3/1

Broke her duck here last season and having landed a handicap at Wolverhampton has run well since in slightly better class sprints. Now drops down to the minimum trip for the first time but seems to have the speed to cope.

Shrewdly placed to win valuable 7f contest in Doha in the winter. Best run since when blinkered and trying 5f for the first time at Goodwood last month when not having the clearest of runs and should have more to come at this trip.

Five wins this season have all been gained over 6f but has shaped as though she is worth a go at this minimum distance, and only 1L behind Furious when they met here in June. Mid division since in Listed sprint in Ireland.

Improved for front-running tactics with victories at Salisbury and Windsor. Not so good when unable to lead at Goodwood last time and much depends on whether he can get to the front here.

Stiff tasks though not disgraced in Listed sprints this season and ran better than final position indicates in first time cheek pieces (retained here) in Goodwood handicap last time. 3lb drop for that is fair and no surprise to see here run well.

Had three of these rivals behind her when caught on line in Goodwood handicap last time. Debut win at two was on the AW so return to this surface should be fine and trainer continues in form. Looks sure to play a part.

More exposed than these and although continuing to run with credit, this is a tougher race than those she has been contesting and needs to eke out a bit of improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Furious (3/1), Concierge (4/1), Mercenary Rose (4/1), Probability (9/2), Amplify (7/1), Blame Roberta (8/1), True Hero (16/1)

Verdict

A good fillies sprint handicap and a Goodwood contest last month may hold the key. Mercenary Rose came out best on that occasion but with an 8lb pull BLAME ROBERTA, who didn't get the clearest of passages, could be the value to turn the tables. Furious shapes as though this drop down to the minimum should be fine looks best of the rest.
  1. Blame Roberta
  2. Mercenary Rose
