Heavy ground Haydock winner towards the back end of last season but her form this time around has been poor and she's often slowly away. Hard to fancy at present.
Has failed to land a blow in handicap company throughout 2018 and hard to see her justifying this step up in grade; others preferred.
Won two of her three starts as a three-year-old but hasn't managed to win in 10 starts this time around. Placed in Listed class on AW last time out when stepped up in trip and but looks vulnerable back at this distance.
Hasn't won since her maiden on debut but she ran well last time when only beaten 2L in a Listed race at Newmarket. Softer ground is an unknown but ought to make her presence felt if handling conditions.
Won three races last year but generally struggles up at this level and well beaten in Listed class at Lingfield last time. Drop back in trip not ideal and others preferred.
Has some placed form at Listed level but all her best form has come on a quicker surface than what's likely here and any rain would be a negative to her chance. Fair to say this isn't the strongest race for the grade so not without place claims.
Followed up two placed efforts in Listed class at the start of the campaign with a Group 3 third at Epsom in June. May come on for her recent Lingfield reappearance and not one to underestimate if any rain arrives with Atzeni on board.
Won twice as a three-year-old for her previous yard but she's struggled throughout most of this year and needs a career best to get involved.
Showed plenty in a maiden at Goodwood on debut and was impressive when following up at Chelmsford next time. Bare form of that race wouldn't appear to be anything special but she's well bred and yard are flying at present.
Made it two wins from three starts at Gowran Park last time out when showing a good attitude to hang on. There's a bit more needed at this level but less exposed than most and this isn't a strong contest for the grade.
Looked like an exciting prospect on her return to action at Sandown but she's failed to build on that since and disappointed here last time out. May be more of a long term prospect.
Won at Ripon on her second start and ran okay in a handicap at Chester in September but she's been well beaten in two Listed efforts either side of that run and has a fair bit to find on form.
Gained a second Haydock win when landing a handicap in September but very disappointing when favourite next time. Step up in trip needs to unlock improvement.
Won a maiden at Cork but has failed to justify the step up to Listed company in three starts since, slowly away on each occasion. May be capable of better and not one to write off given her connections.
