Both wins have been achieved on the AW at Wolverhampton, but she is just as capable on turf judged on her second at Newmarket in June. Runs off 1lb higher, but is in good form and should be thereabouts again.

Won at Newbury as a juvenile and at Wolverhampton on her reappearance in April. Dropped to sprinting at York last time and left the impression that it did not suit. This is the farthest she has gone so far and she is fitted with a tongue tie.

Back to winning ways when scoring over 7f at Yarmouth last month. Up in trip off 2lb higher, but should make her presence felt if in the same mood.

First run since December when third of 23 at this track last month. Has gone up 2lb, but has to be considered on the assumption she will be sharper for the outing.

Went up 2lb to this mark after winning at Goodwood in May and was well down the field in the Ascot race in which Escape The City was third. Plenty to do on that evidence.

Newmarket winner in May, but climbed the handicap and was beaten by Bubble and Squeak at Goodwood. Inching back down the weights, but looks opposable.

Back to form when runner-up stepped up to 1m at Wetherby last month. Has been raised 4lb, which seems a little harsh.

Only win was achieved as a juvenile at Beverley. Not much to shout about in two runs over 1m2f this season, but is dropping down the handicap and reverts to 1m.

Betting

Forecast

Beshaayir (5/2), Escape The City (5/2), Considered Opinion (11/2), Hunni (13/2), Bubble And Squeak (10/1), Odyssa (10/1), Toy Theatre (10/1), Lady Freyja (12/1), Apple Anni (33/1)

Verdict

Considered Opinion has to be respected despite top weight and cases can also be made for Lady Freyja and Toy Theatre. However, this may be fought out by Beshaayir and ESCAPE THE CITY, with preference for the latter following her fine comeback run at this venue last month. Apple Anni is down in the weights and in distance so any market support for her would be interesting.
