Listed winner at Chester (7f, good) in July against the boys before performing creditably off a big weight in a Chelmsford handicap next time. Beaten 3L back in Listed company at Ascot (7f, soft) last week and a decent gallop will help down in trip.
Regular in these types of races and generally runs well, including when third at Ayr (5½f, good) three weeks ago. Cheekpieces swapped for first time blinkers here which will need to bring about some improvement for her to win.
Winner at Salisbury over 5f (soft) in August two runs ago but couldn't follow-up at Windsor (5f, good to firm). Possibly suited by cut in the ground and the minimum trip but still not good enough on all known form.
Didn't disgrace herself in Listed company at Ayr (5½f, good) last time out but still beaten 5½L into tenth. Blew her handicap mark in the process and will need to step forward again to make her presence felt.
Been in good heart at a lower level all season and gained a deserved win at Yarmouth (6f, good to firm) two starts ago. Ran a blinder over C&D last week in a decent handicap but life will be tougher off level weights here.
Twice placed in Listed company during her career, most recently at Salisbury (6f, soft) in June, beaten ¾L. Well beaten in the Great St Wilfred and Bengough Stakes (last Saturday) since and needs to bounce back to her absolute best to make the frame
Just touched off at Nottingham (6f, soft) back in May in a Listed event. Only beaten one rival in two starts since, most recently on the July Course (6f, good) back in June. Off since and needs to repeat her Nottingham form to have a chance.
Narrowly denied in a Listed race at Deauville (6f, good) two starts ago before a creditable fifth over 7f in a Longchamp Group 3 last time. Back against her own sex for a trainer with 34% strike-rate here (25/73) and can make her presence felt.
Impressive in novice company over 7f at Redcar (good) and Kempton (Polytrack) before finishing fifth a Doncaster Group 3 (7f) last time. Stumbled mid-race and was too keen there but drop in trip and a clean run through would entitle her to go close.
Been well-placed to pick up black type in France and Germany this season and 1m may have stretched her last time in Sweden. Placed in a Listed race over C&D last November too and dropping back in trip may suit. Entitled to respect.
Started the year well with two novice victories (both 7f) but beaten thrice in handicap company since then, including last time at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack). Big improvement required and would be a surprise winner.
Beaten ½L in Group 3 company last year before landing her maiden at Haydock (6f, good to soft). Running well on her return at Chelmsford (6f, Polytrack) in a Listed race before being hampered late on. First run since but has claims if ready to go.
Lightly raced filly who landed a hat-trick at Haydock (6f, heavy) in August. Wasn't in the best position given how the race unfolded when fourth at Ayr (5½f, good) in a Listed race last time and that effort can be upgraded.
Only five starts and improved each time, including when beaten 1¾L over C&D last Saturday in a competitive handicap. Into a Listed race for the first time today and further improvement required for her to get involved.
Won over 5f at Newcastle (Tapeta) back in June and that may be her best trip. Hasn't made the frame in numerous attempts at Listed level thus far, including her last four runs, and the same outcome likely here.
