0-9 and has gone badly the wrong way since showing some promise as a 2yo; returns from 282 days off having undergone wind surgery since last seen and the market may indicate what is expected; stable also runs Takeustothemoon.

Has benefited from the fitting of cheekpieces, finishing second of 13 in a 0-50 classified event at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) last month and winning a 0-55 handicap at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) last Saturday; 4lb wrong under her penalty and has stamina to prove, but it seems unlikely this will be run at a searching gallop and she looks the one to beat; stable also runs Rita's Wish.

0-7, but running well lately as when second of seven in a similar contest at Ayr (1m2f, good) last month (third has won since); she may need a stiffer test than this now, but still doesn't have many miles on the clock and a player on form; first-time cheekpieces are added to the tongue-tie.

Hasn't beaten many in his five starts so far, including in two turf handicaps (1m/1m2f) since returning last month (gelded in the meantime) despite being prominent in the market; must have been showing something so can't be totally dismissed now dropped in grade; first-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Picked up well to make it 16th-time lucky in an apprentice handicap at Chelmsford (1m, Polytrack) under Morgan Cole eight days ago; can take a grip so needs them to go a good pace up front, but solid claims for a follow-up if they do.
