Won at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) to get off the mark at the sixth attempt, and his second start since being gelded; it was a tight finish but he's gone up just 1lb and this 3yo may have more to offer.

Well below her best the last twice, but her July run was too bad to be true and 1m4f/Polytrack excuses her latest performance; running really well under Nicola Currie over 1m2f on good-soft earlier in the season and she's a contender today if recapturing that form; trainer is among the winners.
