Form & Verdict
Well-connected filly; conservative placing has paid off in Haydock handicaps with emphatic wins over 7f (good to soft) and 1m (heavy), looking better the further she went each time; up further 5lb for latest win but a bigger worry is how she will cope with the first run on good to firm; has plenty going for her if the going suits.

J: Neil Callan

Won at Ayr (7f, good) last August on her second start and remains lightly raced, but she was soundly beaten in a Group 2 over C&D (good) in September when last seen, and others have much stronger claims.

Form & Verdict
Has made the running for two of her three 7f wins, the latest at Ayr in May (good; off 5lb lower); has since run well in 1m Listed event but her effort was short-lived back in a handicap at Goodwood 23 days ago (1m, good to soft); no easier task today.

Made all in handicap at Ayr (7f, good) in May on reappearance but soundly beaten fifth in Listed race at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm); unproven at 1m and best form is on good/faster; limitations may be exposed once more.

Form & Verdict
Effective with different tactics and has come into her own since upped from 6f, beating five rivals in good style at Haydock (7f, heavy) then caught in a queue before doing good late work into fourth of 18 at Goodwood recently (1m, good to soft); up 3lb but still has scope as a handicapper if equally effective on good to firm ground; Ryan Moore booked.

Three runs on soft or heavy ground and she's recorded two wins and a third (one of them here); failed to fire on fast ground at York's Ebor meeting but this surface should be much more to her liking; still not fully exposed and needs consideration.

These conditions suited when going close in a seven-runner Newbury handicap (7f, good to firm) on reappearance but limited progress in two runs over 1m since, on turf (at Royal Ascot) and the AW; needs extra to keep pace with some of these progressive types.
