Group 3 winner at Newmarket last year and has run well in defeat twice this time around. Hard to imagine she's well handicapped here though and Crowley prefers Ganayem.

Best effort yet when returned to fast ground at the Curragh last time out and this well bred filly likely to carry on improving for this yard. 6lb higher in a tougher race demands more but not one to rule out.

Won a Dundalk maiden at the turn of the year and while she's not won since, she put up a much improved effort in a Group 3 at Leopardstown last time. Met some minor trouble in running that day but handicapper hasn't missed her for her return.

Has won four of her last five and while her C&D success here last time didn't take much winning, she is on a fair mark. Slight concern that her turf wins have come with soft in the going but that's not necessarily by design; not ruled out.

Justified odds on favouritism in a Naas maiden last time in convincing fashion and form of that race has been boosted by the runner-up and third since. Likelihood is she's on a nice mark for her handicap debut and not ruled out here.

Beat a progressive sort at Leicester last time in a four runner affair. While a 4lb rise for that is entirely fair, it's conceivable that other rivals arrive on better handicap marks.

Won a maiden at Doncaster and ran a huge race behind a subsequent Group 1 winner in a Group 2 back at that course next time. Struggled in two starts this year though and hard to fancy in current form despite her falling mark.

Won on debut at Newmarket but well beaten when dropped in to a Group 1 back at that course the following month. Beaten favourite on her return at Lingfield and might be struggling from this sort of mark at present.

Has won two of her first three starts and it's interesting she's the yard's first string here but this looks like a big ask on her return from an absence on a stiff looking handicap mark.

Justified favouritism on seasonal return at Newmarket despite over racing in the early stages. Refused to settle again last time in Listed class back at that course but she's been given a mini-break since then and may do better here.

Won on debut but she's struggled up at Pattern level and she was a beaten odds on favourite at Lingfield last time. Questions to answer at present.

Narrowly denied over 5f here on debut and won a maiden next time out at Haydock. Struggling to reproduce that level of form since though and she needs first-time blinkers to spark a revival.

Has won both starts this season, justifying favouritism at Goodwood last time out on soft ground. Entirely unexposed but the handicapper has taken no chances with her opening handicap mark.

Won a Newmarket maiden on return and beat a subsequent dual Listed winner in the process but she disappointed in the Musidora at York last time. Perhaps failed to stay that day so drop down to this trip could be in her favour and not ruled out.

Showed very little in two starts last year but she's been a different proposition this time around. Gained her second win of the campaign with a comfortable success at York last time and not ruled out with more progress on the cards.

Off the mark in a maiden last time out and the runner-up franked the form in impressive fashion at Goodwood since. If she takes another step forward form that run she must have each-way claims here from a potentially lenient handicap mark.

Maiden winner at the Curragh a couple of starts back but she's failed to justify favouritism in two handicaps since. May want a return to softer ground to be seen at her best.

Won her fourth start in maiden company at Newmarket and runner-up from that race has come out and won since. Handicapper has given her a real chance from this mark and the fitting of first-time cheekpieces may see her improve.

Didn't need to improve to justify short-priced favouritsm at Wolverhampton last time out but she's been dropped in at the deep end for her handicap debut and her mark looks stiff enough.

Won at Kempton on her second start but she's been a shade disappointing twice since. Form of her third in a fillies race at Kempton let down since and hard to fancy in this field.

Ran well in defeat throughout her juvenile campaign and broke her duck at Goodwood last time. Form of that doesn't look like anything special though and she gets different ground this time. Othes preferred.

Has improved this season from a trio of placed effort last year but needs to up her game to be involved at this level. There's a suspicion she would have wanted softer ground than this and others preferred.

Just one win from eight starts and struggling on AW when last seen. 1lb out of the handicap won't help her cause and others look more appealing from a betting perspective.

Verdict

There was plenty to like about AGROTERA's win last time out and the runner-up has franked that form in good fashion at Goodwood since; she may have a few pound in hand from the handicapper here. Perfection arrives with a similar profile and first-time headgear may see her improve again. Ceilidhs Dream is another interesting one back down in trip here after disappointing in Group class last time.
