Smart 2yo when trained by Richard Hannon but drew a blank last year; made pleasing seasonal/stable debut when keeping-on third to Lights On at Nottingham (8.3f, good to firm) in April and her subsequent 25l defeat behind that rival was on soft ground, but others in this field have greater potential.

Placed at about 1m2f on last three of her four 3yo starts and coped fine with drop back to 1m when winning on reappearance at Yarmouth (good) last month; has quite a bit more on her plate here and ideally needs to learn to settle better.

Raced over 7f on all three starts this year, best effort when staying on for close second at Wolverhampton (AW) on second occasion; only fourth of six at Doncaster (good to firm) last time and today's step up in trip needs to unlock improvement.

Placed on seasonal/stable debut in April and bettered that performance when scoring under James Doyle at Kempton (7f, AW) last month; shapes as though well worth a crack at 1m but is more exposed than several of today's rivals and this is a tough race in which to test her stamina.

Ended her 3yo season with a 1m2f Polytrack win last October and followed up when making all in Class 4 handicap at Leicester (1m, good) last month; evidently a filly on the up, but this race will be harder to dominate.

0-5 and generally disappointing as a 3yo for Richard Hughes but started off for Joseph O'Brien with two Sligo handicap wins over an extended 1m2f last month (both on slower than good), the latter gained by 5l in very good style; not sure to be suited by the reduced emphasis on stamina here but still looks interesting.

Second in the Sandringham at this meeting last year (straight 1m, soft) and easily won five-runner Lingfield handicap (1m2f, good) off 7lb lower last September; had to settle for fifth when favourite for Yarmouth Listed race (1m2f, good to firm; hung left-handed) later that month and we haven't seen her since but she's not yet fully exposed.

Has stamina in her pedigree but displayed good turn of foot to settle 1m AW handicap on seasonal debut at Kempton in March; flopped when warm favourite for 1m2f Nottingham Listed race last time but reportedly lost her action and was unsuited by the undulating track; remains very much of interest.

Seemingly aided by first-time tongue-tie when placed in Newmarket Listed race (1m, good) last September but hasn't matched that performance since and wasn't making any late inroads when well-held fourth in Epsom Group 3 (8.5f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) this month; tongue-tie (missing last time) back on today; others look better handicapped.

Won her only 2yo start but was highly tried as a 3yo in Ireland and her season never really got going; might have needed the run when sixth of eight for new stable in 1m2f Nottingham Listed race in April (first start after a wind op) but others have much less to prove; tongue-tie added today.

Ended last season with win over straight 1m here (good) in September and built upon very promising reappearance run when very close second to Lights On over that same C&D (soft) last month; 1lb better off with her old rival today and should cope if the ground ends up faster than good.

2-4 in handicaps after digging deep to make virtually all in amateur riders' contest on last month's seasonal debut at York (7f, soft); today's trip and ground combination should also suit and she may yet have more to offer but others have more compelling form.

Not fully exposed after only six runs and she was second in handicaps on her first two appearances this year (1m, AW; 7f, good to firm); raced too freely and finished well down the field when upped to Listed grade last month (1m2f, good to firm); needs to take her form to a new level.

Impressed when 2-2 in 1m novice races last summer; struggled on both starts (Group 2/handicap) in UAE at start of this year but got career back on track with narrow win in recent Doncaster handicap (1m, good to firm) and should still have potential; respected.

Improved performer this spring, winning comfortably at Nottingham (8.3f, good to firm) before hanging on well to prevail by a short head from Dreamloper over the straight 1m here (soft; front pair clear of a next-time-out winner); usually ridden patiently; high on the list.

Made excellent progress on AW in early part of this year, climaxing with 7f win on AW Championships day at Lingfield in April, but has found things tougher in Listed/Group races returned to turf for last three starts and doesn't look particularly well treated in this handicap; first-time cheekpieces.

Began career with two 7f AW wins towards end of last year and, following a break, finished second in two heavy-ground handicaps over that trip last month; moves up to 1m today and needs to improve but is completely unexposed on anything like good turf ground.

RACING POST TIP

circle_v2
silk
Mostly
She didn't give her running last time but MOSTLY appeared to have a bit left in the tank when quickening to win a 1m AW handicap on her seasonal debut in March and, given the stamina in her pedigree, there is hope that today's stiffer test at this trip can unlock significant further improvement. She gets the verdict ahead of Stunning Beauty, who bounced back to form with a win this month and is still lightly raced. Lights On and Dreamloper are others to consider, having fought out a tight finish on the straight 1m here last month.
