Three-time turf winner this season (all 1m) was found out at Listed level last time which followed a handicap fourth at Yarmouth. Two previous AW runs not great but they came last year when she was less of a force. Capable here at best.
2017 C&D winner has had last four runs here. Kept on into seventh over 7f last time but despite handicap continuing to fall her overall record this year is unappealing.
C&D win last time out her second from three on AW (second in other run) and was always doing enough as she scored by 1¼L. Up 4lb now but clearly of plenty of potential on this seemingly favoured surface and rates a leading player.
Lingfield maiden win (1m, AW) was followed by a nose defeat at Newmarket over 1m where she was beaten the minimum margin of a nose. Goes up 3lb for that but clearly progressing late in her three-year-old year and obvious chance here.
Unable to win in six starts this season although been competitive on the whole. Latest fourth of 13 at Windsor another sound effort but handicapper doesn't yield for that so vulnerable to less exposed fillies.
Well-bred filly (full-sister to Hong Kong three-time Group 1 winner Lucky Nine) won her second start at Wolverhampton before second under a penalty at Chelmsford. Enters handicaps now an unexposed filly from a top yard so very much respected.
Second over C&D two starts back was here best effort at the time and followed it up with another good AW second at Newcastle last time. Up 2lb but seems to be improving now so should again make a bold bid.
