Class 5 | 6f | Standard | 8 Runners | Allweather
Off time: 14:04 | Winning time: 1m 14.39s
May not have dealt with another quick turnaround when unable to justify odds-on favouritism at Chepstow (6f; good) last time when chasing a hat-trick. Given plenty of time to recover since and she may have further progress left in her.
Unable to secure hat-trick when only third at Kempton (7f; standard to slow) in March. Not seen since but may have done well for a break, and she cannot be ruled out despite being 7lb above last winning mark.
Only a half-length behind the in-form Nibras Again when third at Beverley (5f; good to firm) last week. Starting to hint her turn could be round the corner lately, and she is unexposed at this trip so is a likely candidate.
Dropped in trip to 6f for the first time after disappointing last time out when eased down at Beverley (7f; good). Mark continues to fall but she needs to offer much more promise before any faith is placed into her.
Only 2lb above her last winning mark and took a step back in the right direction when not beaten far into fourth at Doncaster (6f; good to firm). Makes AW debut and should be involved to some extent.
Bit of a surprise she has not kicked on since entering handicaps. Seasonal debut when fifth over C&D offered some encouragement but has subsequently failed to build on that. Questions to answer after being eased down to finish well-beaten last time.
Much improved this season winning two of her three starts in handicaps. Raised 6lb for her latest victory at Hamilton (5f; good) but that is unlikely to prevent further progress given she did it comfortably enough. Solid claims back on AW.
Form of the yard a concern (0-22; without a winner for 17 days). Only shown minor promise in maidens the last twice. Drops back in trip but although she is a likely improver, this is a competitive affair to make handicap debut in.
