Form & Verdict

Nibbled in the market ahead of last week's Musselburgh debut but she fluffed the start and was unable to land a blow; she did keep on quite nicely late on under a sympathetic ride though and she could take a marked step forward today; well drawn if breaking on terms.

Under pressure some way out but he stuck on well to take third at Thirsk on his debut two weeks ago (beaten 5l on soft ground); should be more clued up today and no surprise to see a big run.

Placed three times on Tapeta (5f-6f) during the AW season and recent down-the-field finish on turf return at Beverley is not viewed harshly, given it came after a break and he was poorly drawn; now 1lb lower than when scoring over C&D (good to soft) last summer; enters calculations.

Group 2 win at Royal Ascot as a 2yo but he's struggled badly in four starts this year, albeit last time at Doncaster wasn't disastrous given the ground wouldn't have suited; visored for his AW debut; revival wouldn't be a total shock.

Sent off 3-1 joint favourite on his Pontefract debut 12 days ago but he looked a tricky ride and having shown some early speed, he dropped right away in the straight; clearly thought capable of better and his stable have won the last two runnings of this race.

Only win came in a seller and she hasn't always looked the easiest; generally consistent but she's still to finish placed in a handicap (seven tries) and will need to better her latest effort, back to a visor from cheekpieces.
