Returned to form in style when winning at Newbury last time out by 2L. 7lb higher here but could well have more to give on just her second start at this trip.
A winner on AW but yet to score in five turf starts. However, only beaten a neck at Doncaster last time out and shapes like this step up in trip could yield improvement.
Only found one too good on each of her first two starts and didn't need to improve to justify odds-on favouritism at Salisbury last time when making all in good fashion. Front two pulled a long way clear and opening mark is workable.
Made it two wins from four starts at Chelmsford last time out but she's failed to beat a rival home in her two turf starts. Shaped like a step up in trip would suit but this surface has to be of some concern.
Stayed on gamely to win on handicap debut last time out at Goodwood. Didn't give the impression she had much left that day but still lightly raced and only has a 5lb rise to cope with. Up in trip.
Looked a little unlucky when only third over C&D last month but got back on track with a win at Salisbury last time out. Step back up in trip should hold no fears but the handicapper has possibly been harsh with her revised mark.
Off the mark at the third attempt when stepped up in trip at Newbury in June. Wasn't seen to best effect at Goodwood last time out and remains capable of better than that run; dropped 1lb and interesting here.
Bolted up on debut at Newbury but failed to justify favouritism on her next two starts. Slight improved effort when fourth of 13 at Doncaster last time out but probably up against it in a race this competitive.
A winner on each of her first three starts and looked in need of the step up in trip when seventh of 20 at York last time out. First-time tongue-tie could also eke out improvement and she's respected here.
Off the mark at the third attempt in novice company at Leicester on her third start and that looked a respectable race for the grade. Opening mark looks fair and she can go well again here.
Gained a first win at Goodwood last time out when tackling 7f for the first time. Handicapper hasn't gone overboard with her initial mark and the form has worked out well, with the runner-up winning since.
Novice winner at Chepstow but she was disappointing at Chester in her follow up bid. Step up in trip should suit but others hold more pressing claims.
Soft ground maiden winner at Salisbury on her third start and that form has worked out well with the runner-up winning both her races since. Lost all chance at the start last time and it's worth forgiving that run.
Has shown better form on AW than turf to date and best effort yet when runner-up at Kempton last time (third past post). 4lb rise for that perhaps harsh though and she has questions to answer back on turf here.
Off the mark at the seventh attempt when winning a novice event at Chelmsford last month but perhaps vulnerable back on turf from 3lb higher here. Ran well on sole course start here last month.
