Unbeaten from her two starts so far this season; both successes coming in five-furlong handicaps at Nottingham. Raised seven pounds for the more recent of those victories, however, and this is by far her toughest assignment to date.
2-2 this year, both at Nottingham, with about 2l to spare each time; respected

Gained two wins from his five starts as a juvenile, but he made a very modest start to his three-year-old career when tenth at Sandown last month. Dropped three pounds, and he should strip fitter today, but others look more reliable options.
Dual 5f 2yo winner who ran well for a fair way on return; has potential off this mark

Justified favouritism to land a novice race at Newcastle last June, but he has failed to add to that success from his eight starts since. Gelded prior to finishing down the field on his reappearance at Newmarket last month. Others are preferred today.
No return to form on reappearance but well worth noting his best 2yo performance came here
