Form & Verdict

In the frame all four starts, most notably when second of 13 at Windsor (5f, good to firm) two runs ago; didn't see out 6f after again racing too freely at Newbury (good) two weeks ago but still ran pretty well there, and today's race is much easier.

Form & Verdict

First foal from a fair 2yo sprint winner; looked sure to win three-runner Bath maiden (5.7f, firm) when moving clear over 1f on recent debut, only to succumb to an experienced rival in the closing stages; it's tricky to gauge what that form is worth but he evidently has ability.

Good run when a close third over C&D in November (first-time hood) and he wasn't well drawn at Lingfield last time; hood left off now and others appeal more for win purposes.

T: Eve Johnson Houghton

Placed in three of his six starts, showing improved form when third of ten in a 6f nursery at Kempton five weeks ago (first-time hood, retained); that form has taken some knocks since though and more will be needed back at 7f if he is to break his duck.

Form & Verdict

Raced prominently for a fair way and certainly wasn't disgraced when fifth of six at Epsom (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago, his second run, but will need to improve to pose a significant threat here; drops back in trip with cheekpieces fitted for first time.

Out of a very useful 1m1f winner; seemingly too green to do himself justice when well beaten at Lingfield (7f, AW) five weeks ago; probably best watched here.

Tenth foal; half-sister to five winners including very useful sprinters Maygold, Spanish Bounty and King Ferdinand; dam 8.4f AW winner (RPR 81); interesting pedigree, but stable has very modest 2yo strike-rate nowadays.

Six-race maiden; went very close off a lowly mark at Windsor (5f, soft) on handicap debut; not in the same form back on fast ground since, though met some trouble last time; underfoot conditions aside, has something to find on ratings.
