Best run in 10 starts came when second of five on the AW at Wolverhampton in March. Well held on last two starts at Redcar and first-time cheekpieces need to have a galvanising effect.

Has not been able to take advantage of a falling handicap mark this season and cut little ice at Musselburgh last time. Certainly not out of it off career-low mark.

Disappointing in four start on AW surfaces this year. Return to turf may help and handicap rating has plummeted.

Not much to enthuse about in three starts in maiden/novice company. Has been found a weak race on her handicap bow and is worth keeping an eye on in the betting.

Has failed to hit the frame in eight starts. from 6f to 1m. Takes a steep rise in trip and it will need to eke out serious improvement.

Two runs for this yard since leaving David Barron, but they have failed to spark a change in fortune. Beaten out of sight at Beverley last time and is hard to make a case for.

Beaten a long way on both starts off 8lb higher at Beverley this season. Of some interest off her low mark in a weak race.

Betting

Forecast

Handsome Bob (15/8), Kitty's Cove (7/2), Sunhill Lad (4/1), Allnite (9/2), Ipcress File (7/1), Chef United (33/1), Pearl's Calling (66/1)

Verdict

Very moderate fare in the finale. Handsome Bob has to be of interest off this mark, but he has been out of sorts and a tentative vote goes to KITTY'S COVE, who hails from a shrewd stable and makes her handicap bow off a feasible mark. Chef United has done little so far, but sits at the bottom of the weights and may be capable of better than she has shown.
