Form & Verdict
Showed plenty of promise with his runner-up efforts in two turf maidens (1m4f/11.6f, good) in June but he kicked off his handicap career with a remote third of six at Pontefract last month; gelded since and it's still early days but he needs improvement on this switch to AW.

Golden Horn filly who took a good step forward on her third start when a front-running second in novice here (9.4f) last month; pulled a long way clear of the third in that race and she's open to more progress upped to this trip on her handicap debut; interesting contender.

No impact in three novice events (7f-8.6f) during the winter and was never involved on his handicap debut at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to firm) in April; has been gelded and blinkers are now added but he needs a transformation upped to 1m4f after another break.

Form & Verdict
Five-race maiden with a mixed record but she travelled smoothly for a long way when a clear second in 1m4f Ffos Las maiden (soft) last month; that was her first try at this trip and this well-bred filly could be a big factor if she can build on that on her handicap/AW debut.
