Was easy to back on her debut in a Chelmsford 7f novice late last year when she looked as though she would improve for the run. The form of that race doesn't look that strong and she has to cope with a wide draw here.
Started at 33-1 on her debut (Kempton, 1m) but showed ability (did best of the newcomers); knew what was required. Should do better with that run under her belt and looks a player despite the drop to 7f this time.
Bated Breath filly out of an unraced dam who is closely related to the useful sprinter Edward Lewis. Faces a fairly stiff task on debut but yard did have a well-backed debut three-year-old winner at Kempton recently; market to prove useful.
Very easy to back on debut and this half-sister to three winners reflected her position in the market (33-1) with a very inexperienced showing. Only beat one home on her debut; should be better for the experience, but more needed.
Newcomer from a powerful stable who are no stranger to debutante winners. By Animal Kingdom she is a half-sister to a winner at up to 1m in Initial and the useful 6f winner White Witch; no surprise to see support and her to run well.
Yard in a decent spell of form but are hardly known for their debut winners in this sphere. Half-sister to eight winners but best watched with a view to the future.
Went with very little promise on her debut over 1m at Newcastle weakening 2f out; finished soundly beaten. Started at 250-1 on that occasion and likely to be a similar price in this.
There was definite progress from her debut run when seen for the second time again at Chelmsford over 7f. Still ran green though behind an easy winner who has since won again; should be in the mix again; has a wide draw to cope with.
Newcomer by New Approach out of a dam who was a juvenile winner at up to 1m (also placed in UAE 1000 Guineas/Oaks). Yard have only had a few runners so far this year (1-9) but they have plenty of debut winners; must be respected.
Looked as though she would do better in time based on her debut run although she was still very green in a weak 6f event here last time. Chased home a long-odds on favourite (beaten 13L); needs this run for a handicap mark.
Back from a long absence having been seen just once so far (makes some appeal on pedigree) over 6f at Goodwood. Looked to need the experience there (race has thrown up winners); likely to need this.
Newcomer who has quite a taking pedigree although judged on that she will need a little further than this 7f. The yard have had debutante winners but on the whole a run is generally needed unless the market speaks in their favour.
