T: David Simcock

Lightly raced 4yo who has improved since being gelded, winning two four-runner 2m handicaps in a row this spring before a solid second here (2m) behind one who followed up; should return to winning ways sooner rather than later but the drop back in trip isn't an obvious plus.

Lightly raced 5yo; opened her account in C&D event in October (sole attempt at 1m6f); couple of creditable efforts over 2m since, latest at Lingfield on seasonal debut; now goes in cheekpieces; open to further progress at an ordinary level and warrants respect.

Has enjoyed a good winter, winning twice here (including this trip) before scoring by 5l at Kempton (2m) last month; took quite a keen hold when stepped up to 2m2f here last time and that third in a falsely run race perhaps shouldn't be taken to suggest the handicapper has got him; high on the shortlist.

Has shown promise in maiden/novice company over 1m4f; every chance when third on Thursday's handicap debut at Chelmsford (1m6f); more needed for the additional yardage but he does at least bring low mileage.
