Daughter of Frankel still a maiden after nine starts but comes off the back of two solid runs including when a bit unlucky over shorter last start. Lacks a change of gears at the business end but suited by this extra trip and should go well.
Yet to place in seven starts but had been shaping better in a couple of runs before disappointing on soft ground here. Has been running on as though this extra trip will suit and could well bounce back to form. Leading contender.
Just two wins from 38 starts although has been running to a consistent level of late. Last success came off 3lb lower over this C&D, albeit on soft ground and this quicker surface is against him.
Returned to the Flat following a 506-day absence to win at Brighton on stable debut. Up 3lb and in trip but hit the line strongly and remains lightly-raced with possibly more to come at this distance. Can be competitive.
12-race maiden disappointed over 1m6f at Wolverhampton on recent stable debut and didn't convince on previous try on turf when with Ed Walker. Remains a risky proposition.
Suited by this trip and going and raced to a consistent level last year. Has won fresh in the past and could be competitive on return, however still 3lb higher than last win and others may be better handicapped.
Cost 100,000 gns as a yearling and left first three runs behind when second in both handicap starts on the AW. Needs to prove she's as effective in these conditions but could be involved if handling faster ground.
Winning for the fifth time on the AW when victorious by a head over 1m3f at Kempton but proved very disappointing back on turf at Brighton. Now unplaced in all seven turf starts and questions remain.
16-race maiden on the Flat and returns from some very poor efforts over hurdles, including on latest start following wind surgery. Hard to make a case for.
