Showed ability in four starts last year, her best effort when third of ten in a Kempton novice (7f, Polytrack) in November; shortlisted on return from 160 days off with stable going well.

The second and third have let the form down since but it was a pleasing introduction when making the frame at 16-1 on debut at Kempton last month (6f); not entirely ruled out if coping with this very different test.

9st 10lb

J: Luke Morris

T: Conrad Allen

Maiden who's gone the wrong way since handicapping (albeit been running fairly well of late), coming 7lb down the weights this year; out of a sister to Tiggy Wiggy, who was fine on slow ground, but she'll need to improve on switch to turf.

J: Darragh Keenan

T: Conrad Allen

Two of her better efforts have come over C&D, as when third of eight a fortnight ago (half a length behind Zachary); meets him on the same terms, but again shouldn't be too far away.

OR:

Form & Verdict

Never threatened when beaten over 11l at Newmarket in September (good to firm) and October (soft) and dropping back a furlong may not be the answer; handicaps in time are likely to be more suitable.

Three solid efforts since switched to handicaps, most recently looking stretched by 1m4f at Lingfield; dropping down the weights and still capable of better.

Jailbird

J: Callum Shepherd

Promising fourth, one place behind a subsequent easy winner, at Wolverhampton (9.5f) last month on handicap/seasonal debut; gives the impression this extra yardage will suit; clear possibilities off 1lb lower.

33-1 when finishing six places and over 6l behind Lou Lou's Gift on debut over C&D last month (slowly away and ran green; good); much more obviously needed.

Hint of ability on her turf debut in September but she couldn't justify a prominent market position at Wolverhampton two weeks ago; this isn't a strong contest but she does need to find extra.

Form & Verdict

Failed to emulate half-brother Mighty Ulysses in making a winning debut here at two but ran a race full of promise in the face of greenness to finish off well for third (6f, good; 13-2); will take some beating if coping with today's slower ground.

Has shown promise, both when third on debut at Yarmouth (6f, good) and when going close over C&D; has failed to settle on both occasions, however, so connections now try her in headgear; big player.

Betting Forcast

9/4 Imperial Express, 10/1 Its Showtime, 25/1 Jailbird, 40/1 Little Siskin, 4/7 Lou Lous Gift, 40/1 Scotties Sister

Verdict

Imperial Express will find this much easier than her latest race but form still leaves her vulnerable to LOU LOU’S GIFT who really got the hang of things late on when doing best of the newcomers on her debut over C&D last month.[Andrew Cooper]
