Form & Verdict

Blinkered on last five starts and it seems to have done the trick judged on last four performances, winning under Alec Voikhansky on first occasion; showed she stays 1m2f on last two, the latest when she came from the back to be beaten a neck at Windsor on Monday; major player off the same mark.

Two handicap wins this season (1m and 1m2f, good to firm and good to soft); wouldn't judge her too harshly on her last two efforts (both on soft) and she's more appealing than many.

Two narrow wins this summer, over 1m at Leicester (good to firm) and 1m2f at Newbury (good to soft) and both under Alec Voikhansky; form dipped on soft going last Tuesday but she's a major player if bouncing back.

Form & Verdict

First and second last summer (1m2f, good) in her first two handicaps; has not lived up to that but fourth of ten at Newmarket (race she won last year) on latest start was respectable; not totally ruled out.

Dual winner over this trip on good/heavy, but finished well behind Ciara Pearl on last month's Lingfield return (1m2f, AW); needs a major step forward.

Successful in a 1m2f handicap at Bath when last seen in October (heavy); that form looks solid enough and a 2lb rise seems fair; six-month absence to defy on AW debut but likely to win more races this year.

Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden and his best form has come on AW but he was a respectable third on soft ground here (1m4f) on latest start; 1lb lower on this drop back in trip and has a place squeak.

Maiden who's been turned over at 9-2 or shorter on five of his last seven runs; was said to have been unsuited by Bath when well beaten last time, but this trip is a minimum now; wears first-time cheekpieces (has worn a hood once before).

12-race maiden but he's shown enough to think he could win a similar event; should be sharper with last month's reappearance behind him; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Won by a nose off this mark at Leicester (1m2f, good to firm) in June 2022 but not so good in his four starts since, the last two over hurdles; off since February (pulled up; reportedly bled) and needs to resume in peak form.

Form & Verdict

All turf wins on good/firmer but has bits of creditable form on slow ground too; 1m2f wins at Windsor and Chepstow (in tidy style in a slowly run race) on last two outings, so he's on a roll and has to be on the shortlist.

Form & Verdict

No impact in two 7f AW maidens at Wolverhampton last November and it was the same story in a novice there this April but this time he showed more promise, making some late progress from rear; up 3f (dam 1m-1m2f winner) for this handicap and turf debut; needs a market check.
