Wasn't fully extended to gain first win on fourth start in maiden company at Hamilton in August (9f). Extra furlong shouldn't be a problem, and she may well progress again this term.

Best effort in maidens when 1.5 lengths second at Kempton (12f) in August. Well held back at that venue later that month but not one to be writing off in handicaps now.

Better efforts in AW maidens late last year, making it fourth time lucky at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in November, granted the run of the race. Will find this tougher on return.

Improved model this spring, following up his Wolverhampton success at Southwell (11f) 17 days ago, showing a good attitude in a tight finish. Clear player in hat-trick bid from 5 lb higher.

Verdict

Apres Midi signed off last year by winning a Hamilton maiden and is worth a market check now making her handicap debut on her return. Princess Nia and Tuolumne Meadows cannot be ruled out on their handicap debuts either, but with the potential benefit of having a recent run under her belt, the vote goes to Mark Johnston's hat-trick-seeker STAR OF LOMBARDY, who kept on determinedly to score over 1m3f at Southwell latest.

Verdict

STAR OF LOMBARDY arrives in great heart, showing a willing attitude to score again at Southwell earlier this month, and she gets the nod to complete the hat-trick back on turf. Apres Midi, who made it fourth time lucky at Hamilton last summer, may well emerge as the chief threat now handicapping on return.
