Decisive winner of 1m Redcar handicap on return in April and found just one too good at Ripon next time. Best to draw a line through her last run and she's high on the shortlist.

Gained breakthrough success at Lingfield (7f, AW) in April and went close in a Chelmsford handicap last week. However, sandwiched between those efforts were 2 low-key displays on turf. Visor applied.

Confirmed debut promise when landing a 7.5f Lingfield novice in September. Not disgraced in listed company on final 2-y-o start, but reappearance/handicap debut effort at Wolverhampton lacked spark.

Off the mark in 7f Kempton maiden on second of her 2 starts in November. Bath reappearance effort was fair, but made little impact on subsequent handicap debut at Newmarket.

Improved when winning twice on the AW earlier this year, but turf debut effort at Nottingham (10.2f, soft) was poor, for all that she was probably unsuited by conditions.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

There should be better to come from CELESTIAL QUEEN, who has shown immediate improvement switched to handicaps this year and a line can be drawn through her recent Leicester run (jockey sustained an injury leaving the stalls and subsequently pulled up). The drying ground will be in her favour and she gets the nod ahead of Hoodwinker, who also possesses potential. Fairy Cakes is best of the rest.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Hoodwinker, 7/1 Achelois (Ire), 4/1 Celestial Queen, 6/1 Fairy Cakes, 10/1 Sayifyouwill, 28/1 Little Rollright, 40/1 Sharla, 33/1 Swallowdale
