Had a busy campaign in 2018 but only managed to win a weak claimer at Beverley in September. Poor efforts in three starts since and the filly now has a good bit to prove.
Doubtful she ran according to plan last time but there was some promise in her prior starts and she is handicapped about right.
A gelding operation, blinkers and a switch back to sprinting combined to positive effect last time. Could have been hit with more than this 3lb rise so has to go on the shortlist.
3lb lower than when denying a warm favourite at Newcastle last week. Did not go unbacked herself that day and same rider able to claim 3b
Gets a 6lb pull with Global Acclamation for 2¼L last time. That looks about right given how much that rival had in hand and she has fared less well in the draw here.
Both his victories this year have come under today's ride including a defeat of Eye Of The Water. Better drawn than last time and impossible to rule out
Nearer last than first in three quick runs for David Brown in October, and opening mark looked stiff enough on his handicap debut. Well behind Deconso that day and a 3lb drop should not be enough.
Below-par since switching yards and her latest run, when last of eight, makes her impossible to fancy against in-form rivals.
Nicely weighted with Deconso and Eye Of The Water on running here last month. However as a 14-race maiden it is hard to be confident she can take advantage, particularly after a dismal effort last time.
Her two best handicap runs have come here. Noted running on strongly last time and the extra furlong would be expected to help.
Backed down to 5/2 favourite at Newcastle but, as was the case on three prior starts there, he was made to look one-paced. Cheekpieces fitted now and connections have presumably come here hoping for a stronger gallop.
