Both wins came over 6f last year but she has the pace to cope with the drop. Soft ground probably her undoing last time and the stable landed a gamble in the sprint here on Tuesday.

Getting on for two years since her last victory, but she has posted some good efforts in defeat during that period off significantly higher marks than this. Recent efforts have been poor and she is best watched for now.

Ran better than her finishing position suggests last time when not ideally placed. Drops in class and competitively weighted with conditions to suit.

In good form in the first half of last season and this trip on a quick surface works for her. Feasibly treated and worth a market check.

Won on seasonal debut and again after a three month break. Poorly drawn at Sandown on last start when also shaping as though something was amiss. Stable have been going well and not overburdened.

Handles any ground and promised to add to last season's two victories on her reappearance. On a tougher mark here and there are probably better handicapped less exposed fillies in opposition.

Good effort last week at a track which brings out the best in her. More to do here against some potentially well-handicapped fillies.

Has gone well here previously on similar ground and she shaped nicely on seasonal return. That will have her spot on and this dual winner is on a career low mark.

Scored on this card 12 months ago and not seen since clinging on at Musselburgh last summer. Won first time out in 2017 but yard have been without a winner for three months.

Picked up three races in 2017 and below her last winning mark for the first time since. Not ideally drawn on first run back from wind surgery and rider 2-6 for the yard.

Landed a class 6 here last June and has scored at Wolverhampton since. Needs to raise her game in what looks a tougher test than she is accustomed to.

Betting

Forecast

Maid In India (6/4), Marseille (13/2), Fumbo Jumbo (8/1), Melonade (10/1), Maureb (11/1), Rose Marmara (12/1), Economic Crisis (14/1), Kinloch Pride (16/1), Dundunah (16/1), Eternalist (20/1), Annie Salts (33/1)

Verdict

Annie Salts and Rose Marmara are two who could outrun what are likely to be attractive odds with ground conditions in their favour and off attractive weights. Dundunah and Kinloch Pride came to hand early last season, but Maureb has been raised to a tough mark. Marseille, Maid In India and MELONADE are lightly raced and potentially ahead of their current marks with the going favourable. The selection goes well fresh and the form of her two victories has worked out well enough to indicate she is the most favourably treated of the trio.
  1. Melonade
  2. Marseille
  3. Rose Marmara
