Had been looking exposed until running out an easy winner of a 7f nursery at Leicester on her penultimate start, but reverted to type when only sixth of 8 in s similar event at Goodwood last time. Looks opposable on balance.

Placed on his first two starts in the spring, and back to that form when runner-up in a 6f novice here late last month. Should be as effective back up in trip, but vulnerable to progressive rivals.

Runner-up on heavy ground here on debut, and matched that form on AW next time, but not seen since running poorly at Bath in June, and has something to prove.

Matched previous best when third in a 6f nursery at Doncaster in July, but seemed to find that trip a little sharp at Ffos Las next time. Had a break since, and capable of better now tackling this trip.

Best effort to date when third over 7f on debut at Newbury. Yet to match that, but not a huge surprise if the switch to nurseries saw her progress again.

Seemed to improve on previous efforts when 7¾L sixth of 7 to Roma Bangkok at Chelmsford last time, but hard to call that form solid, and he will need to improve again here.

Yard gets more than its share of winners in such races, but this filly hasn't shown a great deal in three starts to date, and will need to improve significantly now handicapping.

Some promise in maidens, and improved for step up to 1m on nursery debut when 2¼L second of 13 to Storm Shelter at Chelmsford last time. Will go well if translating that form back to turf now.

Forecast

Ghost Queen (7/4), Headland (7/4), Chonburi (7/2), Sufficient (4/1), John Betjeman (13/2), Cromwell (12/1), Elegant Love (16/1), Perfectly (16/1), Mersey (16/1)

Verdict

HEADLAND improved markedly on her previous efforts when winning a nursery over C&D last week, and she will be a tough nut to crack under a penalty for that easy victory. Ghost Queen also improved on nursery bow last time, albeit on Polytrack, but she looks the main threat if translating that back to turf. Sufficient looked in need of this trip last time, and completes the shortlist.
