Dual AW winner in the autumn, but turf form is far from solid, and makes limited appeal after beating just one rival at Newmarket (7f) in May.
Runner-up in a 6f novice at Redcar last August, but finished juvenile campaign out of sorts, and has something to prove making a belated return to action.
Made all to win a 6f handicap at Ripon in May, and bounced back from a rare poor effort when runner-up over same C&D last time. This track should suit, and she can go well again.
Placed in 6f handicaps at Thirsk and Doncaster last month, and not disgraced upped to 7f at Catterick last time. Reliable type shouldn't be far away, although more required to win from current mark.
Won maiden at Bath last year, but lost her form in the autumn prior to having wind surgery. No signs that was successful when she finished last of 7 on her return at Newbury.
Regular on AW, winning at Lingfield in November, but only made turf debut in May, and has run respectably on both starts on this surface, catching the eye when fourth under her inexperienced rider last time.
Standout effort when third over 6f at Yarmouth last month, but beaten 7L in that handicap, and balance of form suggests he will struggle at this level.
