Lightly-raced maiden. 14/1 upped markedly in trip, third of 6 in minor event at Musselburgh (12.5f, good to firm) 18 days ago. More required.

Little show in pair of minor events/maiden so she's tough to recommend now significantly upped in trip.

12/1
Failed to see the trip out when eighth of 10 in handicap at Lingfield (12f, AW, 14/1) 31 days ago. Will prove suited by this return to 1¼m and she ought to be in the mix.

28/1 and visored for 1st time, sixth of 9 in handicap at Beverley (12.1f, good to firm) 11 days ago, merely passing beaten rivals. Others more persuasive.

7/4
Visored for 1st time, settled better and ran creditably when second of 9 in handicap (8/1) at Beverley (12.1f, good to firm) 11 days ago. Looks competitive on form.

Seventh of 8 in handicap at this C&D (good, 200/1) 5 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere.

10/3
Lightly-raced maiden. Cheekpieces on for 1st time, failed to improve when seventh of 9 in handicap at Beverley (12.1f, good to firm, 22/1) 3 months ago. Should make more of a splash dropped to this grade.

Forecasts

Foreshadow (7/4), Braes Of Doune (11/4), Quercus Robur (10/3), Ballynaveen Boy (10/1), Decoding (12/1), City Vaults (16/1), Broctune Azure (28/1), Pasha Bay (33/1)

Verdict

Recent solid form is thin on the ground so the tentative vote goes to FORESHADOW. John Quinn's charge settled better with a first-time visor applied when runner-up at Beverley last month so, dropped into this company for the first time, he's fancied to belatedly open his account. Decoding is feared most with the return to this 1¼m trip in her favour, with Quercus Robur completing the shortlist.
