Runner-up to the admirable Lady Buttons in a Wetherby Mares' Listed race (2m) on her penultimate start and upped a further 4lb for her most recent 2m Huntingdon win; any considerable rain could place a sizeable dent in her chances of following up.
Back over hurdles recently following a productive spell on the Flat; driven out to repel Shambra by a neck at Fontwell (2m3f, good) latest; a subsequent 3lb rise is fair but equally this rates as a slightly deeper race (Cl 2).
Front-runner who boasts C&D winning form (1-1) and also handles soft ground; below par on her seasonal reappearance (2m4f) but further wind surgery could prove helpful; much respected back at the minimum trip.
On an upward curve in the spring winning back-to-back 2m heavy ground contests at Towcester and Hereford; now 5lb higher than for the second of those two wins; raised in grade (Cl 4 to Cl 2); forecast rain could prove to be a leveller.
