This trip looks to be ideal and she has been shaping like her turn is not far away. Draw has not been kind here so although she normally likes to go forward, Rob Hornby may need to be patient here.
Won on her debut for her current yard - coming back from a long absence in the process - and created the impression the best is yet to come. However, the filly has been below par in three starts since and now has a bit to prove.
Went close off lower turf marks the last twice but is a better performer on the AW. Starts life for a new yard today having been given a short break and a good run is highly likely.
C&D winner that has bounced back to form of late with wins at Redcar (soft) and Newcastle (AW) both over 6f. This trip no problem but 5lb rise makes life tougher.
Hold-up performer who bounced back to form when all out to win at Chelmsford two weeks ago. Only nudged up 2lb for that win but not guaranteed to back that effort up with everything needing to drop right.
Maiden winner who has been really struggling for form of late. Only three starts this year and is yet to beat a single rival home. Mark is tumbling but impossible to fancy at present.
Has been struggling for form so far this year and although he has dropped below his last winning mark, much more is needed on recent evidence going back up in trip.
Won his maiden over this C&D last summer but has struggled since going handicapping. Last of 10 at Kempton three weeks ago and really needs to step up with mark falling. and first-time blinkers applied.
Won back-to-back races at Ffos Las and Galway in September but has been largely out of sorts on two starts since. Only 3lb higher than for that last win so not ruled out by any means.
Has looked on a downward spiral for some time and mark has now dropped to another career low. Well held over C&D last week and needs plenty more to be winning this.
Good winner over C&D off 5lb lower two starts back. Got going too late dropped to 6f last time and will be much better suited by this test. Good draw and leading player.
