Looked useful for Roger Charlton and proving that in three starts for new handler. Found only an unexposed rival too good on Friday at Ascot and looks a big player on that run, hood back on.
Lightly-raced filly who has won twice on turf both over 6f, may have found 5f too sharp on AW at Chelmsford most recently but potentially remains high enough in the ratings for turf return.
Disappointing favourite over C&D in June off this mark, has improved markedly on the AW since, winning three from six and just going down last time off a mark 14lb higher than this one. Clear threat if bringing that form across.
Track specialist with form figures of 1222, including over this trip a week ago on seasonal reappearance. No reason to suspect he won't run another big race and sharper this time.
Won over this C&D in April 2017 on seasonal bow, rated 88, third turf win of his career. Went close subsequently at Ascot off a mark of 92 and with a positive AW spin in March his most recent outing, looks a player on this mark back here.
A winner at Thirsk in spring 2017, he added to his tally when landing a 7f Epsom handicap in September. Form in three starts since, including seasonal reappearance at Ripon, much less encouraging. Watching brief.
Dual winner last summer and denied in a tight finish at Brighton (5½f, good to soft) earlier this month. Has been bumped up 3lb for that effort. Competitive again.
Three wins in 2017, all over 5f and on good/soft ground. Heavy going and 6f at Salisbury recently not the ideal combination. Blinkers added here and should find things more in his favour.
