Dual C&D winner. Arrives on the back of a disappointing effort at Leicester last time. Acts on soft ground, and if you can forgive her that latest effort, she is a player.
Scored at Wetherby (1m2f, good to firm) in May, and has run well from higher marks since. Should be very competitive again, provided she handles softer conditions.
Well held at Goodwood last time, but had previously been on an upward curve, and scored at Catterick on fast ground (1m4f) two starts ago. Not yet exposed, and if acting on soft, she has claims.
Had run well twice in succession before scoring over extended 1m at Beverley last time. Up 6lb, and goes on good to soft (unraced on softer). Could improve for this step up in trip. Interesting.
Inconsistent this season. Ran well when a good second from this mark over this sort of trip at Haydock on her penultimate start. Well held at Chester last time, and although she acts on soft, she is hard to be confident about.
Had run well here when second over C&D (soft) under the tutelage of Gay Kellway, but didn't have the speed for 7f when making her stable debut earlier in the week. Back up to a more suitable distance, but needs to improve.
