All turf wins, including two fillies' handicaps this year, on good ground but she has form on soft; close third in similar event at Ripon most recently; likely player if taking well to added visor.

Her three handicap wins have all come from the front, including twice round here; back in form last Tuesday (9.7f; again didn't lead) but there's not much wiggle room off this mark and an easy 1m on quicker ground is a bare minimum now.

Record of 2-3 on AW this year, looking better than ever; form dipped behind Eponina at Nottingham but this dual turf winner could bounce back from that.

Made all to claim her tenth career victory in a 1m handicap at Nottingham (good to firm) in June and then ran just as well in defeat; 6f was on the sharp side when below par last time but again looks vulnerable tackling a bunch of 3yos.

Five-time winner who returned to form with a second at Salisbury (1m, good to firm) when perhaps in front too soon; goes on all ground; considered.

J: Rob Hornby

Ended last season in career-best form, winning twice over 8.5f at Epsom (good to firm) in cheekpieces; will be fine over today's trip but needs to find even more to overcome current mark, and subsequent 229-day break may have checked her momentum.

Beaten a head into second of 13 at Kempton (7f, AW) and she was headstrong from a wide draw at Wolverhampton; could be interesting on turf/handicap debut.

Similar type to Noble Sovereign, being a six-race maiden who has some respectable form; ties in closely with David's Diva on Kempton running two starts ago and that effort puts her in the picture.
