Course winner. 6¼ lengths fifth of 9 to Delicate Kiss in handicap (11/2) at Sandown (8f, good) 36 days ago.
Course winner. 12/1, creditable sixth of 15 in handicap at this course (7f) 7 days ago, slowly away.
13/2, eighth of 9 in handicap at Nottingham (10.2f, heavy) 15 days ago. Back down in trip. Makes polytrack debut. Can make presence felt if shrugging that effort aside.
Eleven runs since last win in 2019. Bit below form fifth of 11 in handicap at this C&D (18/1) 49 days ago.
Blinkered for first time, creditable third of 15 in handicap at this C&D (18/1) 21 days ago, never nearer. Has to be taken seriously.
7/2, career best when winning 9-runner handicap at Sandown (8f, good) 36 days ago. Up 5 lb by attitude will hold him in good stead.
33/1, tenth of 12 in handicap at Newbury (8f, good). Off 132 days. Difficult ask.
Two wins from 6 runs this year. Career best when winning 13-runner handicap (15/8) at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 23 days ago. Not taken lightly.
First run since leaving Roger Charlton and career best when winning 10-runner handicap at Lingfield (8f, AW, 3/1) 30 days ago. Should have more to offer.
8/1, respectable fourth of 12 in handicap at Newmarket (8f, good to firm) 89 days ago.
Respectable fifth of 12 in handicap at Haydock (8.2f, good to soft, 17/2) 27 days ago.
4/1, career best when winning 8-runner handicap at Ayr (8f, good) 23 days ago, bit in hand. Up 6 lb in a better race.
C&D winner. Creditable third of 8 in handicap at this course (10f, 14/1) 21 days ago. Visor back on. Can give a good account.
Lightly-raced winner. Course winner. 6/1, eighth of 9 in nursery at York (7.9f, soft), doing too much too soon. Off 12 months. Very hard to make a case for.
Respectable sixth of 10 in handicap (4/1) at this course (10f) 12 days ago.
Conscious (5/1), Toronado Queen (5/1), Ajax Tavern (6/1), Starry Eyes (15/2), Earth And Sky (9/1), Delicate Kiss (11/1), Elmejor (12/1), The Met (12/1), Verify (12/1), Catch My Breath (12/1), Reine De Vitesse (16/1), Mr Scaramanga (25/1), Love Destiny (25/1), Oslo (25/1), Transition (50/1)
It's been a luckless campaign for EARTH AND SKY so far and she'll likely have to be dropped in from stall 13, but she's clearly on a mark she can exploit so is worth siding with in what is admittedly a very competitive race. Conscious and Toronado Queen both chase a hat-trick and head the list of dangers.
