Took her ten attempts to get off the mark, but now bids for a hat-trick after wins on the AW at Kempton (1m3f) and Chelmsford (1m2f); 2lb rise less of a concern than the return to turf (out of the frame in three attempts).

Form & Verdict

Has plenty of Listed/Group form, mostly over longer trips, peak effort when second in the 1m5f Geoffrey Freer at Newbury last August; not crying out for return to 1m2f but is a major contender on ratings.

Ching Shih

9st 3lb

J: Callum Shepherd

T: David Simcock

Hasn't added to her soft-ground 2yo win; ran very well in Group 3 at Newbury (1m5f, good to soft) in August, coming from off the pace to finish a clear second behind the subsequent St Leger runner-up Arrest; 1m6f seemingly did not help on latest start but her form case rests solely on the Geoffrey Freer run and even that leaves her with work to do.

Form & Verdict

Unraced on soft/heavy; gained wins at novice/handicap level last term; not disgraced in Listed grade (1m2f, AW) on final outing but finished only in midfield and needs to show improvement on reappearance.

Form & Verdict

Acts on heavy ground; came up short in last year's Oaks; progressive RPRs on French soil otherwise, including at Group 1 level; on ratings this looks her best chance since 2yo debut win; respected.

Heartache Tonight

9st 2lb

J: Jamie Spencer

T: David Menuisier

Lightly raced 4yo who has been campaigned in France except when below par on ground too fast (good to firm) in the Oaks; finished close up in a 1m2f Group 1 (very soft) and a 1m4f Group 2 (heavy) on either side of Epsom; has the form to take a hand provided conditions are suitable, and her half-sister Wonderful Tonight improved with age and experience.

Form & Verdict

Acts on any going; useful handicapper who ran respectably in Listed race at Newmarket on last appearance (has a good record there); won at this course as a 2yo; frame possibilities on the figures.
