14/1

Without success since her Ripon debut (5f, good to firm) last season, though has twice been placed in Listed company. 50-1 and well held on handicap intro at York (7f) last time. Should appreciate stiff 6f, but more needed.

Progressing nicely this season and particularly since going handicapping. Up 2lb for another good performance when beaten 1½L last time. Remains unexposed and from a good draw she should be right in the mix.

Scored at Doncaster in July (7f, good to firm), when 4lb lower. Held from just 1lb higher than today in both starts since. Needs to be right back to her best to win again.

Improving filly who arrives seeking a four-timer after wins over this trip/on good to firm. Up another 6lb for the latest of those at Haydock and now 3lb worse with Gorgeous Noora for 1¾L there, but has strong claims.

Kicked off her season with wins at Thirsk (5f, good to firm) and Haydock (6f, good), the latter from 6lb lower. Back in better form from this mark at Hamilton last time. More needed, but could be very competitive.

Has shown her best turf form on fast ground. Has won at Leicester (6f) and Ascot (5f) this season. Still improving, despite recent defeats. Should be a major player from a decent draw.

6lb lower than when taking a decent Goodwood handicap (6f, soft) this time last year. Has not often got competitive from higher marks this season, and with a tough draw here she looks up against it again.

All three of her turf wins have come on good to soft, so any rain would be a plus. 5lb higher than the latest of those, at Hamilton on her penultimate start. Good effort again last time. More needed, but enters calculations.

Rain would help her cause. Scored on soft last time out at Thirsk (7f), for which she has gone up 4lb. Still improving and will need to continue that to have a say now stepped up again in grade.

Betting

Forecast

Procedure (2/1), Goodnight Girl (4/1), Gorgeous Noora (5/1), Queen Penn (7/1), Zip Along (7/1), Maid In India (8/1), Nuns Walk (9/1), Florenza (14/1), Maggies Angel (14/1), Neola (25/1), Tricksy Spirit (25/1)

Verdict

Another tricky contest to fathom, but the has been plenty to like about how ZIP ALONG has completed her hat-trick and if the rains stay away then she looks to have decent claims of making it four in a row. Gorgeous Noora has to be considered a threat given that she is 3lb better off with the selection from their Haydock running, while Goodnight Girl, Procedure, Nuns Walk and Queen Penn can all have cases made.
