Form & Verdict

Runner-up in two sellers, including when less than a length behind Pretence over C&D (meets her on the same terms), before winning a Catterick maiden (7f, good) 11 days ago; should go well on nursery debut from the inside stall if handling the likely softer conditions.

Made it three wins from her last four starts when landing Thirsk nursery (1m, good) under Brandon Wilkie a fortnight ago; the runner-up has franked that latest form and this filly has also won on soft ground; has a progressive profile and she's respected up 6lb for last time.

Won twice at 7f (Catterick maiden and Chester nursery) before finishing well held under a penalty at Newcastle where Brandon Wilkie was also aboard; this mark might be challenging unless she improves for going 1m.

Form & Verdict

Made all when making a successful stable debut in a Chelmsford maiden (6f, AW) in June and finished strongly having become outpaced when dead-heating for third on nursery debut at Newmarket (6f, good to soft) nine days ago; shouldn't have a problem with the extra furlong on pedigree and shortlisted.

Showed promise when fourth of 11 on her Lingfield debut (6f, AW) in June, but hasn't built on it in two starts over the same trip on turf; bred to appreciate the extra furlong and is well drawn, so can't be dismissed entirely on nursery debut.

Landed a seller over C&D (good) in June for her former yard and, having been picked up for £20,000 at the subsequent auction, put up an even better performance on stable debut when just beaten in a nursery back here (soft) last month (well clear of the third); up 6lb, but well drawn and high on the list.

Best effort on his third start when fourth of nine in a Nottingham novice (5f, good) last month; looked in need of further there and pedigree suggests the longer trip should be within range on nursery debut; considered.

Promising debut when third of 11 at Goodwood (6f, good) in May, but has twice disappointed since as when fifth of eight here (5f, soft) last month; bred to stay on the dam's side, but he needs to bounce back on nursery debut and has a wide draw.
