Irish-trained mare; three wins last summer (1m5f/1m6f) and looked better than ever on last week's reappearance when third of six in Down Royal Listed race (2m, good); it's possible she's flattered by that latest form but if taken at face value she's well treated now back in a handicap; respected.

Goes into the unknown stamina-wise but this progressive 4yo has an excellent 7-14 strike-rate in handicaps and the way he has stayed on to win over 12.4f here and 1m4f at Lingfield this season suggests he could be suited by the step up in trip; 2-2 here and he's a major player if seeing it out.

Dual-purpose performer who impressed when winning five-runner handicap at Kempton (2m, AW) last June and on that evidence this 6lb higher mark might not be beyond him; may have needed his recent reappearance run but he's now been well beaten on his last two Flat starts so has questions to answer.

Second to Appier on two of last three starts, on the first occasion over 12.4f here, and in between those he won by 2l at Lingfield (1m5f); it's possible the step up in trip will prompt further improvement from this progressive 4yo, for whom cheekpieces replace the visor worn the last twice.
