Steps back down the grading ladder after midfield finish at Wolverhampton last time, where she stayed on at one pace (over a mile) and looks worth anther try at this trip. First run on turf today, so could easily improve again for that.
Half-sister to the yard' Mafaaheem, who interestingly won over this C&D last August, and she was nicely backed to score on her handicap debut at Newmarket last month. Will come on for that and no surprise if she takes a hand in the finish.
Was only one place behind Naqaawa at Newmarket last month and holds chances on that, but took a big backwards step at Leicester last time, never getting into the contest. Upped in trip today but bit to prove now.
Nothing if not consistent, runner up on all of her last three starts and on the same mark as when runner-up over C&D here last time out. Stays well and likely to try and make all again today. Obvious chance.
Promise of last year looks to be coming to fruition now given more of a trip this time around, went close to breaking her duck at Doncaster under similar conditions last time out and although up in grade here (and 5lb higher) is going the right way.
Only had the three starts and has improved a little on each of them, held every chance of success at Lingfield last time but ran out of it late. Drop back in trip and turf debut could both induce another improved effort. Not ruled out.
Winner over this trip at Salisbury in April but that was on heavy ground, and since then, she's put in two lesser efforts. May find a few of these too quick for her, and others are preferred.
