Yard always need respecting with their Flat runners and this one has won all her Flat starts (3-3) scoring in Listed company when last seen on the level. Has to give weight away all round but looks to have more to offer at this level.
Useful filly who was making a comeback from a fair absence when fourth behind Diamond Hill last time; entitled to come on for that run. Only one won race in her career but well up to this level; should run her race but has a little to find overall.
Decent handicapper who makes her first step into this company having failed to stay last time over 2m plus at Ayr. Back down in distance but faces a tough test at the weights; place would be the best she could realistically hope for.
Took a Lingfield staying handicap (1m5f, soft) back in May; highly tried since then in Group/Listed company running consistently without looking like winning. Same level of performance expected now, hard to see her troubling the principals.
Well backed winner of a Haydock handicap (1m2f, heavy) in June before not being able to live up to that form when tried in Listed company at Pontefract when last seen. Will enjoy the ground but faces a difficult task at the weights.
In better form last year when she completed a hat-trick at up to 1m4f and with ease in the ground on occasions. Not been in the same form this year and again ran below form last time at Goodwood over today's trip; one of the lesser lights in this.
Stepped straight into Listed grade after winning over 1m on her debut running with credit on the last two occasions (form not that solid). Looks hard to place (can race freely); sure to make her presence felt though; stable first choice.
Lightly-raced sort who remains a maiden although her yard are good with this sort and progress can't be ruled out despite being highly tried here. Couldn't match the winners burst of speed last time on the AW; conditions will suit better here.
Tough handicapper who deserves another chance at this level having run well in testing conditions in this company at Ascot last time. That was her best race so far and a repeat of that would see her go close here with conditions to suit.
Comes into this on a hat-trick having won her last two starts in handicaps but will find this a lot tougher although conditions won't be a drawback. Has a smart pedigree so there may be some scope for further progress but only a punchers chance here.
