5 yo Filly

OR: 70

Form & Verdict

A few expensive defeats in maiden/novice company and she is looking exposed now; on the positive side, the return to slower ground won't hurt, she's drawn in stall 1 and is 6lb lower than for last month's handicap debut.

Went close off 1lb higher at Chester (7f, good to soft) in September but she ended last season on a low note and was beaten 15l at Newcastle on her return in March; record now stands at 0-9 and has questions to answer back at this trip.

Similar type to August, being 0-8; absent since October; has some placed form over 7f on turf, peak effort when close second in Chester handicap (7f Class 5) on penultimate start; has a fighting chance provided she takes well to Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner in France in 2021 (good to soft; very soft) who's found her level again, having made her debut for this yard early in the year off a mark 22lb higher; has made the running but doesn't have to and may be dropped in again from stall 9; player.

J: Liam Keniry

T: Sylvester Kirk

2-5 when trained in France but found the handicapper firmly in command in the first half of 2023; she's been much more competitive in recent starts though and returning to 1m will suit; handles slow ground; contender, especially if avoiding the late hanging which has blighted recent runs.

Form & Verdict

Started the year, having been picked up from Richard Hannon, on an unrealistic mark; has been more competitive lately but her latest improvement in fortunes came from the front in a first-time tongue-tie, whereas she is drawn in 10 today and unproven on soft ground.

Has done most racing on the AW and is 0-7 in handicaps, but she ran well on soft ground early last month, backed that up on Tapeta last time and is well drawn; there are reasons for optimism.

Cheekpieces have helped and she was a dual winner (heavy, good) last month, latterly off a 6lb lower mark; tends to race on the sharp end, though, so stall 13 is an issue, and this race is a bit stronger again.
