Only made her AW debut last month and was only beaten 2l when fifth of eight at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) 13 days ago; would have gone even closer with a clear run and not dismissed lightly.

Consistency rewarded at Thirsk (7f, good to firm) where she was delivered nicely off a solid gallop; whether this pans out so favourably remains to be seen but she's running well; up 3lb.

Form & Verdict
All ten wins have come on Tapeta including six here; now 6lb higher than when completing a hat-trick in the autumn, but beaten just a nose from 1lb lower at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) on his penultimate outing and possible to forgive his two efforts either side (latest defeat back at Southwell was in a better race); respected.

Form & Verdict
Got the race in the stewards' room in a three-runner Musselburgh maiden win (7f, good) last April, but out of the frame in all five starts since and finished well behind Bobby Joe Leg at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) last month; enough to prove.

His three wins, and most of his 17 races, have come over 7f; no better than midfield in his last three starts and the drop back to 6f isn't enough to tempt.

Form & Verdict
2-22, but placed in four consecutive starts over C&D (the last two from 1lb higher) before again appearing to find 1m stretching him here 13 days ago; may enjoy the run of the race in front in this small field and could take some overhauling if he does.

C&D winner winner who went close at Southwell in December and was a good third at Wolverhampton next time; however, his form has dipped with sixth-place finishes over C&D the last twice and he needs to raise his game.

Placed twice around the turn of the year but he was disappointing over C&D last month, stopping quickly; that run casts a shadow but he's certainly handicapped to go well.

Form & Verdict
Out of the frame in all nine starts on turf in Ireland but, having been well backed, she showed much more when second of 13 on stable/AW debut at Chelmsford 11 days ago; that was only a 0-50 classified, though, and more will be needed at this level.

Runner-up at Newcastle (1m, AW) last month then won comfortably here (1m1f, good) three weeks ago; the drop back in trip seems a likely negative but she went close over 7f on AW in February and is entitled to respect given how well she took to the course last time on her first visit here.
