80/1

Best when forcing pace, and has won twice at Chester since joining current yard but was woefully out of form returning from a break at Windsor (6f, good) a fortnight ago. First-time cheekpieces tried here.

A filly who looks on the rise having won fast ground 7f handicaps on two of her last three starts at Doncaster and Chepstow. Ran well from this mark since at Brighton (third) and likely to be in thick of this.

Winner at Windsor last August but has found life harder since. Went close over 6f at Kempton in July but two lesser efforts again since then, and she already looks more exposed than most.

Improved from debut to win at Chester on second start but she went backwards for the remainder of her two-year-old career. Last of five at Newbury (6f, good to firm) on reappearance, race didn't pan out well and should improve for it dropping 3lb.

Improving Dutch Art filly, evidenced when she opened her account over C&D four weeks ago. Likely has more to come and can go well from 6lb higher mark.

Seasonal reappearance at Brighton (1m, good to firm) was encouraging, didn't build on it next time on the AW at Chelmsford but drops in distance and goes handicapping now. Could have plenty more to offer.

Winner of a 6f novice at Windsor last August for Henry Candy, but that has proven to be weak form and well beaten in both turf starts this summer for new trainer. Cheekpieces added for this AW bow.

Twice a winner over this trip on AW at Chelmsford and Kempton back in the spring, not been in the same form over the summer but has now dropped back to previous winning mark and runner-up over C&D when last here.

Didn't run badly on handicap debut at Sandown (1m1f, good) early this month. Had previously shown some promise on the AW, runs from 2lb lower now and sporting new cheekpieces. Can go well down in trip.

Much-improved effort on reappearance whne springing 20/1 shock over 7f at Salisbury. Satisfactory handicap bow over 6f at Leicester since, makes AW bow now and can get in the mix.

Irish raider, won over this trip at Leopardstown on penultimate start in apprentice contest and went close again since at Down Royal. Respected contender in this company.

Does most of her racing on AW these days and won at Lingfield in June before two decent runs at Chelmsford since, no reason she won't mount a challenge again.

Betting

Forecast

Poyle Charlotte (5/2), Romaana (11/4), Dutch Monarch (9/2), Treasure Me (7/1), Secret Memories (10/1), Smooth Sailing (10/1), Lamya (14/1), Sonnet Rose (20/1), Stosur (25/1), Armum (66/1), Boreagh Lass (80/1), Turanga Leela (80/1)

Verdict

DUTCH MONARCH had been threatening around here, often lacking some luck, before scoring over C&D with Luke Morris back in the saddle. A 6lb rise makes things tougher now but the yard remains in super form and the partnership might take some beating again. Poyle Charlotte has been enjoying herself on the turf this summer and is more than capable of going well back on the AW while Sonnet Rose must also be respected over a C&D where she's gone well. Irish raider Secret Memories and handicap debutante Romaana are other to note.
