Performed well on debut when fourth of 16 at Redcar and confirmed that promise, winning her next two starts and only just touched off at Hamilton when last seen. Could be more to come this year and not out of this if ready on return.
Has a good strike-rate with six wins from 22 starts but looks held by the handicapper a little at present and others preferred.
Gained a third win at Wetherby last time and plenty to like about that effort, staying on gamely. Runner-up has come out and won since and not dismissed from just 5lb higher here.
Won twice on AW over this winter and while a 9lb rise looks a little harsh for her Newcastle win in February, she's unexposed on turf and fast ground may suit.
Placed over C&D at this meeting last year before going on to win at Chester in June. Lost her way a little towards the end of the campaign and entitled to need the run on return but yard have been flying here this week.
Maiden winner at Pontefract and won twice on AW this winter but put in a very poor performance on return to turf at Wetherby last time. No relief from the handicapper and others preferred.
A winner at Goodwood in June and ran a fine race over C&D in a valuable handicap towards the end of the year off this mark. May have needed her return at Windsor and an obvious player in this race.
Two wins from seven starts and she's a consistent sort who ran well at Kempton when last seen. Ought to go well here despite a career high mark if ready to go on return.
Ultra consistent filly who got her head back in front at Doncaster on return last month. Ought to be thereabouts again off just a 3lb higher handicap mark for a yard doing well here this week.
On a long losing run of 21 races and not won since 2016. Running well in defeat of late and needs the first-time headgear to work the oracle if she's to get her head back in front.
Gained a second career win when getting her head in front over C&D in September. The way she did that suggested there would be more to come but she's struggled since and poor last time at Doncaster.
Well beaten on all recent starts and while she's below her last winning mark here, she's hard to recommend in current form.
