J: Hector Crouch

Creditable third at Epsom (1m2f, good to firm) on handicap debut, before making all at Chester (1m2f, good to soft) and asserting final 1f at Glorious Goodwood (1m3f, good to soft); 1m4f looks manageable and 7lb rise may be too, given he was comfortably on top for both wins; steadily progressive.

J: Hector Crouch

T: Ralph Beckett

Plenty of promise in his qualifying runs (beaten a neck on 1m Salisbury reappearance) and made a good start to his handicap career when third over 1m2f at Epsom (good to firm) on Derby day; the winner was a good fourth in the King Edward last week and the second won well at Pontefract on Sunday so the form looks strong.

8st 7lb

J: Andrea Atzeni

T: Ralph Beckett

Showed promise and plenty of ability when taking minor honours at Nottingham (1m, soft) and Kempton (7f, AW) last autumn; late foal with a useful pedigree and he was beaten a neck in novice at Salisbury (7f, good to soft) on reappearance, making most and sticking to his task well despite persistently hanging left; open to further improvement, particularly as he's stepped up in trip like his stablemate Promoter.
