Yet to win on turf (has been placed) with a strong gallop needed to see her at her best over this 7f trip, her second at Chepstow last time proving that point. Well weighted on her best AW form, fair chance if she gets the race run to suit.
In rude health last year when (won five times); started this year in winning form on the AW (7f); consistent form without winning since. Yet to win on turf; a decent effort over 7f last time at Newmarket suggested she could be in the mix here.
Brought back in trip for both her handicap starts so far coping well with testing conditions last time over 7f at Lingfield. Nudged up 2lb for that effort (will find conditions different here); may need more of a test that this 7f provides.
The sole C&D winner in the field it's hard to fault her consistency having run another sound race last time to back up her win here in July off 4lb lower. May prove vulnerable to any improvers in the field but one of the more solid citizens.
Yet to try this trip (shapes as though she's worth a try at it) having produced an improved effort at Leicester (6f, good) last time back from an absence. Only lightly raced from a top yard; mark demands more but could yet produce some progress.
First-time hood hardly gave rise to any improvement in her form last time over 7f at Newmarket (finished last of 11). Twice a winner last year at up to 1m for her previous yard she's struggled to find her form this year; best watched.
Confirmed recent promise when turned out again quickly off the back of a promising run to win at Doncaster with a bit in hand (first win for the yard) over 6f. Effectively runs off the same mark under a 5lb penalty; hard to stop if coping with 7f.
