Form & Verdict

Promise on turf last year, including C&D, and couldn't begrudge him his breakthrough win at Southwell in December; raced with the choke out at Newcastle in January and didn't get home; doesn't look thrown in but he is likely to give his running.

Shaped well on his Southwell debut in January; less good on his next two starts but his handicap debut at Newcastle four weeks ago wasn't bad at all (first run over 5f); could fare better switched to turf; interesting.

C&D winner at two; encouraging reappearance at Thirsk two weeks ago, under pressure some way out but keeping on steadily in a Class 3 event; more needed to defy this mark but she has the rail draw and should give a good account.

She made a promising reappearance when second at Newcastle last month (6f); shade disappointing over 5f at Doncaster last time but potentially well drawn and returning to Class 6 company can help.

Two 5f wins as a 2yo (good to firm and soft); well beaten on her only nursery start and she is only 1lb lower ahead of her reappearance; could prove vulnerable to less-exposed rivals.

All four 2yo runs offered promise, finishing second in a York novice and a Haydock maiden in September; had wind surgery over the winter; dropped away tamely on soft ground (6f) on his reappearance at Pontefract and a tongue-tie is now fitted; too soon to write him off.

Form & Verdict

Promising effort at Beverley in August (5f, good) and he didn't have to improve to win at 6f nursery nine days later (AW); handicapper took severe action but he was a creditable fourth at Beverley on his next start; too free at Ayr when last seen in September; needs to have improved over the winter.
