Built on a couple of promising placed efforts in maiden/novice company when winning on handicap debut over this trip at Leicester (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Strong claims despite carrying a 6lb penalty.
Registered her best effort in four starts since switched to handicaps when finishing ¾L second in a 6f event on the AW at Lingfield earlier this month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained.
Victorious over 6f at two but failed to build on a promising effort over 7f at Newmarket (good) in June when finishing a well beaten sixth of seven in a 6f handicap at Leicester (good-to-soft) last time out.
Dual winner most recent over 5f at Lingfield in June. Best effort in two subsequent starts came when third over 6f at the same venue last month. Interesting to see how she fares on her return to turf.

Tuscan Oasis (7/4), Devils Roc (3/1), Ahorsecalledwanda (7/2), Colouring (7/2), Clever Candy (15/2), Sweet Pursuit (9/1), Dream World (10/1), The Blue Bower (12/1), Twice As Likely (14/1)
TUSCAN OASIS was a winner on handicap debut last time out and with further improvement likely she can follow up with a victory in this fillies' handicap event. The selection looks capable of getting the better of Devils Roc who should appreciate the step back up in trip while third place can go to Ahorsecalledwanda who wore cheekpieces for the first time when placing on her most recent start.
