Verdict

The recent C&D win of LUCKY VIOLET has been boosted since and she might prove the safest proposition in a trappy event.

Without a win this season but dropping down the handicap and runs off the same mark now as her last win at Southwell in December. Nine wins on the turf prove she can handle the grass and dropped in class after a last of twelve at Chelmsford.
Ended 2017 on the up but quiet so far this year; no show either run back from 6 months off

A course winner over seven furlongs in August 2017 and a distance winner at Thirsk so no stamina issues. Fourth here last month over seven furlongs when looking one paced and may do better back at this trip.
4-timer last summer (including here); not quite so good this year but latest 4th not bad

Jockey Joe Fanning is in among the winners recently and his mount was in good form in July with a win at Bath followed by a second at Nottingham. Not in the same form in three races since and although down another pound now she has to do more today.
Capable from the front in small fields; career best needed but conditions no problem

Nine wins from fifty-eight career starts but just the one run this season when a thirty-three-length last of eleven at Ayr in a lesser race after over a year off. Sure to strip fitter now but has a bit to prove and may be best watched at present.
Tailed off on last month's reappearance; plenty to prove after that

Four wins so far, the latest at Thirsk in July, but yet to score over further than seven furlongs despite twenty-two attempts. Beaten five and a half lengths at Carlisle last time out and runs off the same rating now but she has won off higher.
Not hopelessly treated and has run well here in the past; not at best last time

Two wins from seven starts at Musselburgh the latest over course and distance at the end of August when scoring by a head off four pounds lower. Needs a career best off her new mark but has conditions in her favour and ought to challenge.
Won twice this year, including C&D last time; leading contender despite 4lb higher mark
