Looked to be classy sort when rattling up a hat-trick in the early stages of the season but progression seemingly stopped, including 7L last of six in similar handicap at Ascot (1m) last time. Bounce back required under hefty penalty.
Usually consistent and looked to have some more progression in her when winning 1m2f Windsor handicap by 2L in August. Not seen since and up in class for this so requires a career-best.
In good form on her last three starts and took another leap up the handicap ladder to land similar event at Newbury (1m) in July. Off the track since and has another 4lb penalty to contend with but merits respect.
Winner on the soft at Chester (7f) two starts ago but found typical strong Sandown handicap too hot to handle (1m) on latest start. This looks an easier contest so every chance she can bounce back.
Landed Nottingham maiden two starts ago before racing too freely when last of seven in 1m handicap on the July Course. Not seen since June and has changed hands too so may be best watched.
Made all to win at Lingfield two starts ago and arguably unlucky to finish second when short of room in Sandown handicap (1m) last month. Harshly raised 3lb for that so career-best is needed.
Winner on debut but things haven't dropped right since and was well-beaten in 7f Chester novice at the end of last month. Ground may be a concern.
