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.

Forecast

Fannie By Gaslight (13/8), Inclyne (11/4), Lady Alavesa (11/2), Lady Mascara (7/1), Arctic Spirit (12/1), Cuban Sun (14/1), Katiesheidinlisa (14/1), Kvetuschka (16/1), Bell Heather (20/1), Ebqaa (25/1), Triple Nickle (33/1), J'ouvert (40/1), Piccolo Ramoscello (100/1)

Verdict

Ebqaa took this race at odds of 33-1 last year, with the Dr Marwan Koukash-owned Bell Heather a close third. However, neither is considered as the potential solution this time around. Lady Mascara appeals as a progressive type for James Fanshawe, but how she takes to the switch to softer ground remains to be seen. Such a factor won't trouble the returning-to-form Fannie By Gaslight or the Nottingham regular Cuban Sun, with both fillies' entitled to have a major say. However, the preferred option is just the August Kempton winner INCLYNE. She remains feasibly handicapped in the midst of a positive spell for the Kingsclere handler Ian Balding.
