Soft ground winner over this trip at Thirsk last time. Yet to race on ground faster than good. Up 2lb for her nursery debut, and will need to improve again to follow-up, but can't rule that out.
Dual distance winner this season on good/fast ground, one of them in a Musselburgh nursery, when 6lb lower. Went close again at Lingfield (good to firm) latest, when 1lb lower. Claims, although draw not ideal.
Went close in a Ffos Las novice event last month, but has not been as good as that in either nursery start so far. Another 2lb drop should help, and it is still early days, so there may well be more to come.
Dual fast ground winner, including in a C&D novice event last time. Back up just 1lb for that fast ground success, and entitled to make the shortlist.
Had shown promise in the spring, but then failed to kick on for George Scott. Better effort again on debut for this trainer at Musselburgh last week, and if able to repeat that, she would have strong claims from a preferable draw.
Went close in a C&D novice contest in July, but well below that in three runs since. Has dropped 12lb in total for those defeats, and support for her from this workable mark would be interesting.
Back up 2lb for going close in a claimer at Beverley last time, but still 3lb 'wrong' here, and needs to find more.
