Well treated on his old form and was a fair fourth at Chepstow (1m2f, good) last time but that took his record to 1-23 and his sole win was almost two years ago; others preferred.

Form & Verdict
Has finished down the field in all five runs, most recently when sixth of ten in a Newbury handicap (7f, good) last month; mark is sliding and he has stamina on his dam's side but he needs improvement on this step up to 1m2f.

Form & Verdict
Six-race maiden but he was placed in his first two handicaps (at around 1m) last autumn and got hampered early on when below form at Nottingham (joint-favourite) in final 2yo run; gelded and has had wind surgery since; steps up in trip after 250 days off but his smart dam won at up to 1m4f and he was generally progressive before that last run; one to keep an eye on.

Form & Verdict
21-race maiden; made a solid start for his current yard when third in a classified event at Nottingham (1m2f, good to firm) last month but he failed to back that up when a well-held fourth at Chepstow (1m4f); drops back in trip but he has a patchy record and others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict
Off the mark at the fourth attempt with front-running win in a Musselburgh maiden (1m, good) 12 days ago; showed a good attitude in that race and she has shaped as though this step up to 1m2f could suit; still has untapped potential and she's big player again on handicap debut.

Big prices and was beaten 17l or more in three novice/maiden events at up to 1m4f last month; still early days but he needs a major transformation back up in trip on his handicap debut.
