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.

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.

Got off the mark at Ayr (6f) last September but she came in only ninth of 12 in 6f Haydock handicap 20 days ago; she's the sort to bounce back though.

Well suited by a stiff 6f; cheekpieces have helped in recent starts, winning at Carlisle in May before near misses over C&D (behind two of these rivals) and Ayr; another big run looks assured.

Off the mark for the season with a hard-fought success at Carlisle last month (6f, good to firm; cheekpieces first time); similar form when a close third at Hamilton ten days ago; C&D winner and she should remain competitive.

Form & Verdict
C&D scorer last spring for Kevin Ryan; lightly raced since but he got back on track for his current yard when fourth of 16 in 6f Doncaster handicap 20 days ago; he's one for the shortlist off an easing mark.

Winless since 2021 and he has yet to fire in two runs this term, only ninth at Windsor (6f) 32 days ago; others appeal more.
