In fine form this spring winning 10f handicaps at Newmarket and York then completing hat-trick over 12f at York in June. Seemed not to stay upped to 1m6f latest and back at this trip has solid claims.
Won Kempton mile novice stakes in March. Tried 1m2f for first time at Newbury latest when slowly away before repeatedly denied a run and hampered, eventually finsihing fifth. Unexposed at this trip and has to enter calculations.
Landed Wolverhampton novice stakes in February over extended 1m1f. Fair fourth in Listed Lingfield Oaks Trial in May on seasonal return but disappointing last two runs in handicaps. First-time cheekpieces applied and needs to raise her game.
Beat subsequent Royal Ascot winner when landing Nottingham 1m2f h'cap penultimate start. Favourite but well held in second in four-runner 1m4f h'cap here last time. Reverts to optimum trip and has every chance on Nottingham form.
Handicap debut for Raven's Pass filly who won Nottingham mile maiden in May before seemingly unsuited by drop back in trip last time at Lingfield. Handed workable mark and market may reflect level of stable confidence.
Plenty of promise in first two runs this term then almost unseated rider at start when hot favourite for minor affair at Brighton last time, eventually finishing last of four. Handicap debut and is bred to be decent so could prove dangerous.
