Form & Verdict

Hasn't built on her successful Kempton debut (7f, Polytrack) a year ago, though she probably needed the run after nine months off when last of five on handicap debut at Newmarket (7f, good) in June; longer trip shouldn't be an issue and return to the AW may help, but she does have something to prove.

Useful filly who was runner-up off this mark over 1m at Kempton in October; has performed with credit in Listed events at Dundalk (1m) and Deauville (9.5f) since; another who could be in the shake-up.

Form & Verdict

Narrowly made a winning debut at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) in February and ran well when third of six in a valuable novice at Ascot (1m, good) in May, but not seen since a laboured effort in a Goodwood Listed contest (1m2f, good) later in month; could bounce back on handicap debut and market revealing.

AW debut winner; drawn a blank in her six outings since but largely progressive and she had the reopposing Rousay 2l behind in third when an excellent second in 1m2f Newmarket Group 3 four weeks ago; a reproduction of that form should see her go close at the least.

Progressive in first two starts as a 2yo before out of her depth in the Rockfel; only just beaten on her return/handicap debut at Newbury (7f, good to firm) in June, but finished in midfield in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot later in month and needs to improve on that; half-sister to a Polytrack bumper winner.

These conditions suited when going close in a seven-runner Newbury handicap (7f, good to firm) on reappearance but limited progress in two runs over 1m since, on turf (at Royal Ascot) and the AW; needs extra to keep pace with some of these progressive types.

Made a successful return at Beverley (7f, good to soft) in April and ran well on a couple of occasions subsequently; something to prove after heavy defeats the last twice, but half-sister and dam both AW winners so not impossible she could bounce back on the new surface.

Form & Verdict

Tapeta winner (at Newcastle) who has been running well since headgear was applied, especially when placed in her last three starts on turf; three of her last four outings on the AW have been in Listed company so she should find this a bit easier, but she still has plenty on against the 3yos.

Three wins this year, the first two at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) and a convincing success at Nottingham (1m, good to firm) in June; probably put up an even better effort when second of 11 at Ascot (1m, good to soft) last month (fourth and fifth won their next starts) and respected despite another 2lb rise.
