Was progressing nicely, with a maiden and two handicap wins at this trip, but came unstuck at Newmarket last time in a handicap from a mark of 91. Needs to get back on track here in a tougher race, but not written off.

Enjoyed a good 2017, but has yet to hit those heights again this term. Nonetheless, she has put in a couple of solid efforts at this level. If cheekpieces work well, then she could not be ruled out from getting competitive. Has to prove she gets 1m.

Beaten just 1½L in Listed company over this trip last year for Jeremy Noseda. Off the mark at the first time of asking for this trainer in a Chelmsford novice event last month. Enters calculations back in this grade on turf.

Won in this grade at Pontefract last year (1m, good to soft) and goes on any ground with good in the description. Has not been at her best in recent outings at Group level, but should appreciate this lesser test and is not ruled out each-way.

Back-to-back Goodwood wins (7f maiden, 1m handicap) last year saw her stepped up to this level and she was beaten just ½L in a Sandown Listed event. However, things have not gone as well this time, leaving her with a bit to prove.

Won a 7f Musselburgh Listed event, followed by a German Group 2 (1m) last spring. Form dipped thereafter, but revived last time when 1L fourth in an Ascot Listed event (first-time blinkers). Headgear retained. Each-way player.

Looking progressive, having won a Windsor maiden and then scoring with a bit in hand in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot. Steps up again, but looks like she can handle this. Trip/ground look ideal. Major player.

Scored on debut at Ripon last year (5f, good to firm) and has twice gone close in Listed company. Well held in a York Group 3 last time, but this is more realistic and she is not ruled out of the frame again.

Won her first two starts in Germany last year, including a Group 3. 5-1 but well held on her British/stable debut in a Sandown Listed event last time. Needs to bounce back, but unexposed and not ruled out.

Stepped up considerably on her debut effort when a 7L winner of a novice event over 7f here last month, being given the run of the race and making all. This won't be as easy, but she deserves to take her chance.

Scored over 7f (good to soft) at Chester a year ago and was second in a Newbury Listed event in October (7f, soft). Ran well over C&D on sole run this season. Looks to have been kept back for some cut and if rain arrives she has a squeak.

Betting

Forecast

Agrotera (10/11), La Figlia (5/1), New Day Dawn (12/1), Shepherd Market (12/1), Narella (12/1), Unforgetable Filly (14/1), Dynamic (14/1), Lincoln Rocks (16/1), Maggies Angel (25/1), Queen of Time (33/1), Inshiraah (50/1)

Verdict

The progressive AGROTERA looks the one to side with here, given the way in which she won the Sandringham from a big field. Admittedly, this is a step up, but she can take it in her stride. Shepherd Market would be very interesting if the ground eases, with Narella another to consider in that case. La Figlia is not ruled out and the same applies to Unforgetable Filly.
