The RPRs posted by Watheeqa this term have been consistent rather than progressive, for all that July's C&D novice stakes success was by a wide margin. She may well find more improvement for handicaps, but whilst more exposed than the Varian filly both Macaque and in particular ORANGE SUIT are increasingly tempting off retreating marks. Assuming the probable pace contest doesn't turn destructive, the last-named may be able to make count this drop back to 1m. [Jeremy Grayson]

Wide-margin scorer in a five-runner C&D novice event in July, and although barely improving on her previous best RPR won with plenty in hand and bounced off the firm ground; not the only pace influence here and needs to find more for handicaps, but certainly the least exposed contender.

Solid place finishes around sharp 1m2f turf circuits this summer without quite taking his form to a brand new level in the now-discarded hood; never been able to race off this low in a handicap before, and likely something to offer back at 1m barring any destructive pace battle.

Essentially got back on track at Doncaster last time on the second of two quickfire runs over 1m2f, beaten under 3l; drop back to 1m seems well worth a go if pacesetting tactics are on the agenda again here, and looking ever better treated following another 3lb drop; may be the answer.

Has found improvement since the hood went on, recording another personal best RPR (84) at Redcar latest (7f, good to firm); respected accordingly, though 5lb rise for that half-length defeat leaves him weighted almost to the hilt, and this step up to 1m hadn't looked obviously needed.

Nottingham scorer who fares best granted a galloping 1m and when produced late, though did look as if he let a chance go begging at Sandown two runs ago; not on his best behaviour on last time's Polytrack debut, and certain others here appear better handicapped as well as more trustworthy.

Tactically versatile, and July's Newmarket score (7f, soft) added success on a galloping track to previous gains exclusively around the very different Brighton; 0-6 over 1m-plus but does stay this far, and a sort of mark which has looked just beyond him the past twice may be more the issue.
