In good form, winning at Doncaster and then losing nothing in defeat to course specialist Cougar Kid at Hereford latest. Doubt is this deep ground, as her best seems to come on quicker, but in such rude health, can't be discounted.
Has some good efforts against useful sorts to her name, lightly raced for her age and came good at Fakenham last time when winning with a bit in hand. May just be a slow learner so could have more to come, and with no ground issues, looks a player.
Wins her share but also has her own ideas about the game at times, ran well enough here when last out in July but not seen since and that, coupled with this trip which looks on the short side for her, mean it's not hard to look elsewhere today.
Made all to win at Towcester back in 2016 but only seen once since then when falling at Wetherby in December. Has to be slight question mark about her wellbeing at present and it may pay to look elsewhere for the winner.
Hasn't shown much so far although did run a little better than finishing position suggests at Punchestown last time, and Irish raiders often do well at this track. Needs a market check if nothing else.
From the same yard as Siempre Amigos, and her form claims would appear more obvious after her close fourth at Punchestown last time. Travelled well there and with ground/trip no problem, looks one of the more likely candidates.
Second on handicap debut at Chepstow last November but hasn't repeated that effort in two subsequent starts. Conditions fine but needs to bounce back to her best form to hold a chance, and that may be unlikely.
