Form & Verdict
Promising debut at Ascot last July (7f, good) before disappointing on soft at Goodwood; dropped to 6f for his final 2yo run and produced a game effort to beat seven rivals (front two clear); gelded over the winter; has more to come this year but the form of his win hasn't really been advertised.

Form & Verdict
6f AW winner at two; made a most promising reappearance in a hot York handicap last month and confirmed herself an improved performer when skipping clear of seven rivals at Hamilton last week (6f, good to soft); looks well in under a penalty and remains capable of better; effective on good to firm as a 2yo.

Not beaten far in her first three runs and she didn't have to improve to land the odds in a 6f maiden at Newcastle in November; makes her handicap debut after 194 days off in a very competitive event and others are more appealing.

Finished well to score on nursery debut at Beverley (5f, good to firm) last August but not seen since finding valuable 6f sales race too hot in the autumn and will need to hit the ground running to have any chance here.

Gelded after shaping positively in his first three starts and showed the benefit with a swooping success on his handicap debut at Beverley (5f, good to firm); ran well on soft-ground debut and should stay 6f; could be a lively one.

His best effort to date came when second over C&D one year ago; not hit top gear this year, finishing behind a few of these over 5f here nine days ago; down in the weights and tried in cheekpieces but others look stronger.
