On the up last autumn, winning over 1m3f at Carlisle (good to firm) and 1m6f at Catterick (soft) before her good second when trying 2m at York; respectable fourth of 20 back here over 1m4f on latest outing, so has a place chance even if a bit further may now be ideal.

On the up last autumn, winning over 1m3f at Carlisle (good to firm) and 1m6f at Catterick (soft) before her good second when trying 2m at York; no show on reappearance but that run may well have done her some good and she still has a competitive mark.

Course scorer who comes here on the back of a solid third in 1m6f Nottingham handicap (good to firm) ten days ago; she can race off an unchanged mark here so merits serious consideration.

Three wins last season, the third over 1m6f at Chester (heavy; won by 15l) in September; faded in the closing stages at that track over 2m2f (ran respectably) and 2m (favourite) this term; 2lb higher than last winning mark and the return to 1m6f seems to offer possibilities.

Stayed well on the Flat when with Ed Bethell, though plied his trade at an ordinary level; ended up tailed off on hurdling debut at Fakenham and he looks up against it.

Fair Flat handicapper for Ed Bethell, winning over 1m6f at Catterick in August when blinkered for the first time; no headgear and may eventually need further but an interesting newcomer.

Off the mark at the 14th attempt when forging clear at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) one month ago; creditable second of four over 1m6f at Wolverhampton 13 days later; chance on some 2023 turf form too, though last three times he encountered soft or heavy weren't at that level.
