Novice winner over 6f at Windsor last summer and not beaten all that far into sixth in valuable Doncaster Stakes race in September. Ground perhaps too soft on final start, watch betting on seasonal bow from fair mark.
Well-bred New Approach filly who won on debut at Newmarket in October over 7f, just edging out a subsequent well-regarded winner. Scored on the AW four weeks ago on seasonal bow and sort to do better now handicapping.
Dubawi filly closely related to the very smart Flaming Spear. Has won an AW novice and twice gone well under positive tactics on turf from her three starts. Now makes handicap debut and is respected for top trainer.
Went into many a notebook when impressive on debut on the July Course over 7f at Newmarket but a little disappointing in three runs since, including when eighth of nine in handicap at Sandown (1m2f, good to firm) on return to action last month.
Improved on a modest debut when a decisive scorer at Haydock (1m, soft) last month (I Am Magical only second, won since). Since run as well as might be expected in Listed Cheshire Oaks at Chester (1m3f, soft). Makes handicap debut, scope for more.
Declaration of War filly formerly with Hugo Palmer. Behind La Voix Magique at Haydock last month in second (1m, soft) but has since opened account 1m good to firm Newmarket handicap on Friday, overcoming traffic. Has a 6lb penalty for that success.
