15:00 Catterick Tue 10 September 2019
Better known for her hurdling exploits, she has twice won on the Flat in France. Returned to the level last time at Carlisle (1m3f, heavy), ridden by an inexperienced rider, slow away, likely to be better for the run; fairly weighted.
Attempts to complete a quick hat-trick having won at Beverley (1m2f), followed up over C&D but now 10lb higher (including a 6lb penalty). Faces his most exacting task yet but hard to rule out of this given his recent rapid progress.
Fair handicapper who despite his advancing years hasn't had that many opportunities over this sort of trip. Back to winning ways at Ayr (1m2f) in June (amateur rider's event), third to Gylo here last time (much better off at the weights).
Opened her account for the season last time over C&D (generally runs well here) off a mark much lower than she started the season off. Forged clear and still features on a good mark despite a 4lb penalty; looks sure to play a part again.
Ran poorly on his first run for this yard at Southwell in May over 7f, now takes a large step up in distance. Tongue-tie goes on for the first-time returning from a break; better expected but would need several of these to falter.
Plenty of form around here (C&D winner) who hasn't really sparkled for this yard as yet. Losing sequence is starting to stack up; looks far from certain to take advantage of a much-reduced mark despite a better run (behind Gylo) last time.
Won a 1m6f Redcar handicap in June (took advantage of a falling mark); has for the most part run creditably since, found this C&D a little too sharp/short last time when fifth to a flourishing Gylo. Would have no more than each-way claims.
Well below form at Chepstow last time out looking a touch on the slow side the effect of the cheekpieces slowly wearing off. Dropped a further 1lb but not really showing any signs of taking advantage of a gradually reducing mark.
Not disgraced when returning to action at Beverley after eight-months away from the track, the performance very much one of late gains. Back up 2f in trip here (has been tried over further before); still something to find even on her best form.
The owner of a modest career record (1-25) and unsuccessful off similar basement marks in the past. Reasonable fourth in a Redcar 1m2f seller last time (did best of those held up), would need others to underperform.
Winning hurdler who is still looking for her first win on the Flat (0-9); failed to totally convince when fourth here over C&D last time to a progressive sort. Didn't look suited by the sharp nature of the track (never landed a blow); work to do.
C&D winner but it's 35 starts since her last win that sequence merely underling her inconsistent nature. Faced a stiff task in a C&D claimer last time but her overall profile isn't convincing and others would be much preferred.
Course winner over 7f back in 2017 but hasn't fared well since then looking a regressive sort who it's hard to support. Showed nothing on his hurdling debut last time; would be a surprise winner.
Get's the sort of test that his pedigree suggests he needs (half-brother to 2m winner Dew Pond) having been tried at up to 1m so far. Now goes handicapping with improvement expected in this sphere given a test; market positivity a plus.
Quickly dropped down the handicap after his opening two efforts over 7f/1m but steps up markedly in trip. Nothing in his form so far to suggest that he'll do better in his sphere, others look to have more scope.
