Form & Verdict
Seen more often as a useful hurdler but his latest run was an eyecatching display on the Flat, running on well for third of 12 in handicap at the Curragh (2m) in June after meeting lots of trouble in running; capable of better in this sphere and is very much one to note.

Form & Verdict
An improved performer on good ground and firmer this year, including with two 1m4f wins at Musselburgh; unraced beyond that on Flat, which leaves him with an uncomfortably large amount to prove this time, even though he's been going great guns.

Form & Verdict
His only win in recent years came on stable debut over 1m4f at York last September off 5lb higher; patchy record since and although he had a big shout from over 2f out to over 1f out in York 2m race on latest outing, five others proved stronger to the line; that was his first run for two months but left a bit to prove regarding stamina; same applies on softer than good.

Deservedly broke her losing run with a double in small fields at this track (11.6f and 1m6f) on last two starts; has more to prove beyond 1m6f (ran respectably in her one attempt at 2m) but resurgent and needs respect.

Back from 309 days away to win a 1m3f handicap at Carlisle (good to firm) last month and she followed up at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) 16 days later; lightly raced for her age and it looked as if she had more in the tank in those wins, so latest 3lb rise is not the chief worry; that's the trip as, despite stamina in the family, this is 5f further than she's been before.
