Gets a chance in an easier grade here having shown herself capable of some decent form in better handicaps than this although she has yet to win one. Not quite at her best last week at Goodwood but this contest gives her a better chance of a win.

A filly who looks on the rise having won fast ground 7f handicaps on her last two starts with the cheekpieces worn last time now retained. Didn't look entirely at home on the Chepstow undulations last time so maybe that's something to note here.

Posted a decent effort on her return this year (took advantage of a reduced mark (when winning at Bath over 1m. Hasn't shaped badly on het three starts since and although she has work to do here the possibility of a soft lead enhances her chance.

7/1

Won a very weak claimer at Lingfield in April to regain the winning thread (odds-on chance) on her last run for Archie Watson. Struggled to make much of an impact back in handicaps on her first run for this yard and has more to prove here.

Betting

Forecast

Elysium Dream (11/10), Poyle Charlotte (11/8), Black Sails (7/1), Aqua Libre (16/1)

Verdict

The fact that Poyle Charlotte didn’t really look at home on the undulations at Chepstow last time leaves her supporters in some doubt here about how she will handle this even more idiosyncratic track which can take some knowing. Given that premise it may be safer to side with ELYSIUM DREAM who has yet to win a handicap but has shown that she is up to winning one especially on her Goodwood run last week. Aqua Libre will be hoping that she’s allowed a soft lead but she has to run from 5lb out of the handicap and despite the run of the race is likely to find this too tough against two more fancied rivals.
