All runs at 5f; held up in both her nurseries but finished well to be second at Windsor and first at Yarmouth (good to soft); 5lb higher but Saffie Osborne rides again and 6f looks sure to suit.

Form dipped at the Doncaster St Leger meeting (soft) but has a solid record otherwise in handicaps and may well bounce back; both wins on good to soft; placed over C&D two outings ago.

Won Class 4 nurseries at Yarmouth (5f) and Chepstow (6f) on good to soft ground this summer; creditable third behind a well-treated rival at Windsor four weeks ago (good to firm); today's extra yardage should be within range but she'll need a clear personal best to win.

Got up late at Yarmouth (5f, good to soft) on second nursery start and made it 2-2 under Saffie Osborne at Chepstow (6f, good to soft) last Thursday; had 3l to spare on that first crack at 6f and a 6lb penalty may not stop her today; has shown promise on good and good to firm ground.

Form & Verdict

Won a couple of Class 5s (7f+ novice on good to firm/7f nursery on good) before struggling in a soft-ground Listed event at Sandown (22-1); this is more realistic but current mark asks questions of her.

Won two in a row on turf (7f/7.4f) last July; mixed form in six subsequent runs but she had a tough task in a Listed event at Newmarket (6f, heavy) when last seen in November; now switches to AW after a break but she still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form and needs watching in market.

Best two runs have come on soft ground, finishing second in a Brighton maiden and Ffos Las nursery (6f); the winner was much too good last time but he'll be at home under the conditions.

Just missed out in a 6f maiden here in June (soft) and also finished second at Ffos Las in July (Class 6 nursery); another fair run at Chepstow last month; would be receiving 13lb from Lieutenant Rascal in a handicap but doubt there will be that much between them.

Form & Verdict

Wetherby winner who was down the field in the Albany and again struggled on her nursery debut back at Ascot (6f, good); down only 2lb and she probably needs to improve for the blinkers.

Dual fast-ground winner (5f maiden/6f novice) who probably bumped into an unexposed improver when duly penalised at Beverley (5f, good to soft); doesn't look thrown in for her nursery debut.

Unraced on soft/heavy; produced form figures of 2112 at maiden/novice level, mostly over 5f; stretched by 6f at Chepstow (handicap debut) when last seen; respected back down in trip and wearing first-time headgear; trainer has won the last two runnings of this race.

Ran poorly last time but his Hamilton sixth (6f, good) has worked out quite well and being gelded could help, as might cheekpieces; note the market on handicap debut.

160,000euros yearling; made a respectable start to his career when fourth of seven at Ripon (5f, good to firm; 6-1) a fortnight ago; steps up in trip, which is likely to suit, and his trainer won this race twice in succession (2018 and 2019) in recent times.
