Rattled off a four-timer last year before her form tailed off towards the end of the campaign. While she returned with a promising enough effort this time around at Ayr, her subsequent Hamilton effort was well below par and she needs to bounce back.
Has looked moderately progressive this year, winning two of her last four starts. Failed to take advantage of a drop in class last time but gives the impression we still haven't seen the best of her and the booking of Atzeni is a positive.
Won on debut for this yard over hurdles but looks up against it on her return to the Flat from this sort of handicap mark.
Consistent sort generally but she's been below form on two starts since winning at Chelmsford in June. Rates as the type to bounce back and handicapper has given her some relief.
Won on debut at Yarmouth on sole start as a juvenile but she's disappointed in three outings this campaign and hard to recommend at present.
Improved from debut to win in impressive fashion at Sandown on just her second start. Has probably found Listed company coming too soon in two subsequent efforts but could well take advantage down in class on handicap debut.
Plenty of promise in her sole start as a juvenile and improved from her reappearance to win back-to-back races. 4lb rise for her Ffos Las win perhaps a tad harsh but more progress on the cards and couldn't be ruled out.
Very consistent sort who rattled off a hat-trick before a rare disappointment at Epsom last time out when slowly away. 3lb out of the handicap here but she's the type to bounce back and she relishes cut in the ground.
Confirmed the promise of a smart debut run at Sandown by winning her next two starts, most recently a relatively comfortable success at Nottingham. Shaped like she would appreciate this step up in trip but must improve to defy this mark.
Didn't need to improve to win a fillies' novice event at Chelmsford last time. Drops in trip and can't be entirely ruled despite racing from 2lb out of the handicap here.
