Back to form of late, finishing second in handicaps here on last two starts. Got going too late over 7f last time, and this longer trip is well within her compass.

Second over 1½m at Newbury in July, and has since filled the same spot over hurdles at Stratford. Drop in trip a minor worry, but no reason why she won't continue in form.

Still a maiden, and while she ran to form on her penultimate start, she was below form when 8¼L eighth of 11 to Itizzit at Windsor last time. Hood refitted now, but yard still struggling for winners.

Now 9lb higher than when winning on handicap bow over 1¼m at Salisbury in May, but has improved in defeat since, and was a creditable 3¼L third of 6 to Geetanjali over C&D last time. Should be on the premises again.

One or two blips on her record but reliabkle on the whole, and got back to her best when second of 9 to Graceful Act in an amateur handicap at Beverley last time. Comes into the reckoning on that effort.

Found improvement when runner-up at Windsor on handicap debut, but hasn't maintained that, and beaten 10L when fourth to Geranium at Newmarket last time. Others preferred at present.

Has been struggling to make a major impact, but is running to a consistent level in handicaps, and has been dropped 12lb since the start of the campaign. Ran well enough when third of 12 to Verify at Windsor last time, and eased another 1lb since.

Took advantage of easing mark when landing a handicap at Nottingham in July, and has run to a similar level when placed on both subsequent starts. Does seem where the handicapper wants her, however, and needs a couple to falter.

Won at Lingfield and Brighton for her new yard last month, but good run came to an abrupt halt at latter track on her latest start. 10lb higher than initial win, and may have to wait for easier openings.

Victorious by a short-head in a 1m handicap at Brighton in June, but that is well ahead of anything she has achieved before or since, and she makes no great appeal from out of the handicap here.

Betting

Forecast

Seascape (2/1), Delicate Kiss (10/3), Scenesetter (6/1), Shifting Gold (8/1), Colony Queen (10/1), Toybox (10/1), Arctic Spirit (12/1), Shufoog (14/1), Cafe Sydney (20/1), Miss Recycled (50/1)

Verdict

None of these appeal as having anything in hand of the handicapper, but a few arrive at the top of their game, notable DELICATE KISS, who found 7f too sharp here last time, and will appreciate this stiffer test. Seascape is also holding her form well, and looks next best, although a case can be made for Shufoog and Colony Queen.
