12/1
One of the most progressive 3-y-os around last season, winning 5 of her 8 handicap starts. Has yet to fire this term but it would be no surprise were she to bounce back after a break/wind operation.

Progressed well in second half of 3-y-o campaign and showed benefit of reappearance with a good third at Lingfield in May. Rare poor effort there 10 weeks later and can bounce back.

Landed a Nottingham handicap in May and got back on the up when runner-up there on penultimate start. Respectable fourth upped in trip at this venue since and should remain competitive.

Is thriving at present and came from a long way back to complete the hat-trick in 1m handicap at Kempton 12 days ago. Will continue to give a good account.

Bounced back to form to pick up her first win in over a year at Kempton in August, but has struggled for consistency this term and wasn't in the same form there last time.

Improving steadily and overcame a steady gallop to gain her first win at Doncaster (1m) in July. May do better still.

Verdict

FLYING WEST still hasn't had much racing and it's worth remembering she progressed well in the second half of her 3-y-o campaign, so she's expected to bounce back from a poor showing at Lingfield in July with a bang. Alpine Mistral has a similar profile to the selection and could get back on track following a break/wind operation. Conversely, Spirit of The Bay is thriving and can't be ignored.
