Form & Verdict

Placed behind a capable stablemate of On Borrowed Time & Kaaress in a Musselburgh maiden (7f) on her second start, but struggled to hold her own in a much deeper Class 2 contest at Newmarket (6f; 50-1) last time; cheekpieces are added for handicap debut.

Progressive in nurseries at up to 8.6f prior to good second in warm fillies' conditions race at Goodwood (7f, soft) in September; not quite at her best when third of six in French Listed race (7f, good to soft) last time and she's back down in trip here, but she's not short of pace and surplus stamina may well be a plus in the testing conditions; possible player.

Form & Verdict

Didn't achieve much in her first three starts (5f) and took a good while to find her stride before running on late into third on handicap debut here (6f, soft; 40-1) a fortnight ago; it's possible that she was slightly flattered, but tackling this extra furlong is seemingly a smart move.

Placed in all four nurseries last season (5f-7f); seemed to find 7f on heavy ground too taxing when a weakening sixth at Thirsk last month but certainly didn't run badly there and, with Oisin Murphy booked today, he remains of interest.

Form & Verdict

Slowly away and was never involved on her first two starts, but fared much better behind an odds-on favourite at Newcastle (7f, AW) six weeks ago; her dam was successful over 7f-1m, so she may yet have more to offer now switching to handicaps; stablemate of On Borrowed Time.

Ended last season with three straight (if narrow) wins over 8.6f/9.5f here in the autumn (demoted on the second occasion but reinstated later); no problem with the conditions, but returns from 160 days off from a 5lb higher mark; market may be informative.

Form & Verdict

Placed on two of her first three starts, including when runner-up to the fast improving Starlust at Chelmsford (6f, AW); didn't progress for the switch to handicapping (Haydock) and again was underwhelming in a 5f Wolverhampton maiden; something to prove on first attempt at 7f.

Placed on her first two starts (Wolverhampton & Beverley; 7f-7.5f); had a valid excuse - bumped at the start - for a laboured effort last time; while she doesn't necessarily appear to be an obvious winner in waiting, this is a modest affair in which to seek to make the transition to nurseries.

Form & Verdict

Won a Redcar seller (7f, good) on debut and, after a slight blip at Chester, was soon back in the winner's enclosure at Beverley (7.5f, soft; handicap debut, beating Oceanic Wonder); fine attitude, so a 4lb rise shouldn't be beyond the reach of her capabilities; stablemate of Kaaress.

Form & Verdict

Yet to threaten (0-4); she did receive a bump soon after the start on handicap debut at York (seventh of 12, beaten 5.75l) and this extra yardage - dam was a 1m winner - could possibly bring about some improvement; shouldn't be written off just yet; stablemate of Oceanic Wonder.

Form & Verdict

Didn't help herself by hanging continually left-handed when runner-up to On Borrowed Time at Beverley (7.5f, soft) 24 days ago; that was her best effort to date though and, despite a 2lb rise, she can renew rivalry on 2lb better terms (for less than 1l); stablemate of Amayretto.

While her recent C&D stable debut success seemingly wasn't anticipated (went off 33-1) there was no fluke about it, since she was only pushed out to lead close home, and a 2lb rise should be manageable.
