Irish maiden turf winner over 1m who has shown race-by-race progression after that win the last twice in Listed company. Ran up to her best last time after 7 months off over 1m and has shown that she can handle the AW.
Turned in a career best effort when taking a Kempton AW handicap off a mark of 88 over 7f appreciating the strong gallop that was set. Not seen in handicaps since then plying her trade in a higher grade and finishing third last time (6f).
Twice a winner last season (her first) when taking a maiden on debut and a handicap both over 6f. Not quite lived up to the promise of last year stepped into this grade for her last two starts; ground may have been firmer than she likes; AW debut.
Progression has come once she has been switched to handicaps and made it back-to-back successes in that sphere when winning at Wolverhampton last time over 7f. Had looked well ahead of the handicapper and connections now try Listed class.
Given a sharp rise in grade from winning a handicap off just 78 to finishing 4th in this company and looking as though there was more to come. The run at Musselburgh last time over 7f showed her in a good light but 1m would suit better.
Won three from four in June/July last year the last two 7f handicaps and she looked to have further progress in her. Has looked as though she's needed both her runs so far this year over 7f; run last time could have put her spot-on for this.
The highest rated of these if the official marks are taken into account she's very much at home here (four-time C&D winner) with two of those wins coming this year. Got the run of the race last time but dangerous given an easy lead and thriving.
Won a couple of handicaps in September last year over 6f (both with give in the ground) but looks to have just about reached her limit in this class. Has run with credit in this grade but now tries 7f in this company for the first time.
Her form improved when she took a Kempton AW handicap last August over 7f (first handicap win) in first-time blinkers. Can look a little quirky and hasn't won since spoiling her chance with a very slow start last time; handle with care.
Course winner in a small-field conditions race over 1m (had the run of the race) before managing a 3rd in this class on the AW at Kempton over the same trip. Has failed to handle undulating tracks the last twice (out of depth in Group 2 last time).
Maiden and handicap winner on the AW but looks tested by Listed company and only running respectably in that company the last twice. Below form returned to handicaps last time and others appeal more here.
Has already had a busy season (this will be her 9th run) and she does have a rather up and down profile. Has run respectably in this grade but the suspicion is that it tests her and she's better in handicaps.
C&D winner last time out following up a previous turf handicap win off a 6lb higher mark. In good form at the moment but has to make quite an improvement to take a hand in this company; earlier efforts suggest she will come up short here.
