Form & Verdict
All seven runs have been on AW, including a Newcastle win (6f) in November and a second over 7f there (cheekpieces added) last month; now switches to turf after a gelding operation but he's a brother to a 6f fast-ground winner in this sphere and is respected back at this trip.

Form & Verdict
Runner-up in small-field Pontefract maiden (6f, good to firm) in the second of his two 2yo runs but was disappointing in a Southwell novice in January; now returns to turf for his handicap debut but has bit to prove after another break and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict
Won on nursery debut at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) in October and he found more progress with his near miss there in final 2yo run (been gelded since); 2lb higher after 193 days off but he should have more to offer this season and is out of a six-time winner on turf; in the mix.

Form & Verdict
Had three runs in novice events in the autumn and he found plenty of improvement when scoring over 6f at Newcastle on his last outing; switches back to turf after 166 days off but he looks on a fair opening mark and has plenty of scope for further progress; interesting contender on handicap debut.

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 & Verdict
Has record of 1-12 but his win came at Newcastle (6f) in February and he was a good second behind an improver who made all there 26 days ago; conditions should be fine on this switch back to turf and he's a key player off only 1lb higher than last time.

Form & Verdict
Clearcut winner of a 7f novice at Brighton (good to soft) last July; didn't match that form in final four runs last season but he was a fair fourth of 16 at Newmarket in his last run for David Elsworth in October; returns to sprinting after 185 days off but he's on a reduced mark and needs checking in market for new yard.

Form & Verdict
Seven-race maiden with a mixed record but he's well handicapped on best 2yo form and made some good late headway when fourth of 13 at Bath (5.7f; first run after wind surgery) on return last week; steps back up in grade but he's been dropped another 2lb and is hard to rule out back up in trip.
