Has progressed well since joining this stable, winning over 7f at Kempton and Southwell and running a cracker back on turf when a neck second at Windsor (6f, good to firm) three weeks ago; may not have reached his ceiling just yet and he's high on the list.

Sold for 110,000gns at breeze-up last April; finished down the field in three 2yo runs but he showed clear promise upped to 7f on handicap debut when third at Kempton last month; still looked inexperienced in that race and he's open to more progress here; dangerous with hood added.

Frequent slow starter but she made her breakthrough (tenth attempt) with a last-gasp win at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) last month and was only narrowly denied on the step back up to 6f at Lingfield (Polytrack) last time; 2lb higher on this belated turf debut but has possibilities if she can transfer her form to this sphere.

Form of C&D second in November has taken a few knocks and his last two efforts need plenty of improving on (caught wide both); new headgear and Luke Morris replacing 7lb claimer need to give him a lift.
