Form & Verdict
Both wins came over this trip on the AW late last year; hooded for his last three starts and produced his best form yet when runner-up in a traditionally warm 6f handicap here two weeks ago; came nicely clear of the remainder behind one who could be going places; every chance off 2lb higher.

Much improved on her last two outings, winning over 7f at Chelmsford and Salisbury (good to firm; made all); she's not short of speed so dropping back to 6f shouldn't hurt and this 8lb higher mark (from last time) could easily be manageable.

Not sure what happened when tailed off on her nursery debut but there were positives to take from her previous runs and she soon bounced back to beat 12 rivals off 6lb lower on her return to Chelmsford; only prevailed narrowly and that was a Class 5, so she'll need more again.

Three wins (5f/6f, AW/good to firm) last year from his first five starts, including two nurseries; not for the first time he wasn't that well away when only sixth here two weeks ago and he could never get involved; there's a possibility of improvement in the blinkers, especially on exiting the stalls.

The form of his debut win makes for really good reading and not only because the Group 2 Mill Reef winner was in second; was well on top at the finish in winning his latest nursery on the AW (6f; second-time tongue-tie) and could go well if handling conditions (least effective performance was on good to soft).

Three-time winner last season, including a Group 3 over this trip (on good to firm); free-goer who probably failed to stay 7f in the Nell Gwyn and when last at Chelmsford (6f Listed) she was eased right off after nearly coming down 2f out; makes handicap debut off a challenging mark.

Three runs in sprint novice/maiden company saw him placed (beaten around 2l on each occasion) in races won by horses who currently boast BHA ratings of 115, 110 and 104; attracted support in an Ascot nursery last July (6f, good to soft) but after travelling strongly he hung right and found little; he has been gelded since, should stay 7f and could yet prove this mark seriously underestimates him.

Found Listed company too much for him at Doncaster last October, but 2-2 on the AW either side including when beating three rivals in a Lingfield novice (6f, Polytrack) on his return this month; speedily bred on the dam's side so wouldn't be sure to appreciate the extra furlong on this handicap debut, but he retains potential.
