Hasn't won since a C&D victory in June 2018 but has been fairly consistent. Narrowly defeated on her last two starts, most recently at Epsom (6f, good) six days ago. Not badly handicapped and another good effort wouldn't surprise.
Made a winning debut over C&D 13 months ago but a mixed bag in defeat since then. Ran well at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) when beaten 1¾L into second. Well-beaten favourite since then at Lingfield (7f, standard) which gives her something to prove.
Has won three times this season, including once over this trip on soft ground but her best form has been over 7f. Rallied late on to snatch third at Chepstow (7f, good) 16 days ago and is only 2lb above her last winning mark.
Lightly raced; this her ninth start. Won over C&D (good to firm) two runs ago beating Lalania despite missing the break and wasn't disgraced at Epsom (6f, good) 23 days ago after racing too keenly. Going the right way and is dangerous.
Behind Great Shout over C&D (good to firm) on 15th August and suffered another defeat at Bath (5½f, firm) last time. Return to this venue may help but not sure to reverse the form with her aforementioned rival despite 3lb swing at the weights.
Won this race last year off 6lb lower mark. In good form during the first half the season culminating in a win at Newmarket (5f, good to soft) in June. Not in the same form in two runs since then and returns after 55-day break.
Took a big step forward on all starts for this yard when winning at Doncaster (6f, good to soft) six weeks ago. Never got involved here over 7f (good to firm) just four days later and that run may have come to soon. Drop back to 6f also a positive.
