- High Sheriff Of Leicestershire British EBF Fillies' Handicap (Class 4)
- 7f, Good to Firm (Firm in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Consistent filly who won at Wolverhampton in April, and has run with credit on all other starts, most recently when close fourth of 8 at Chester (7½f) last month. Should be competitive from 1lb lower mark.
Started the year with a couple of AW wins, but hasn't translated that form to turf on last two starts, and very disappointing at Carlisle last time. Bit to prove now.
Both wins have come on Polytrack at 7f, but yet to prove she is the same force on turf, and well held in fillies' handicap at Sandown last month. Tongue tie reached for now, and risky.
Made all to land back-to-back handicaps at Brighton (7f) last month, but unable to dominate when below form the last twice. No guarantee of an easy lead here, either.
Now 8lb higher than when winning narrowly over C&D in May, but improved again to follow up at Goodwood (6f) and went off too hard in hat-trick bid at Salisbury last time. Should bounce back.
