11/1

Turf winner over this trip but on very different going and yet to show her best in two starts for this new yard (previously with Andrew Balding). Still 4lb above her last winning mark so only averagely weighted; ground not certain to suit.

7/2

Started the season in fine style winning when fresh at Ayr over this trip but on much quicker ground. Has run well on soft ground (withdrawn on heavy once); nudged up 2lb for her last win and now in a higher grade; still of interest though.

2/1

First time in a handicap having bettered her juvenile efforts on her seasonal return over 1m on soft ground in a Nottingham maiden. Fourth behind an impressive odds-on winner she's of obvious interest off a suitable mark in this sphere for a top yard

9/2

Winner of a 6f heavy ground novice as a juvenile the conditions here will hold no fears although she will need to settle better than last time out (did too much too soon). This will be her first try at 7f with the yard fairly quiet at the moment.

14/1

The only C&D winner in the field she wouldn't have the same ability to progress as much as some of the younger types in this. Descended to a career-low mark last time, 1lb lower here; took a step back in the right direction last time.

7/1

Shown her best/winning form so far on Fibresand with her return to turf last time leaving more questions about her suitability for this surface. Finished well held at Leicester over 7f looking as though the trip was on the short side; doubts remain.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-9  |  J: Phil Dennis |  T: Grant Tuer|  OR: 62
9/1

Her win at Ripon (penultimate start) showed her in a good light despite blowing the start she found plenty to power home over 6f. Up in trip to 7f last time off a 3lb higher mark she ran with credit but failed to find the same power-packed finish.

Age: 3|  Weight: 8-6  |  J: Robert Dodsworth |  T: E J Alston|  OR: 59
33/1

Turf winner when trained in Ireland in claiming company over 6f (good ground) she's shown little after that in handicaps including on her GB/stable debut. Well held on that occasion she looks one of the lesser lights in this.

Forecast

Regal Banner (2/1), Polyphony (7/2), Epona (9/2), Outside Inside (13/2), Sylviacliffs (7/1), Kermouster (9/1), Rux Ruxx (11/1), Kimberley Girl (12/1), Forever A Lady (14/1), Fox Hill (33/1)

Verdict
Stepping into handicap company for the first time REGAL BANNER looks the answer to this having produced a sound comeback effort on soft ground at Nottingham recently in a race that shapes up as good form; she looks on a mark that is more than fair. The older horses can muster a strong challenge via Outside Inside and Polyphony with the former having shown some form on the prevailing ground and the latter having some solid form of late although she does have to prove herself on a soft surface. Kermouster and Epona are two others with claims but both would need to step forward on what they have shown so far.
