The vote goes to VALE OF FLIGHT, whose recent performances on the AW have been sound, especially if viewed within the context of today's stiffer stamina test representing a likely plus for her. Lightly raced too, she can make a winning return to turf now, possibly at the main expense of Welease Bwian and One Big Surprise. [Mel Cullinan]

Has been running consistently well for the most part, in so doing standing up to a busy schedule; drop back to 5.2f is a slight unknown as her best form is at 6-7f but she ran well here both previous visits here and overall has solid each-way claims at the very least.

Latest close front-running third at Goodwood was best run for a while but patchy overall this season and no win for over two years; not far away on that latest run but there are enough doubts overall for others to be preferred for win purposes.

Often tardily away, as when losing many lengths at the start but running on well late on for close third here last time; wide draw is tricky here too but this dual course winner could well play a major role on that latest form, if able to break a bit more smartly minus the visor today.

Form has dipped a bit last two times but her summer form, including sound third over 6f here in August, would make her of strong interest; all three of her wins have been at 5f; worth considering in reapplied tongue-tie.

Lightly raced filly who was off the mark on AW at Chelmsford in September before fair latest Lingfield fourth, again on AW, when always rather on the back foot; stiffer stamina test here may well suit and is very much one to consider back on grass (down the field two previous attempts, on first two starts).

Won on AW in February but it's largely been a disappointing campaign on turf; however, latest Goodwood running was better and a repeat of that wouldn't see him far away.

Second win in 24 starts when making all and pipping Go Nani Go at Sandown last time; has held his form well for the most part this season, including some good runs over C&D, and every reason to expect another bold show now, up 2lb since last time.

Strike-rate isn't great but was running well enough in May/June when last seen out to be of definite interest here; evidently versatile as regards ground (has won soft and good to firm); another switch of headgear.

Only two wins in 38 starts came in 2012; some encouragement to be taken from last month's Sandown fourth on third start for this trainer but since been well held at Bath and others here have more pressing claims.

Patchy this season and was well beaten last time, so comes with clear risks attached; however, she is 4lb lower than when gaining a third win over C&D in May and, as such, cannot be ruled out.
