Prolific winner on turf in the past but has been struggling on grass for a long time and although this a drop in grade is hard to fancy at present.

Should come on for Bath comeback run but on all evidence she is a fast ground filly and has been withdrawn on occasions in the past when the rain falls so the forecast is a concern.

Came back as good as ever on reappearance when scoring decisively at Salisbury on fast ground. 5lb rise is fair and if she is as effective on the forecast softer ground, looks the logical danger.

Showed a little ability last year in a trio of maidens but opening mark looks a bit stiff against some battle hardened handicappers and will have to leave that form behind.

First piece of from when third in big field on Thirsk comeback but then improved bundles to power away from her rivals at Nottingham on good to soft last Sunday. More to come and very well in under her penalty.

Heavy ground winner at Goodwood last summer so will have no problem with the ground, but generally disappointing since and work to do from 4lb out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Fairy Stories (4/6), Chitra (5/2), Three Little Birds (10/1), Justice Lady (16/1), Society Star (28/1), Firenze Rosa (28/1), La Fortuna (33/1)

Verdict

FAIRY STORIES hacked up on her return to 5f at Nottingham last Sunday and is impossible to oppose on that evidence, and should land the odds. Her main serious rival looks to be Salisbury winner Chitra with Firenze Rosa won't mind the forecast rain and could hit the frame.
