Won on heavy ground (6f) at Carlisle on debut last year, when she also added a Redcar Listed event. Has been going backwards this term, however, and has dropped 24lb in total. Hard to fancy. Cheekpieces back on after poor run in a visor last time.
Was successful for the second time this year when she prevailed at Redcar (7f) back in September. Could only finish tenth of 13 here on her last run over 7f. Runs off the same mark just one week later and others are preferred.
Dual 2yo winner over 6f in nursery company who hasn't looked an easy ride this year, often pulling hard/racing freely. Spoilt her chance on every occasion this year with her attitude; she missed the break at Kempton (6f) two months ago.
Six-time AW winner who continued to mostly run well in defeat off her revised mark this year. Handicapper slow to relent but is now 1lb below her last victory and she ran another good race when third at Kempton (6f) three weeks ago. Each-way claims.
Won at Wolverhampton (6f, Tapeta) back in May but after two defeats in better races, she was tailed-off when last seen in July. That wasn't her true running but after 114 days off, will need to be 100% now back on her last winning mark.
Has rapidly improved to land a hat-trick at Southwell (all 6f, Fibresand) in recent weeks, up a total of 15lb. Hasn't been seen to best effect in four previous runs here and hard to gauge if she can transfer her form from Southwell's unique surface.
Dual 6f winner on turf this year but she's yet to reach the frame in six AW starts (0-4 over C&D). Ran poorly last week over C&D, beaten 9½L, and connections now reach for blinkers to replace cheekpieces. Easily passed over.
Shock winner at Catterick (7f) in July but in and out since, including beating only one rival in her last two outings. Was placed on at this venue back in 2017 but difficult to trust on those last two efforts.
Made all to win at Ripon (6f, good to firm) in July but was a disappointment in a Class 5 fillies' handicap here (5f) next time. Ran a little better most recently when over C&D, beaten 5½L, but was took keen and will need to settle better.
Fair handicapper on her day; has fallen in the weights of late though having moved yards this year and has yet to fire for her present connections. Well beaten twelfth of 14 over 5f here 17 days ago.
Half-sister to AW Listed winner Missed Call (1m2f-1m4f). Similar level of moderate form in three outings to date (7f-1m½f) but makes handicap debut for a leading AW yard, dropped to 6f. Interesting, particularly if the market vibes are positive.
Has filled the rear-division finishing positions on all five starts in 2019, including on debut for this yard over 1m here last month. Is also 2lb out of the handicap, which doesn't help.
