Yet to win a handicap but has some decent form to her name and showed she retains enthusiasm with a near miss behind a potentially decent rival at Kempton late last month. Should be fitter for the run; dangerous to underestimate.
Won over an extended 5f at Bath last June but lost her way soon after; been off since September and plenty to prove as she tries a mile for the first time.
Both career wins came over 7f at Leicester but the filly shouldn't have too many issues with the trip here. More of a concern is her absence since September and the fact she has switched yards since last seen. The betting can guide this time.
Dropping to an attractive mark and wasn't beaten far in a similar race over C&D on her penultimate start. Not so good latest but the first-time hood might be a good concentration aid. Worth a betting check with a top AW rider in the plate.
Has won a couple of low-grade handicaps over 7f but yet to conclusively prove that a mile suits her ideally. Not seen action since September so readiness for the battle a further aspect to take on trust.
Set to race from just 1lb above her winning mark at Southwell in December and held her form reasonably well since. No respite from the handicapper and can be slowly away but otherwise solid claims in an ordinary race that is within her capabilities.
Related to winners on the AW but showed very little in seven starts for John Gosden and is probably best watched on debut run for a new yard.
Gone well at this course but best form been posted over 1m at Chelmsford. No obvious excuse for a poor run latest and comes into this with a bit to prove.
Won a handful of races for her former yard - including a C&D success a couple of seasons ago. Steady decline since then, however, and the mare now has a bit to prove after failing to make an impact last time. (Second start after wind surgery.)
Career best effort was posted at this course but the mare is still a maiden on the AW and her form was moderate at best last season. Been off since October and easy to leave out of the betting plans despite having the best of the draw.
