Two wins in 2018 but following a promising effort at York last month, didn't get a clear run when well backed at Hamilton recently. Better than shown there but takes on some improvers tonight so this a harder task.
Kempton win sole start at 2. Very highly tried this year and Listed contest at Newbury and Royal Ascot handicap not surprisingly proved too much. This far more realistic and has to be respected in this grade for powerful yard.
Dual winner as a juvenile and although starting this campaign with couple of fair efforts, last two runs have been harder to excuse and needs to bounce back, though several from this yard can do so.
Tough and consistent sort for whom all ground seems the same. Has done all her racing to date at 6 and 7f so needs to prove she is as effective at this longer trip.
Took advantage of the drop to 0-70 company when getting off the mark at Leicester last month but the 6lb rise incurred takes her back to this higher level and needs to improve again to follow up though that isn't out of the question.
Runner up all four starts at two at around this trip. Below that form on comeback run here in May but has had wind surgery since so entitled to leave that form behind.
Won on debut over 7f in January and has ran better in defeat both runs since at this trip. Now on turf for the first time so bit to prove especially as she has been off since April.
Front runner who beat two rivals to take this race last year. Took advantage of the plum draw to make all at Chester and lost little in defeat at Catterick since but this harder although once again has an ideal draw to attack.
Placed three times for Marco Botti last season but has shown little in two starts for current yard this term and others make much more appeal.
Well bred filly who showed some ability in maidens prior to her 4L fourth behind Al Messila on recent handicap bow. Enjoys a 6lb pull now and still early days so should have good deal more to come for top yard.
Improved of late with a Carlisle win followed by a second to in-form rival at Doncaster last week. Yet to race over this far and this a hotter contest though is at least at the top of the game.
