Her last six wins have come over C&D (soft-good), the most recent by a short head 12 days ago; the clear runner-up has since gone one better and this mare is a major player up just 3lb.

Took this contest in 2022 and she teed herself up well for a repeat when a never-nearer fifth of nine in 7f Ayr handicap 18 days ago; this multiple C&D scorer merits serious consideration.

Down the field on first two runs this season before winning at Hamilton last month; however, she excels there and she's since been well beaten at Carlisle; something to prove on first visit here.

All three turf wins at Hamilton and just 1lb higher than when scoring by a head there (5f, good to soft) this month; could be ideally berthed if the field come stands' side, but something to prove if the ground is soft/heavy.

Two 5f wins at Musselburgh this season and she ran well there last week; couldn't land a telling blow in the Bronze Cup on Friday but still looked in form; chance in these calmer waters.

Form & Verdict
Major improver since handicapping, doing well on good or faster last season and proving even more adept on soft ground this year; latest Thirsk success (6f, soft) was her third win from four runs this year, one of them a defeat of Slainte Mhath, who she's now 7lb better off with, at Thirsk; major player.

Found an ordinary turf maiden and Tapeta novice for her two wins last summer and had her limitations exposed in handicap company latterly (2lb higher) having been very easy to back; needs to have improved for the winter break.

5-15 on turf, with three of the wins coming over C&D; well suited by slow ground; not much room for manoeuvre off this mark and she wasn't at her best with conditions to suit six weeks ago.

Slainte Mhath

J: Cieren Fallon

Admirably consistent mare who has made the frame off today's mark over 6f on all six starts this season, on ground ranging from good to heavy; double-digit draw dents her appeal on this first visit to Chester, though.

Won twice over C&D (good to soft) last year and has been admirably consistent in defeat this season, finishing third of 21 at York (6f, good to soft) on Saturday; strong claims if this doesn't come too soon.

Prominent racer with five handicap wins to her name, all on good to soft or slower; solid second at Ayr 11 days ago (winner has gone in again since) and she's likely to be in the thick of the action.
