Seemed to appreciate better ground when winning her maiden last season and then didn't seem to handle the AW subsequently. Open to improvement on her return for stable that is flying.

Unsuited by step up to 6f last time and much better suited by this minimum trip, however bit disappointing in three starts this season.

Has the pace that suggests there's more improvement to come by this further drop in distance. Suited by quick ground last start and should be competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Haylah (3/1), Kodina (4/1), Knockout Blow (9/2), Swing Out Sister (9/2), Dreamboat Annie (8/1), Crystal Deauville (9/1), Aquadabra (10/1), Donny Belle (20/1)

Verdict

An open race that looks set to be run at a furious pace. That could suit DREAMBOAT ANNIE who suffered an unfortunate incident on her return but could easily bounce back. Crystal Deauville looks on the upgrade after a change to front running tactics but faces plenty of challenges for the lead which includes Knockout Blow and Haylah. Swing Out Sister could be ready to fire on her reappearance for a stable who can do little wrong.
