Form & Verdict
2-4 for new stable this season, gaining both wins in small-field C&D races; well clear of the others when second of four behind progressive Godolphin 3yo at Epsom (1m2f, good to firm) three weeks ago; might still be improving.

Both starts at Brighton, close third upped to 7f last time; hard to rule out further progress but she is taking on several rivals who already have respectable course form.

Form & Verdict
Bounced back from a disappointing run (behind Wisper) when third at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) last week but has seemingly been in the grip of the handicapper since his two spring AW wins; others appeal more.

Runner-up twice since his win at Bath (1m, good to firm) in April, more recently behind Wisper over C&D (good to firm) in May; 11lb better off with that rival today and didn't run badly when sixth at Windsor last time.
