Not a lot to shout about in first three starts last year, with only form to speak of when third of seven in a 7f maiden at Salisbury in August. Did end campaign with a better showing in C&D handicap (100-1) so further progress not ruled out.
Only glimmers of promise in seven starts and has been well held in last four of them in handicaps. Plunging down the weights, but is hard to make a case for.
Improving with each start in 2019, latest close second to Gregorian Girl over 7f here giving him strong claims of going one better over this extra furlong.
Scored over C&D 16 days ago in a stakes race, should be willing and able to give this a decent crack from 3lb higher mark now back in a handicap. On the shortlist.
By Sepoy cost 18,000 gns as a yearling as a half-sister to three winners including a 7f AW two-year-old scorer; only modest form shown in three qualifying runs but could find more upped in distance for this handicap bow.
Camacho filly showed plenty of promise on debut but failed to build on that in her two subsequent starts. Respected yard and worth noting how the market judges her now sent into a handicap for the first time.
Born To Sea filly with plenty of winners in the pedigree but little evidence so far she is about to join those ranks. Yard had first 2019 winner in France on Wednesday, though 0-5 so far in Britain.
11-race maiden, ran well to finish 2L fourth in a couple of Wolverhampton handicaps over an extended 1m and an extended 1m1f in January. Not as good in two runs over further since, return to 1m may help.
Slowly getting the hang of things, with effort coming in 7f handicap here nine days ago when fifth. Can be given place claims, but plenty to find with runner-up Cauthen on that showing.
0-11 so far with seven handicap defeats to her name and looking exposed, although showed a glimmer of hope penultimate start over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton (fourth). Excused lesser showing over 1m2f at Chelmsford since, trip suits here.
Filly with six poor runs under her belt over a variety of trip, started all three handicaps at massive prices and never looked like defying the odds. Hard to recommend.

Cauthen (11/4), Capofaro (3/1), Sonnetina (5/1), Comeonfeeltheforce (8/1), Sussex Solo (8/1), Apron Strings (16/1), Margaret J (16/1), Nyanga (20/1), Croqueta (20/1), Milistorm (20/1), Midnite Rendezvous (66/1)
