Raced to a consistent level in her first four starts but took a step forwards with an easy win over this trip on soft at Lingfield. Won with plenty in hand and this looks a perfectly workable opening handicap mark.

Remains a nine-race maiden and although she's racing off a career low mark, she hasn't progressed from last year's debut third and was poor back on turf last start. Down in grade but plenty to prove.

Standout effort in handicaps when 2L third of 11 in a soft-ground event at Newbury in June. Bit below that on quick ground the last twice but gets a significant drop in grade and conditions likely to suit.

Eight-race maiden raced right up to her best when only beaten a nose over this C&D last month. Proving inconsistent but a repeat performance would see her go close again.

Has yet to impress in four starts on turf with a clear best on sole AW start. Well held on season debut and final start for Declan Carroll and now up two furlongs for new stable.

Eight-race maiden found trouble at Haydock when produced full of running but then proved a disappointing favourite at Carlisle when racing too keenly. Would prefer quicker conditions and stable quiet at present.

Has really struggled to make an impression in five well beaten starts to date. Has only beaten one rival home in two handicaps to date and easy to overlook.

Betting

Forecast

Alotabottle (5/2), Quirky Gertie (3/1), Poet's Magic (3/1), Ifton (6/1), Rosamour (10/1), Crimson Kiss (10/1), Laxmi (11/1), Maisie Moo (16/1), Illegitimate Gains (20/1), Princess Florence (20/1)

Verdict

Any rain would no doubt help QUIRKY GERTIE on handicap debut but the manner of her breakthrough win suggests she is a filly on the rise at this level. Better is expected of Rosamour down in class and in easier conditions while Poet's Magic has to be respected following her narrow defeat over this C&D.
  1. Quirky Gertie
  2. Rosamour
  3. Poet's Magic
