Not unduly punished by the handicapper for her Kempton success when showing a willing attitude. This looks a tougher set of rivals though.

50/1
Overcame a slow start to bely odds of 50/1 on her debut over C&D last autumn but has struggled in two conditions events this term, most recently when upped to 1m2f. Questions to answer as she makes a handicap bow in first-time cheekpieces.

Clipped heels here last time when seeing a four-timer. Needs to step up on previous efforts to take this, but useful claimer on board and stable are going well.

Has won three of her last five with the two defeats coming when too keen. Should get enough cover from this draw and is a live contender for an in form trainer.

Benefited from a good tactical ride to beat UAE Queen by 5L last time. An 8lb rise for that takes the form at face value and leaves her with a more difficult task. Looks held by Finale on her C&D run here in July.

In good form over 1m2f this summer but not as strong since over this trip. Trainer persists and she is now just 2lb higher than her last success. There is, however, a likelihood of a better gallop which will bring her stamina into play.

Landed a four-runner Newmarket maiden on return but the third won next time and this mark looks undemanding as a result. Rider 5-13 for the yard who also do well with their handicap debutants.

Produced an impressive turn of foot to score at Kempton two weeks ago. That was a huge improvement on a modest turf debut. The previous efforts of the second and fourth would suggest the handicapper has been lenient. Clearly a leading contender.

Had little chance with Kyllachys Tale at Windsor when that rival poached a lead under a clever ride. Could be a different story here on better ground and with her yard in better form. The form of her Yarmouth win suggests she is on a workable mark.

Would appear to hold Kyllachy's Tale on running here in July but easily cast aside since over 7f on quicker ground at Brighton. Stable have been a bit quieter of late and Adam Kirby deserts her for Al Nafoorah.

In good form earlier in the year when the yard were enjoying a purple patch. Less impressive lately and she still looks too high in the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Dynamic (2/1), Al Nafoorah (5/1), Madeleine Bond (11/2), Jalela (9/1), Clearly (10/1), Kyllachys Tale (12/1), Uae Queen (14/1), Finale (14/1), Flying North (25/1), Darkroom Angel (33/1), Assanilka (50/1)

Verdict

Proven form meets untapped potential in this. Six of these won on their last completed start with Jalela, Kyllachys Tale, Al Nafoorah and Madeleine Bond all penalised accordingly. CLEARLY and Dynamic both won minor maidens on their latest starts and represent top yards. The latter only won a four-runner race but the jockey booking catches the eye and the third won next time. CLEARLY showed an impressive burst of speed to collect at Kempton and there are form lines from that event that which indicate the handicapper has been generous. The Gosden team are operating at a 25% strike rate currently and she can continue on the upgrade.
  1. Clearly
  2. Dynamic
  3. Al Nafoorah
