Put a series of dismal efforts behind her when running out a clear-cut winner at Catterick in July but has followed that with a trio of tame efforts making her hard to fancy.
August score his 12th at the track and ran soundly enough since when fourth of 12 at Catterick. Always one to respect at his second home and a sound each-way investment although vulnerable to less exposed sorts.
Dual turf winner in the spring looked at the grip of the handicapper since but mark back on the slide now and he is effective here.
Fibresand debut for this gelding who was narrowly touched off over the trip at Nottingham latest. Back to last winning mark and penchant for soft ground persuasive that he will enjoy it here.
Runs well here as May success showed but yet to hit top form after an 11-week summer break in below-par efforts here and at Doncaster.
Won here in March and while his eight races since have been extremely unconvincing his 2-3 course record means he isn't one to take lightly especially with mark 2lb below last win.
Three-time course winner 2lb lower than when fourth to re-opposing Crosse Fire here last time out. Often runs well on Fibresand and has each-way prospects here.
July Catterick winner ran third there next but hasn't beaten a rival since in two dismal efforts at Beverley and Doncaster which greatly dampens enthusiasm.
Not the most consistent and balance of evidence suggests that even with her handicap mark sliding others are more likely sorts.
Doubled his career tally with victory in a 5f handicap on the Lingfield last time out where he made virtually all. Won here on only previous visit so plenty of positives today and looks a leading contender.
Consistent run in the spring now hard to look back at with optimism after three most recent efforts were disappointing. Does enjoy the Fibresand but being out of the handicap the final nail in her coffin.
