Form & Verdict

Kept on for promising third in 7f AW novice in June on her third start and improved when a comfortable winner here on last month's handicap debut (7f, good to soft; unraced on softer); this unexposed, well-bred 3yo could have more to offer now back up to 1m and may well take a 7lb rise in her stride.

Completed a hat-trick in turf handicaps over 7f/1m in the summer and put up an even better effort when second of ten in a Group 3 at Doncaster (7f, good to soft) in September; disappointed when seventh of ten in a Listed contest at Ascot (7f, good) last month (behind two of these) and needs to bounce back from that now returned to the AW.

Acts on any ground; emphatic winner at the York Ebor festival, completing a handicap hat-trick; subsequently a good second, behind a useful filly who dictated the pace, in the Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster (7f); progressive 3yo who should continue to do well; respected.

Fast-improving filly who looked well ahead of the assessor since handicapping, most recently beating 17 rivals in emphatic style at the York Ebor festival when dropped back to 7f; versatile ground-wise; looks a potential Group performer and comes here on a roll; interesting upped in class.

Made the frame in two Listed races last year (1m/7f, good/good to soft) and she's well treated on that form; however, she hasn't hit the same heights this season and needs to raise her game; unproven on soft/heavy.

Fourth in this race last year; ran encouragingly behind Nigiri on worse terms at Haydock when last seen but that rival is progressive, whereas this filly is 0-10 since debut win; no certainty to reverse the placings.

Form & Verdict

Front-runner who was disappointing at Newbury (1m, soft) a fortnight ago when back from a 70-day break but this lightly raced 3yo is better than that and went close over today's C&D (good to soft) in May; won C&D novice last September and has run well on soft; could bounce back with bold bid.

Kept to slow turf by Clive Cox, from whom she was picked up for 40,000gns last October after a patchy 3yo campaign; may need some help from the handicapper but the market will be the best guide back from seven months off.

Her losing run is up to 13 but when mid-division at York last week her saddle reportedly slipped, and she went there on the back of two good second placings (1m, good to soft/soft); not ruled out.

Failed to win last year but several efforts of note; also ran well at Pontefract on last month's reappearance (1m, soft) and met some trouble when below par at Thirsk last week; stepping back up in trip won't hurt but others appeal more for win purposes.

Built upon the promise on her first two runs in spring (1m/1m2f, good/good to firm; both here) when readily winning recent C&D novice (heavy); clearly relished the conditions and there's plenty to like on handicap debut.

Readily beat her four rivals on third start last year (form has a bit of substance); another run on heavy ground just 15 days later can possibly excuse a disappointing handicap debut; interesting to see what the market makes of her back from 248 days off.
