12/1
Has thrived this year, building on her reappearance effort to land back-to-back handicaps at Leicester/Chelmsford (at 10f) this spring. Ran below par when last of 6 at Yarmouth since though, and no easy task on against a host of low-mileage 3-y-os here.

6/1
Fair filly who has improved for the step up to 10f in recent weeks, just no match for one on a steep upward curve at Ripon (10.8f) 23 days ago. Entitled to hold more chance now handicapping and expected to give a good account.

Lightly-raced maiden. Best effort yet when third of 8 at Nottingham (10.2f) in May, doing best work at the finish, but unable to match that when sixth of 7 over 11.5f at Windsor 10 days later. Given a longer break ahead of this and drop back in trip may help.

Mastercraftsman filly who has showed definite signs of promise in 2 of her 3 starts in maiden/minor company, softer ground possibly not ideal when fourth of 5 at Haydock (11.6f) 16 days ago. Better to come now handicapping.

4/1
Modest form at best in trio of starts as a juvenile but much more to like about her return second on handicap bow at Lingfield (10f, AW) 3 weeks ago, giving best only to another improver. Likely she can progress further and yard in good form.

Olympic Glory filly who was steadily progressive in maidens and she stepped up again when staying on for third on handicap bow at Leicester (8.2f) 3 weeks ago. Move up to 1¼m a plus on that evidence and interesting with more to come.

Nathaniel filly who offered promise on second of 3 starts in novice company on return at Epsom (8.5f) in April. Never a factor at Windsor early on last month but increase in trip may suit now attentions are switched to handicaps. Market should guide.

Kingman filly. Dam 9f-1¾m winner, half-sister to smart winner up to 1m (stayed 1¼m) Fly At Dawn. Definite promise in 2 of her 3 starts in backend novice/maiden events at 1m and she's well worth a look now handicapping on return with Buick in the plate.

Had more racing than most but she arrives here having run well under a positive ride when second over 1¾m at Nottingham, headed last ½f but keeping on. The third that day has boosted the form and she should go well again.

Forecasts

Albion Princess (6/4), Beautiful Colour (4/1), Yorkindness (6/1), You're On Mute (15/2), Cianciana (17/2), Flower Of Thunder (12/1), Big Bear Hug (16/1), Meleri (22/1), Craft In Silk (28/1)

Verdict

ALBION PRINCESS showed definite promise in backend maiden/novice events last term and, from what rates a handy opening mark now handicapping, she earns the vote with the booking of William Buick catching the eye. Beautiful Colour ran really well on her handicap debut and is a big threat, along with You're On Mute and Cianciana.
