Poet's Voice filly who has shown some ability on all three starts. Didn't look easiest of rides at Lingfield when third last time in 7f novice stakes, but may well have still been green. Handicap debut here for top yard.
Four starts last summer for Richard Hannon, running respectably on final three occassions including half-length second in Nottingham 6f nursery final run in July. Joined current in-form yard last week and worth checking for any market confidence.
Promise first three starts and has run well last two outings in handicap company, going close at both Lingfield and Wolverhampton last month. Raised 3lb following latest second in 7f handicap but should still be on the premises.
Moderately progressive form in three starts last year, most recently when four-length second in Epsom 7f auction stakes in late-August. Not seen since and makes handicap debut so fitness has to be taken on trust.
Rare AW runner for top jumps yard. Modest form in three starts for David Evans prior to joining current connections in last month when beat one home over 6f in Wolverhampton handicap. 4lb lower and extra furlong will help after keeping on latest.
Plenty of promise when placed first two starts but has rather lost his way in three outings since then. Well beaten in 1m handicap here and 6f Newcastle event last time. Eased 4lb since then but seems out of form.
Failed by just a length when third on debut at Yarmouth 7f this summer, but well beaten odds-on time after and again disappointed third start. Returns from four-month break and makes handicap bow off modest mark. Fair chance if back to her best.
Little to crow about on first five starts but did better last time on first start since being gelded finishing third in Chelmsford 7f handicap. First-time cheekpieces added and runs off same mark so should be thereabouts.
