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.

Consistent filly who got off the mark on AW when winning a C&D handicap in decisive fashion in November; held off this mark over 1m2f at Bath on her reappearance; drop back in trip in what looks likely to be a well-run race looks a good move.

Never out of the first three in ten appearances and posted career-best RPR in toughing it out over 1m on the Kempton AW in November; has finished runner-up in both her runs over C&D, including heavy; up in grade but has less to prove than many.

Came off steady pace to justify market support at Kempton (1m3f, AW) ten days ago, adding to his win here (1m, good to soft) in August; still has low mileage and may improve further; respected.

Improved for the step up in trip when coming from off the pace to collar Wadacre Gomez over C&D in September (well backed; only runner to make up significant ground); beaten on heavy ground at Bath five weeks ago but that not the run to judge him on; should have more races in him but he's got to do it from 3lb out of the handicap today.
