Form & Verdict

Did it well when making a successful return/handicap debut at Windsor (11.4f, soft) in May, but only third of seven at Goodwood (1m4f, good) the following month; still open to further progress and any further rain would be a plus; major chance.

Won on soft ground this season over about 1m4f at Windsor in May and Chester in August; made the running when tailed off back at Chester (good to soft) on latest outing, albeit in Listed race; chance if bouncing straight back and new trip is plausible on best efforts.

Proved suited by the return to a slower surface in C&D handicap (form has substance) six weeks ago, scoring comfortably and taking record on soft ground to 311; has a lot to find on ratings but chance would improve granted similar going; still unexposed.

Form & Verdict

Handy sort who comes into this 0-8, but has been placed in her last three starts as when third of seven at Leicester (1m4f, soft) 11 days ago (winner has gone in again since); bit more needed from this mark, but no surprise if she gives another good account.

Form & Verdict

Twice first past the post last year, but demoted on the first occasion; has been campaigned over further of late including when second of seven here (2m, good) in June, but his latest sixth of ten (1m6f, soft) back at this venue does leave him with a bit to prove.

Form & Verdict

Veteran who is a regular around here including two wins over 1m2f (does stay this far); tongue-tie given a go and any further easing of the ground not a problem, and although his losing run is up to 26 he can't be dismissed; stable won this in 2018 and 2020.

Form & Verdict

Both wins came on the AW at Lingfield (1m2f/1m4f) last year; not for the first time appeared to find 1m6f stretching her at Sandown 11 days ago so the return to this trip should suit; has run well on good to soft but she was well beaten in one go on soft.

Six-race maiden, but ran well when beaten a length into second of six at Wolverhampton (1m6f, AW) last month (third has won since); cheekpieces given a go and he needs to build on that performance back in trip returned to turf, but a player if he can.
