Three handicap wins last season and today's trip and ground won't be a concern; still looks to have some mileage in his mark but back from a 220-day absence perhaps not the time to catch him.

Half-sister to the yard's quite useful Maytree Respite but this one has shown only minor promise so far, finishing behind reopposing pair Native Melody and Tenrai when fifth on last weekend's 1m1f Lingfield handicap debut; the return to 1m2f a help if anything but needs improvement.

Came good at the ninth time of asking when edging out the reopposing Tenrai in 1m1f Lingfield handicap (good to firm) last Saturday; should remain very competitive after 3lb rise and the promising Connor Planas does the steering.

Comfortably her best effort this term when going down by a neck to the reopposing Native Melody at Lingfield (1m1f, good to firm) last weekend; did race quite freely in the blinkers again, though, and could do with settling better now stepping back up slightly in trip.

Seven-race maiden; ran big race from the front when close second on turf here (1m1f) two starts ago, but was well beaten over 1m2f a week later and her tendency to race too freely remains a worry; others preferred.

Poor this year, rather taking off in front in first-time blinkers (retained) upped to 1m2f last time; maybe similar tactics on tonight's faster ground will help but she needs to be more amenable for a yard also responsible for Angel De Luz.

Off the mark at the sixth attempt when upped to 1m at Redcar (good) last month; refused to enter stalls and withdrawn at Doncaster seven days later (4-1 at the time); has shown some promise on soft ground here and this 3yo is a strong candidate if repeating the Redcar form.
