Has a rather in-and-out profile; won eased-down at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in January but then found little at Plumpton two months later; might need a personal best even if she's on a going day.

Won twice from the front after the tongue-tie went on last spring (2m; good/good to soft); faced a stiff rise in class when beaten at Ayr in April and unlikely that she did herself justice when reappearing (after wind op) on soft ground at Wincanton in October; conditions are again a concern this afternoon.

Seemingly aided by fitting of a tongue-tie when making all twice in the spring (maiden/handicap) and was not discredited when midfield in competitive race at Ayr on latest outing; had wind op during 191-day break and has plenty of scope for further progress this season.

Won 2m3f maiden last April and put up a stout show over 2m4f (soft) at Aintree on Boxing Day against one ahead of her mark; unsuited by the return to 2m1f at Newcastle since, but the addition of cheekpieces today is a query; should have solid claims for last year's winning yard.

Flat-bred mare and still lightly raced over hurdles; has won a maiden and certainly no worse for the new tongue-tie when clear of the rest in chasing home a Skelton improver at Aintree (2m4f, soft) last time; up 5lb and down in trip, but strong claims.

Won a mares' maiden hurdle at Haydock (2m3f, good to soft) in April; creditable seventh in a competitive juvenile handicap at Cheltenham later that month; might have needed the run when filling the same position on her 2m1f Carlisle reappearance 61 days ago; eased 2lb and the step back up in trip may help; tongue tied first time.

Consistent mare who ran another solid race under a big weight at Fakenham three weeks ago (2m, good) and the winner ran third in last week's Sussex Champion Hurdle; returning to further asks a question of her but she gives the impression that she'll stay.

Verdict

In an interesting mares’ race the vote goes to JAMINSKA, who beat two subsequent winners in a Hereford fillies’ race in January and remains very unexposed. Holly made a very promising handicap debut when fresh just over a year ago and will be dangerous if back on song. Shelikesthelights, Ravenscar and Golden Glance also have plenty going for them.[Chris Wilson]
