16:30 Chester Sat 28 September 2019
Kicked off the season in style with back-to-back wins at Newbury (1m2f, soft) and Doncaster (1m4f, good); hasn't managed to beat a single rival in her last couple of starts; is slipping back to near her last winning mark.
In the midst of a productive run of form, pushed out to beat Mojave by 3¼L in a 1m4f novice median auction at Kempton in August; runner-up to the John Gosden-trained Litigious on sole previous visit to Chester (1m4½f); clear chance.
Has found it a challenge to nail down a winning opportunity since taking a Class 3 fillies' handicap by 8L at Goodwood (1m4f, soft) last August; fair third to Eva Maria at Ayr (1m2f, good) last week; competes off the same mark.
Progressing with experience since mid-summer; 5lb higher than when a decisive winner of a Class 5 maiden handicap at Brighton (1m2f, good to firm) on her penultimate start; untested on good to soft/soft ground.
Game 16-1 winner of a Class 5 fillies' novice at Lingfield (1m2f, standard) in March; hasn't excelled in three starts in handicap company (1m2f-1m4f), falling 7lb in the weights accordingly; is likely to race prominently.
Still seeking her first win on the Roodeye, which is unusual for one in the Koukash silks; has competed at this track on each of her last six starts (7½f-1m2½f); last of 14 to Parys Mountain in a Class 4 handicap a fortnight ago.
A Nottingham regular (form figures there read 32162); evidently is suited by some cut underfoot; same mark as when beaten ¾L by Capriolette in a 1m2f Class 4 fillies' handicap at Colwick Park (soft) in August; noteworthy.
Plenty of placed form, but no wins since scoring on the AW at Lingfield in January (1m) for Gay Kelleway; her best effort to date for Michael Herrington came over a similar trip at Ripon in August, when a neck second to Anna Bunina.
3lb lower than when beating Fresh Terms by a short-head (Bell Heather third) at odds of 33-1 in this race last year; runner-up at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in May, but not in peak form since; poorly drawn.
Six-race maiden (0-4 on the Flat); scarcely beating even a single rival in those starts; holds no conceivable chance whatsoever from so far out of the handicap proper; look elsewhere with confidence.
Former Irish racer; 0-6 over a range of distances (7f-1m4½f) there for James 'Fozzy' Stack; kept on at the same pace when finishing 2½L third of six to Sarah Jessica on debut for Bernard Llewellyn at Ffos Las (1m2f, good) 13 days ago.
Lightly raced on turf (0-2); sent off 33-1 when finishing 2½L third to Kyllachys Tale (Society Guest second - runs earlier in the 3.55pm race) on her second career handicap start; further improvement required in order to play a positive role.
