Form & Verdict
All three races at about 7f; quite easy to back before winning at Newmarket on sole 2yo start (soft) and has run well in two novices since, looking ready for a step up to 1m on AW in June; takes part in a warm race now handicapping but open to improvement for last year's winning yard.

Suited by the step up to 1m when comfortably seeing off Maggie's Way and Don't Tell Claire in soft-ground Newbury handicap three weeks ago; going the right way for her top yard and can make her presence felt in this higher grade.

J: Adam Farragher

T: William Haggas

Won on debut at Newmarket (7f, soft) last October and runner-up in novices at Chester (7.5f, good) and Kempton (7f, AW) on both runs this year; shaped last time as though this step up to a stiff 1m could prompt some improvement and she might not be far away for her good yard on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict
Best form so far when winning a Nottingham handicap on reappearance (1m, soft); had lots on her plate and couldn't raise her game in Listed company since but has more realistic claims back in a handicap.

Record of 122 in handicaps, latterly finishing best of the rest behind all-the-way Ascot winner Lady Alara; a 5lb pull with that rival could make it interesting.

J: Lewis Edmunds

Unable to get a foothold in Listed events but made successful handicap debut at Nottingham in May and another useful run at this level when runner-up at Newbury in July (both 1m, soft; Don't Tell Claire third); acts on good ground but slower may prove ideal; unraced on good to firm.

Improved to win 1m Nottingham handicap (soft) on reappearance; good second to the reopposing Orchid Bloom in a 1m Newbury handicap (soft again) three weeks ago but seemed to have her limitations at Listed level exposed when behind a few of these at Sandown prior to that.

Form & Verdict
Done the rounds in handicaps since 2020 but in cracking form back at this level the last twice, most recently going down narrowly in the Kensington Palace at Royal Ascot (1m, good; acts on soft); hard to rule out with William Buick taking over; blinkers replace cheekpieces.

J: Jack Mitchell

Wasn't at her best behind some of these at Ascot a fortnight ago in a race in which she had previously finished first and second; blinkers now replaced by cheekpieces, in which she was second off 1lb higher in one of the handicaps at Royal Ascot.

Reliable here over the years, winning this race in 2021 (good to firm) and runner-up 12 months ago (good to soft); another stout effort when second of 19 in the Kensington Palace in June and surprising if she isn't involved again.

Dont Tell Claire

9st 11lb

J: Hector Crouch

T: Daniel & Claire Kubler

Tapeta winner (at Newcastle) who has been running well since headgear was applied, especially when placed in her last three starts on turf; three of her last four outings on the AW have been in Listed company so she should find this a bit easier, but she still has plenty on against the 3yos.

Form & Verdict
Won 7f AW maiden last May; just fleeting visits to the track since and although she ran well enough from the front in 1m Sandown handicap in September (soft) she needs to step up back at this level after well held in Listed company on her return.

Mostly consistent in handicaps without winning one for previous yard; well held on debut for this one but she won quite takingly at Beverley (1m, good to soft) 14 days ago, albeit at a lesser level; up 4lb to career-high mark and this will test her new-found improvement.
