- 5f 10y, Good to Firm (Firm in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Raised her game considerably to overcome a fitness disadvantage and rout a good field at Lingfield. Equally effective on turf and this is not a strong Listed event.
Landed a couple of class 5 handicaps last autumn and an official rating of 81 reinforces the view she has a lot to find.
Landed a couple of minor races in France, but telling she was last of eight on her only previous venture into Listed company.
By Dubawi out of a Group 3 winning sprinter. No disgrace in only attempt at this level and two of her three wins have come here on fast ground. Her yard are having an excellent week and she's close to the standard required so one for the shortlist.
Good honest handicapper who scored at Chelmsford (6f) last week. Has finished nearer last than first on her previous forays into conditions races and she is probably better over further.
Did not have to improve at all to land a couple of minor races last September, before finishing behind three other British runners in a Listed race at Chantilly. Respected on that effort but she has plenty to find with Shumookhi on Newbury form.
Failed to settle in the Nell Gwyn on Tuesday and booked for a quick reappearance with a hood to assist. Only beaten 1¼L into fifth in the Queen Mary, but looks held by Shumookhi on Newbury form in August.
Plenty of speed in the pedigree and that evident on first three starts (excuses since). Can be a tad free and she has 3L to find with Shumookhi on Newbury form, but yard have a 3-7 record in this and there may be more improvement in her.
Holds plenty of these on her victory in a Listed race at Newbury before creditable efforts in the Flying Childers and Firth Of Clyde. Would be hard to beat if at her best, but her reappearance and the fitting of cheekpieces are a concern.
