Form & Verdict

Won at Ballinrobe (1m5f, good) in June and scored by 5l at Listowel (1m4f, soft to heavy) 16 days ago; this 5yo has gone up the weights and takes on some unexposed 3yos today, but it was a career best last time and this progressive Irish raider could be in the mix.

J: Rob Hornby

T: Gavin Cromwell

Dual-purpose performer who has won a pair of 1m4f Flat handicaps this autumn; another good run when second in 1m6f Bath Listed race on heavy last month but she was beaten 7l; the shorter trip and the fact she's never run on AW are reasons to look elsewhere for win purposes.

Dual-purpose performer who has won on the Flat in three of her last five runs including when making all in a Class 2 handicap at Newmarket (1m4f) 11 days ago; now switches to a Listed event but that was a personal best last time and she seems fairly versatile regarding trip and ground; shortlisted.

Progressive filly who was nicely on top in the finish when beating a solid yardstick over 1m4f at Goodwood (good), for which a 6lb rise is fair; no doubt has plenty more to offer; below par on her only previous run on ground softer than good, though that was on her debut.

Didn't show a great deal in sole 2yo run but she left that form miles behind when making all in a big-field novice at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) on her recent return; has a penalty on this switch to turf but she's open to more progress and is strongly respected.
