Form & Verdict
Showed plenty of promise in two Lingfield maidens (1m, AW) during the winter and finished fourth in a local Group 2 at Doha (1m, good) the following month, but was disappointing when last of ten on handicap debut at Sandown (1m, good) in April; off 11 weeks since then having been gelded in the meantime and has enough to prove.

Form & Verdict
Showed ability in two of his three starts last year and after having been gelded he did it nicely when making a successful return/handicap debut at Newmarket (1m, good) three weeks ago; that form has already received a boost and although up 7lb, he looks to have more to offer; respected.

Form & Verdict
Won a novice at this track (7f, good) a year ago and landed a handicap on the straight course (1m, good) in May, but could only manage a midfield finish from this mark in the Britannia (1m, good to firm) last month; needs to resume his progress and perhaps fast ground isn't ideal for him.

Form & Verdict
Only made his debut in April and has been placed in all four starts over 1m2f, including when second of eight on handicap debut at Newmarket (good) three weeks ago; pulled hard there so this drop in trip and application of a hood could well be a good move, especially with promising apprentice taking off a valuable 5lb.

Form & Verdict
Proved consistent after his debut in January including a narrow success at Kempton (1m, AW) in May; ran well when second of 13 at Sandown (1m, good) eight days later, but the extra distance just seemed to stretch him when fifth of eight back there (1m1f, good to firm) last month; should be suited by the return to this trip and holds each-way claims.

Form & Verdict
Won a novice on the Newmarket July Course (7f, good to firm) last August and not disgraced when fourth of six on his return/handicap debut on the Rowley Mile (1m, good) in April; didn't appear to see out the trip when well held at Newbury (1m2f, good) the following month; has been dropped 4lb in the meantime, but others are still more convincing.

Creditable fourth of six at Newmarket (1m) two weeks ago on seasonal/handicap debut; unraced on softer than good; should come on from that run and he's brother to a fairly useful 1m2f/1m4f winner, so the move up in trip is of interest.

Form & Verdict
Improved in each of his first three starts, going down narrowly in both outings since returning in May including when beaten a neck at Windsor (1m, good to firm) last month, where he was carried right across the track by the winner; still open to progress now entering handicaps and one to take seriously.

Only raced on Polytrack so far, showing ability in his first three starts and benefiting from a positive ride when making a successful handicap debut at Kempton (1m) last time; 4lb higher, but the main question is how he will cope with the switch to turf in a better contest.
