Only win in eight starts came on her debut as a 2yo but she has faced some tough tasks along the way, including when upped to 1m and running respectably in AW Listed race on final start last season; others have more solid form claims and stamina for 1m still to be proven.

Hacked up in this race off 9lb lower mark from similar draw on 2016 reappearance (soft) and back to winning ways on the July Course last summer (7f, good to soft); below par off this mark the next twice but couldn't rule out, especially if rail draw an advantage.

Has won over this trip but most racing in sprints; back in form this spring following a wind operation after just two starts last year, but this will stretch him in the conditions unless it becomes tactical.

Same mark as for last success at Yarmouth last May; didn't go on from that and it was a similar story after reappearance win in 2016 so doubt about his holding his form but last month's down-the-run stable/seasonal debut run at Newmarket easy to excuse (met trouble in running); not discounted.

In fine form this spring, winning at Doncaster in March and then following up with career-best success at Catterick last time; ground is fine and though 7lb higher in a better race than last time, hard to rule out.

Both wins left-handed, the latest at Epsom in June (7f, good), but has plenty of straight-track form and only once outside the first four since handicapping; capable of running well after a break and frame prospects.

Missed 2017; back in January and has registered four seconds and two wins this year, last Saturday finishing strongly from off the pace to lead final strides in 27-runner Victoria Cup at Ascot (7f, good to firm); this will probably be run at a different tempo but he's up just 3lb and kept on well on sole attempt at 1m, so very much one for the shortlist.

Sole win from eight 2yo starts came when handed golden opportunity in Leicester novice when last seen in October; however, she'd previously been a solid second in three of her four handicaps and she's respected as the apparent first-string for good trainer who won this in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

Won 7f novice (good to firm) and second in 1m Listed race (good) for Richard Hannon last year; has lost his way but drop to 5f was no use latest so this step back up in trip is in his favour.

Made debut in November and sole win at 5f on AW; however, he made light of the switch to turf over C&D recently, caught on the hop from off the pace and then hampered but finished strongly to snatch second (good; first-time blinkers, retained); the likely strong pace looks sure to suit.
