Winner of a maiden at Bellewstown (5f, good to firm) in July. Three subsequent runs would suggest this is a tall order and may find one or two too good.

Bounced back to form on heavy ground at Haydock (5f) last time when winning comfortably off a mark of 86. Needs to step up on that bare form to win here but conditions suit and not discounted.

Regular winner at a lowly level and tends to always run her race. Should be outclassed today though and likely to find this tough going.

Has won all three of her last starts in handicaps and continues on a sharp upward curve. Sprinted away from rivals in good fashion at Chelmsford (6f, AW) last time but has winning form on soft ground and a leading player for sure.

Both career victories have come on heavy/soft ground so no worries on that front. Ran well enough at Haydock last time but bare form needs improving on. Not totally discounted given conditions.

Winner of a Curragh maiden last month beaten 14-rivals 4L and looking impressive in doing so. Found life much tougher at Listed level at Tipperary last time and needs to bounce back.

Hasn't won since picking up a maiden over two years ago but has run sound cracking races since that would give her strong claims in here. returns from a long absence but would be a player if she's fit and ready to go.

Form has tailed off a little the last twice and failed to beat a rival home on heavy ground at Haydock last time (behind Mayleaf Shine). Has won on soft in the past but needs to return to her best to be involved.

Progressing nicely and won well at Hamilton (6f, soft) last time. Slight drop in trip is a small concern against better rivals but going the right way and should be more to come.

Classy Group-placed two-year-old ended 2017 by winning the valuable Redcar Listed trophy. Two runs this year have not been so good but should be cherry ripe now and these conditions should suit. Player.

Sepoy filly who cost 190,000gns as a yearling. Improved on debut effort to win very nicely at Thirsk (5f, good to soft) on her second starts. Needs to step up on that form now in a better grade but early days and should be more to come.

Consistent filly who has already been placed at this level several times. Doesn't have much to find with the best of these and should have strong place claims at the very least.

Lightly raced so far this year and had issues on the first of them. Bounced back with two terrific efforts at Carlisle and Pontefract at this level. This trip may well suit and she is a leading player once more.

Sauntered through the mud to win a handicap easily at Salisbury (6f, heavy) earlier in the year. Not so good since but these conditions are right up her street and she could be a key player.

Best effort of her career when third at this level at Sandown (5f, good to firm) two starts back. Not as good at Doncaster last time and this ground is a bit of a worry now.

Betting

Forecast

Beauty Filly (4/1), Magical Dreamer (9/2), Golden Spell (9/2), Intense Romance (6/1), Richenza (10/1), Mayleaf Shine (11/1), Miss Bar Beach (12/1), Darkanna (16/1), Fairy Falcon (20/1), Perfect Angel (22/1), Quench Dolly (25/1), Neola (25/1), Cale Lane (25/1), Amthaal (33/1), Wings Of The Rock (50/1), Optionality (50/1), Kinloch Pride (200/1)

Verdict

A really open contest and you can make a case for plenty. Intense Romance is in form and these conditions hold no fears so is respected. Darkanna won the Listed Trophy at Redcar at the back-end of last year and should be cherry ripe now after a couple of starts. She is another with sound claims. Fairy Falcon is completely unexposed and would become of interest if strong in the market. MAGICAL DREAMER is on a sharp upward curve having won three of her last four and can take this step up in class in her stride. She sprinted away from her rivals at Chelmsford last time and could be hard to contain again if handling these conditions.
  1. Magical Dreamer
  2. Darkanna
