Sprint-bred filly who was well beaten on Windsor debut, and improved just a little when 6L seventh of 8 to Punchbowl Flyer at Brighton last time. Needs this for a handicap mark.
Showed noting on racecourse bow, and while she was more clued up in a 5f novice here last time, she was still beaten 8½L in sixth, and makes little appeal on that evidence.
Mix of speed and stamina in her pedigree, and she shaped as if having a fair level of ability in a strong 6f novice at Newbury in July. Improvement required, but she is likely to be much more streetwise now.
Best efforts have come at Pontefract, finishing second on debut, and third in a 5f maiden there last month. Holds solid place claims from a favourable low draw here.
Due Diligence half-sister to 1m winner Political Slot. Yard 0-30 with two-year-old debutants in the past five years, and easily opposable on that basis.
Stablemate of Littlemissattitude, and while this half-sister to 6f winner Manipura ought to find a race in due course, this initial outing is sure to be needed.
Both dam and grand-dam were unraced (from family of Zafonic), and this homebred filly by little-known sire King Raedwald didn't offer much at big odds on debut here last month.
Beaten just ½L on nursery debut at Yarmouth, but that form hasn't worked out, and she has been rather disappointing in two starts since. Claims with her best foot forward, though, and this race lacks depth.
Universal filly who was unfancied and beaten 14½L on debut here over 5f a fortnight ago. Type to do better than that poor form, but likely to need time.
Shaped quite well after a slow start here on racecourse bow, and improved from that when 4¼L fourth of 12 to Jamaheery in a 6f novice at Yarmouth. More to come, and looks the one they have to beat on balance.
