Form & Verdict

Winner of four of her last seven starts (7f-1m), most recently a 7.5f handicap at Lingfield (good to firm) two weeks ago; won on the nod on that occasion but showed plenty of determination and a 2lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Handicapped to the hilt since winning three fast-ground handicaps during early summer but she continues to run well and again gave it her all last week at Bath (1m, good); solid chance once more, though ground softer than good to soft would spell danger.

Paid the price with the handicapper for three fast-ground wins in early summer but has generally done well since and ran another honest race last time at Ripon (1m, good); hard to knock.

J: Joe Fanning

Went up 10lb for three fast-ground wins in early summer and has generally run well off her revised mark since, usually from the front; fair chance she's able to get her own way, in which case she'll be dangerous, with the drying weather in her favour.

Form & Verdict

Three creditable runs since handicapping, including twice this year, perhaps doing a bit too much early when a weakening fifth of 13 at Windsor 19 days ago; drops into a Class 6 and she's one to take seriously.

Stepped up on his novice form when a close second at Chepstow on his handicap debut two weeks ago (1m, good to firm; made the running); 1lb higher mark to deal with but still has potential.

Came up well short in AW novice events, then had gelding operation; has looked better in turf handicaps (over 1m) the last twice, finishing second at Chepstow (behind a subsequent scorer) then third at Bath; solid claims in this ordinary maiden race.

Half-brother to four winners and he's out of German 7f Listed winner; well held at biggish prices in three AW novice events (7f/1m) during the winter but he's been gelded since and could show a lot more now switched to a handicap on his return; needs a close look.

Not built on his early promise and twice comfortably held in handicaps (1m, soft; 1m2f, good); hood fitted the last twice is left off and he drops back in distance, but comes with risks.

Improving with experience, beaten a neck into third behind Gone at Lingfield two weeks ago; would have probably won there had he kept straight in the closing stages and he remains capable of better.
