No improvement on handicap debut and will need to improve albeit in weaker race. Check for market support.
Regressive form in last two starts including on reappearance and needs to find improvement.
Found significant improvement with two wins in a row following a break on the AW and then on soft ground. Different conditions to handle here but progressive and 4lb rise unlikely to hinder her.
Steady improvement resulted in eye-catching win last start. Got loose beforehand and then overcame poor draw showing early speed and hitting the line strongly. Unpenalised and extra distance will also help.
Rejoins former stable following two poor runs. Hard to fancy on seasonal reappearance.
Unraced on turf since debut but has shown improvement on AW when placed last twice. Drop in trip a positive on evidence of last run and should be competitive in race lacking depth.
Still a maiden after ten starts and needs to step up on recent form. Ground a question mark as has missed a race in the past due to quick conditions.
Well backed on turf and handicap debut when suffering a slow start and wide position. Looks another realistic opportunity and open to more improvement than most.
Stablemate of Choral Music who struggled on handicap debut. Testing conditions against her there and may far better on quicker ground. Place hope.
Well beaten in all four starts including in a claimer on stable debut. Best watched at present.
Shown little in four runs to date and needs to find significant improvement for step up in distance.
Still a maiden but found a bit of improvement when just worn down late on in similar conditions back on the turf. Races on the speed and place possibilities in a race lacking any real depth.
