Form & Verdict
Four siblings won for the yard; has come on a ton since handicapping on turf, looking better the further she went at Ayr (1m2f, good to firm) and proving well suited by the stiffer test when making all at Carlisle (1m3f, good to soft); effectively 8lb higher here but good chance of hat-trick.

Completed a hat-trick (1m2f-11.5f) in June, looking progressive; however, shot up the weights for those wins and has found things harder the last twice; this new trip needs to eke out extra from her.

J: Joe Fanning

T: Charlie Johnston

Completed a quickfire hat-trick last month, which means she's 3-3 since handicapping and switched to turf; won well each time, most recently at Windsor (11.5f, good to firm; Class 5); now upped two grades off a much sterner mark but could well progress further; has to be feared.

Form & Verdict
Won his third handicap as 2yo (1m, good to soft) at Brighton; seemed to answer the stamina query when a keeping-on third in a fair C&D race on return last month (good to firm, refitted blinkers); gelded since; solid enough but probably up against it if Alpina Express is still on song.

1m turf winner as a 2yo; not fired in AW handicaps this winter but he's had a wind operation since last in action (his second in the last seven months); risky despite a reduced mark.

Form & Verdict
Won 7f maiden last summer; mixed record in handicaps but ran better when runner-up over C&D (soft) two starts ago and was taking on some unexposed rivals when sixth at Salisbury next time (third and fourth have won since); now goes in cheekpieces with improvement needed.

Won at Windsor (11.4f, good; under Georgia Dobie) in July; mixed record but her only start since was creditable when a close third of five over 1m5f; unraced over this far and it needs to spark some improvement.

Form & Verdict
Dropped to selling company for sole win (1m, AW); not obviously well treated on the strength of a front-running fifth in 1m4f Newbury handicap (first attempt at the trip on turf) and has work to do again.

Form & Verdict
Got the better of Lexington Hero over 1m4f on the AW in March but has found turf handicaps harder work over C&D, 1m2f and 1m4f on last three starts; not coming down the weights quickly enough to make much appeal.

Rated 11lb lower than when last successful over C&D this time last year; often slowly into stride, but pretty consistent since introduced to blinkers; this probably represents a better fit than the 1m2f he tackled at Chelmsford last time.
