drops back in trip, so must possess a realistic chance with Oisin Murphy remaining on board.

Didn't show much in five starts for Richard Hannon last year and she's been well held in both runs (1m/1m2f) for new yard this winter; mark has bottomed out now and she needs this step up to 1m4f to make a difference.

Pretty exposed 19-race maiden; has shown that he handles this course (four second-place finishes) but was fairly laboured latest and is always likely to be vulnerable in a finish given such a positive run style.

Off the mark at Southwell (1m, classified stakes; Skyblue Expert second) in January and has held her form relatively well in similar low-grade handicaps since; as a half-sister to a Czech 1m2f-1m6f winner, she's well worth a try over this 9.5f trip; on the shortlist.

Clear improvement for the step up in trip (handicap debut) when beaten by a short head at Chelmsford (1m2f, Class 6; 8-1) in November; the winner of that race has thrived since, so she must rate as a live contender assuming that she's ready to roll after a five-month absence.
