Form has a very uneven feel to it with a good run often followed by a modest/below-par one. Ran respectably last time under a change of tactics (held up) on turf. Has gone close over C&D this summer and positive jockey booking here.
Won 5f novice events at Lingfield and Newcastle last winter and has possibilities on handicap for from this mark now returned to the minimum trip having shaped well enough at Kempton over 6f this month.
Solid AW performer who produced a career-best with narrow win over C&D in June and ran as well as expected since on turf at York. Should have a go being rated only 2lb higher than previous success here.
Not beaten far here over 6f in one previous AW start and comes here having finished second at Yarmouth (5f, good to firm) on second outing for this trainer. Should mount a challenge.
Winner at Ripon back in May and has continued in good form since then, runner-up in five of her last six starts. Tends to be arriving late to the part and will need the breaks but claims are there to see.
Thriving on Bath's turf this summer with figures of 2132, has also won over 5f on the AW at Chelmsford in May. Good run thus month taking second at Bath, competitive from same mark now.
Redcar maiden handicap winner in June (5f, good to soft) but well enough held on turf in three starts since. Must improve for switch to this sphere first time.
11-race maiden placed in three consecutive AW starts earlier this year, including over this C&D. Well held recent off a short break on turf at Catterick and seemingly must improve on these terms to score.
