1m2f Salisbury winner in penultimate start and doing best work late on over same trip at Brighton next when third off today's mark. This extra 1½f may bring about some improvement so merits respect.
Took her time to get going but wins the last twice at Leicester (1m4f) and Bath over this trip show that she is really coming to hand now. Gets an extra 5lb now but that unlikely to slow her down and connections teamed up to win this race last year.
Off the mark two starts ago over 1m2f at Leicester when making all but struggled next in a more competitive Sandown handicap. Must improve off this mark but relatively lightly raced so it is possible.
$420,000 Galileo filly yet to really build on promising debut second at Lingfield (turf) in two AW starts since. Return to turf could help and has to be considered capable of plenty of improvement now stepping into handicap company.
Ran best race to date latest on handicap debut over this trip when finishing third of six at Windsor. Going in the right direction but a bit more needed although first-time blinkers noted addition by top trainer.
Bumper winner yet to win under flat rules but went very close in a C&D maiden handicap beaten a short-head in penultimate start. Settled for fourth next at Leicester when finishing strongly. Should be capable of involvement here.
Only beaten 1¾L into third of three behind Floria Tosca latest but possibly flattered by the proximity. 5lb better off with that rival here although she is 1lb out of the handicap.
