65,000 gns daughter of Mukhadram, run well on all three starts, latest when hooded for first time (discarded now) and finishing second of 10 in minor event at Haydock (1m, heavy) last month. Up in trip for handicap bow, may improve.
Daughter of Rio De La Plata has finished second on all four starts (including here on debut over extended-mile in August). Passed up decent opportunities on the AW when last spotted in winter. Headgear is left off now for handicap debut.
Form of her Kempton victory has not worked out well and was well-held on return to action at Chepstow (1m2f, good) this month. Yard flying, so improved effort not ruled out.
Form has gone up a notch here lately, with career-best to win 14-runner handicap over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago, finding plenty for pressure. Should be able to mount a challenge again.
Good second of nine in handicap at Ascot (1m2f, good to soft; 5-1) 10 days ago, looks a promising sort and there should be more to come. Considered here.
Ran well over C&D last month and encouraging that was her best effort since she won her maiden on the AW last May. Less promising back here 11 days ago on soft ground. Has improvement to find on form.
