Form & Verdict

1m4f wins at Epsom in July and Newbury on latest outing; the latter was her first run on soft going and, after going clear over 1f out, she looked like scoring by much further than the eventual winning margin; this 4lb higher mark could underestimate her.

Won a novice here (1m2f) in March and bids for a hat-trick after turf wins at Newbury (1m4f, soft) and Catterick (1m4f, heavy); won very easily last time, but will still need to produce plenty more to make an impact in this field.

Probably acts on good to soft, unraced on worse; 4lb higher than for her win at Epsom (1m4f, good to firm) in July; form dipped on latest start, but for which she'd have reasonable each-way claims.

Last win was off an 18lb higher mark over 1m6f at Doncaster (heavy) in October 2022; mixed efforts last season, and although well handicapped now, usually needs a race or two to hit form.

Form & Verdict

No shortage of racing but something has clicked in a major way on last three starts, which she won at Ayr (1m5f), Catterick (1m4f) and Newcastle (2m AW); the first two of those were on good to soft, placed on soft as recently as 2022 but well beaten on heavy last October; perhaps that's a red herring and the thing to concentrate on may be that she's been winning with increasing ease; up another 6lb but has to be shortlisted.

Musselburgh 2m score in November was followed by a nose defeat at Doncaster off 1lb higher than today (2m3f, good); not far off that level again latest, and has stamina to spare back down in trip; chance.

Flopped at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day when the trip and ground shouldn't have been an issue; in good form previously, however, winning at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) before a short-head defeat at Doncaster (2m3f, good), and he can be in the mix if leaving last time behind.

Form & Verdict

Hooded this season but not today; markedly slow starts on most outings (won two) but rather better in that respect last time, when looking better than the bare result as he did not get the best of runs through; never quite got competitive on last three outings now (on soft ground penultimate start) and drops back from 2m/1m6f but could be capable of better.

Markedly slow starts on all five appearances but won two, latterly in a 1m6f handicap on good to soft at Haydock in July off 4lb lower; never quite got competitive on last two outings, not disgraced in form terms but he cannot afford to keep giving such a headstart to his rivals.

Fair maiden on Flat and over hurdles; soft and heavy ground look fine and she ran well in July 2022 after a layoff; needs extra but not entirely dismissed on first run since March, having changed hands and left Joseph O'Brien.

Ex-Irish mare who has been disappointing over hurdles and on the Flat for current stable since the autumn; seemed to run well when third of four on last month's chasing debut at Carlisle (2m5f, soft), despite a significant jumping error on final circuit, but her overall profile remains unconvincing.

Acts on soft, unraced on heavy; pretty consistent in defeat this year, over a wide variety of distances but close second at Carlisle (1m3f) on penultimate start was the best of those runs; seen far more often at Carlisle than anywhere else and remote in this race last year on sole run at Catterick.
