12 runners declared for 1M 2F John Musker listed Stakes on ground described as soft .This looks competitive fillies & mares listed contest.The three main contenders look to be Beautiful Morning , High Hopes & Titi Makfi

BEAUTIFUL MORNING :4-Y-0 Bay filly,winning 1 out 9.Formerly trained by Luca Cumani, winning 7F maiden at York in 2015 .Has shown some decent form since switching to Jessica Harrington stable ,including finishing good 2ND in G2 Blandford stakes at Curragh  earlier this month .Will be suited returning to this lower grade .

HIGH HOPES : 4-Y-0 Bay Filly ,winning 3 out 9 .Shown progressive form this season,including winning class 3 handicap at Beverley off mark 89 in June ,though produced a career best effort last time ,when finishing good 1L second in 1M 2F listed race at Salisbury last time .Should be thereabouts , though the stable struggling for winners 0-31 in September . 

TITI MAKFI : 3-Y-0 Bay Filly,winning 5 out 9 .Been in great form this season, already winning five handicaps,including winning 1M class three handicap at Newmarket in August .Also finished good 2ND in competitive class two handicap at York last time ,off mark 97 .Races in listed company for first time ,though looks open to further improvement over this trip.

VERDICT :  Irish raider BEAUTIFUL MORNING sets decent standard ,after finishing fine second in group two Blandford Stakes on Irish Champions Weekend, 10 days ago .Will be suited returning to listed company .Odds around 4-1 look very fair value .

Titi Makfi looks the main danger, after showing progressive form this season ,already winning five handicaps ,looks open to further improvement over 1M 2F ,though odds around 9-4 look short enough for horse taking step up in class .
