- Strawberry Lipo At The Beauty Centre Fillies' Novice Median Auction Stakes (Class 4)
- 1m 2f,
- 10 Runners
- Surface: Polytrack
Well beaten 22L sixth of eight in a novice race over an extended 1m at Beverley (good-to-firm) on debut in April. Probably best watched on return from a short break.
Off the mark at the first attempt when winning by 3½L in a 1m maiden race at Redcar (good-to-firm) when making her debut a month ago. Penalised for that victory and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Struggled when beating just one rival home in a 13 runner 1m2f novice event at this venue on debut earlier this month. Others hold stronger claims.
Placed off a mark of 72 in a handicap over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton in March. Returning from a break when pulled up at Ascot (1m2f, good-to-soft) last month and looks capable of returning to form.
Good second in a 1m2f novice race at Wetherby (good) when debuting at the end of April. Decent fourth over the same trip at Salisbury (good-to-firm) subsequently and is a leading contender once more.
Improved on debut effort when runner-up in a small field firm ground 1m2f novice event at Bath last time out. Likely more needed in this contest however.
Struggled in two starts to date most recently when 24L last of 14 over this trip at Sandown (good-to-firm) three weeks ago. Others make more appeal.
Shaped as if in need of the experience when 24L 11th of 12 in a 7f maiden at Newmarket (good-to-firm) on debut last October. Absent since and bred to appreciate this step up in distance.
Beaten 34L when finishing tenth in a 1m2f novice contest at Nottingham (soft) on debut last month. Probably best watched at present.
Failed to figure in two outings so far most recently when 16L fifth in a 1m novice race at Brighton (good-to-firm) a month ago. Others make more appeal stepping up in trip.
