Form & Verdict

Narrowly justified favouritism at Lingfield (1m2f, good) last month, taking form figures to 321331; outstayed on soft going in sole 1m4f attempt but may see out the trip granted faster ground; further progress is possible; respected.

Won maiden at Ffos Las (1m2f, good to soft) last August; ran respectably when warm favourite since for handicaps at Newbury (1m4f, soft) in September and Pontefract (1m2f, soft) last month, failing to see those races out; still fairly early days after just five races.

J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: Ralph Beckett

Won at Ffos Las (1m2f, good to soft) last August on her third start and travelled well before weakening into third on handicap debut at Newbury (1m4f, soft) the following month; this very lightly raced filly brings potential to her 4yo campaign, especially now back down to 1m2f; key player.

Form & Verdict

Flat/hurdles winner in Britain and Flat/bumper scorer in Germany; beaten long way in two handicap hurdles for Milton Harris back on British soil, latest nine months ago; similar profile to Cabrakan and the betting should be helpful.

Flat/hurdles winner in Britain earlier in career and Flat/bumper scorer in Germany last year; not seen since very disappointing stable debut in March, though, and not an easy one to predict here; swaps cheekpieces for first-time visor.

Form & Verdict

Eight-race maiden who has proved largely consistent; absent since midfield effort in competitive Vase event at Lingfield (1m4f, AW) on Good Friday; less exposed on turf and has possibilities returned to this sphere (third attempt).

Still a maiden but thereabouts in most of her starts, including a head defeat in 1m3f Kempton handicap last month (latest close third was in a 1m4f novice); looks handicapped about right but has each-way claims.

In the frame in five of her six starts, going down narrowly the last twice including when beaten a short head by Caustic at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) on her penultimate outing; not really progressing, but is 6lb better off with her old rival so shouldn't be far away again.

Form & Verdict

Four-time turf winner; both starts this season at Newcastle (AW), scoring in April then running poorly (behind Charging Thunder) last month; likely player granted a rebound, having gone very close off 2lb higher in this contest last year.
