By War Front ($300,000 yearling); absent since finishing runner-up (5-4f) to the then John Gosden-trained Baptism (a recent Listed winner in Italy - Capannelle) at Chelmsford (1m2f) last October; cheekpieces applied for handicap debut.

7/4

Has produced reasonably solid efforts on all three starts this season (1m2f-1m4f), so it's a slight surprise to see the visor now applied; finished strongly (from a difficult position) when runner-up to Cozone over C&D 17 days ago; 2lb higher.

7/1

Kempton fillies' novice winner (1m) on her penultimate start; was unable to lay down a serious challenge to the front pair (Dashing Roger & Folk Dance) on turf/handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m); today's extra yardage is within range on pedigree.

5/2

By Invincible Spirit (€225,000 yearling); eye-catcher (stable second-string to Wolflet) on Kempton debut (1m); has run another fair race since - runner-up to Ralph Beckett's Lady Sansa at Chelmsford (1m2f); fairly-weighted for handicap/turf debut.

15/2

Offered a consistent level of form in three starts as a juvenile (7f-1m); off the track for 277 days since finishing third to Queen Gamrah at Chelmsford (1m fillies' novice auction) last October.

18/1

Didn't play a significant role on handicap debut at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) six weeks ago and clearly it's still early days at this level, although the sneaking suspicion is that she'll find a few stronger; probably safer to look elsewhere.

Boasts a similar overall profile to Amarsanaa, and consequently the same school of thought can be applied; sits 3lb lower than when finishing seventh (18-1) to the progressive By Jove on Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) handicap debut.

Forecast

By My Side (7/4), Paradise On Earth (5/2), South Coast (11/2), No Nay Bella (7/1), Gonna Dancealot (15/2), East End Girl (10/1), Amarsanaa (18/1), Gazelle (33/1)

Verdict
John Gosden's PARADISE ON EARTH appears to be very fairly-weighted for her handicap/turf debut, and consequently she should play a leading role in a reasonably winnable Class 5 fillies' handicap. Her main threat looks likely to emerge from the newly-visored By My Side. Michael Bell's charge has shown a consistent level of form so far this season (including over C&D), and a positive display from her would serve to strengthen the case for Immortal Beloved in the Sandown finale (3.55pm). Of the remainder, proven race-fitness for the upped-in-trip No Nay Bella may just see her have the edge on the returning South Coast for third.
