Better than ever when resuming winning ways at Beverley in July, and ran at least as well in defeat back on the all-weather at Lingfield last time. Should remain competitive.

Just modest form at best in a trio of novices but looks to have been brought along with handicaps in mind, so rates a likely improver.

Fair maiden who was a creditable fourth of 13 at Kempton (12f) in December. Below form back there in January and again ran poorly at Sandown on return in May. Has since had a wind operation.

Lightly-raced winner on the all-weather but ran poorly having a first start on turf at Windsor in May. Bit to prove.

Hasn't really threatened all 3 starts to date, racing freely when well held at Haydock last time. Big improvement needed on this switch to handicap company.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

The vote goes to DREAMBIRD, who looks to have been brought along with handicaps in mind and therefore rates a likely improver now. In-form pair Livia The Empress and Dreams Unwind are feared most.

Betting Forecast

11/4 Dreams Unwind, 3/1 Livia The Empress (Ire), 11/2 Dreambird (Ire), 16/1 Thanielle (Fr), 16/1 Swallowdale, 10/1 Nellie Moon, 20/1 Novel Idea (Ire)
