Races freely and exaggerated waiting tactics ultimately found her out when a closing third at Beverley (good to firm); this place could suit her but she's up in grade from Class 6 company.

Similar RPRs in her three qualifying runs (7f/1m); this mark isn't obviously lenient but handicaps should see her in a better light and stall 2 will come in handy.

Has struggled to get the better of the handicapper since his two wins (6f/7f) last summer and the visor hasn't done much for him on his last three starts; remains in the same ownership despite a change of stable; cheekpieces tried this time.

Won from the front at Beverley (7.4f, soft) four weeks ago and had a bit in hand; it could have been the fast ground as opposed to an 8lb rise that contributed to a lesser show at York; could go well.

Won 6f AW novice last September; this represents a welcome drop in grade after running respectably in strong 6f handicaps (soft/good to firm) and she's bred to get this far; stall 8 not ideal but she needs considering.

0-9 on turf for Andrew Balding but 1-1 on the AW, the win coming at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) in September 2022; makes her stable debut in a first-time tongue-tie after 224 days off having changed hands for 12,000gns in December; market useful, though likely she needs further than this now; stable also runs Conquistador.

The form of his soft-ground win at Nottingham has been franked (1m) and it was his first run on fast ground when below par at York; conditions won't be so lively here and respected despite a tricky draw.
