- Surface: Turf
Won at Brighton last term for Richard Hannon and also placed a number of occasions on AW this winter. Returns from 166-day break and not without a chance if ready to roll.
Has run respectably most starts but still yet to get her head in front. Blinkers applied last time when fifth of 17 at Salisbury but not used this time. Should be thereabouts.
Didn't race as a juvenile but has shown ability all three starts this term, most recently staying on into third over 5f here last time. Yard in fine form so rates a major contender with extra furlong to help.
Shown ability all four starts and was noted staying on well into fourth at Lingfield last week over 7f. Should be sharper now and hood will help so has to be one for the short list.
Went close on debut at Kempton in April but disappointing soon after at Chelmsford. Distant third behind potentially useful winner at Doncaster latest and second has come out and won decent race since so form looks solid. One to consider.
Won over 5f as a juvenile and stamina seemed to ebb away over 7f at Leicester last time. Drop back in trip makes sense. Yard fairly quiet of late though.
Raced mainly on AW and stayed on well to score at Newcastle 6f last time out. In form and should win more races but has to produce the goods on turf this time.
10-race maiden has run well enough last two starts in handicap but may find this tougher. First-time blinkers may eke out a little improvement so not wothout hope but more needed.
