Ran well to finish runner-up over an extended 5f at Bath (good) earlier this month. Previously finished mid-division in a 5f Listed contest there and she has a fair bit to find on the ratings.
Has been racing over further in recent times including when finishing 1L second in a valuable 7f AW contest at Lingfield at the end of March. Held since and interesting to see how she fares in this contest.
Listed winner on good ground over 7f at Baden-Baden last August. Held on seasonal debut early on soft ground last month and she should appreciate the better ground forecast for this contest.
Placed in a similar race to this at Pontefract (good) last August. Held in two subsequent outings however and is making her seasonal reappearance on this occasion.
Winner of two of her three starts to date the most recent of which came off a mark of 89 at Hamilton (6f, soft) last August. Handles quicker ground and she is one for the shortlist on seasonal debut.
Dual winner on turf last year including when accounting for Clon Coulis by a neck at Newmarket in July. Victorious on her return from a break on the AW last time and she is an interesting runner int his.
Placed in a Listed event over 5f at Doncaster (soft) last September for Clive Cox. Failed to beat a rival home on stable debut at Bath (5f, good) last time and probably best watched at present.
Leicester handicap winner over 6f on good ground off a mark of 76 last April. Unraced since finishing last of nine over 7f at Goodwood (good) in June and looks up against it on this occasion.
Heavy ground winner over an extended 5f at Bath in March and beaten just 2L on good ground in a Listed contest there subsequently. Worth a check in the market.
Dual winner at two including over this trip on good ground at Chester last September. Returns to this trip having finished sixth over 7f at Newbury (good-to-soft) in a Group 3 last time.
Successful over this trip on the AW at Chelmsford last October and made a winning reappearance when making all at Redcar (6f, good-to-firm) recently. Yard are in good form at present (7/32) but she is stepping up markedly in class.
Dual AW winner including off a mark of 85 over 7f at Wolverhampton last time out. Represents a leading yard and interesting to see how she performs dropping in trip.
