In better form May/June winning over 7f at Thirsk on good ground before the handicapper started to tighten his grip (5lb above last winning mark). Took a step back in the right direction last time but ground/course remain question marks for now.
Scored on just her second run for this yard at Hamilton last time over 6f beating Blank Canvas comfortably in a minor event. Revised weights suggest it will be close with her old rival again; the fact that she's proven on soft/heavy ground a plus.
Suited by the give in the ground when resuming winning ways at Ayr over this trip last month (stamina came into play, won over further). Handled conditions like she will face today well last time; course winner over 7f; sound chance off this mark.
Handicap debut having been beaten by Bedtime Bella over 6f at Hamilton last time (good ground); faces very different conditions now. May develop in handicaps (4lb better off with winner from last time); speedy sort though, may not last home.
Well backed on her stable debut over 6f (AW); turned in her best effort of the season especially as she raced close to an overly strong pace. That performance makes her interesting off the same mark if she can handle the different conditions.
Produced a career-best under different tactics when scoring with a bit in hand last time at Redcar (6f, good/soft). Slowly away she responded well to pressure (still showed the odd quirk); now has to reproduce that under far more testing conditions.
