12-race maiden but he's gone close in several handicaps including at Lingfield (1m5f, Polytrack) on Saturday; this is a quick turnaround but he's respected on his Tapeta debut.

Generally very disappointing this season but arrested his decline when staying on well to take second behind bang-in-form rival at Chelmsford (1m6f) a fortnight ago and remains very well handicapped on older form.

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.

Noble Mission colt who has been beaten 12l or more at biggish prices in three middle-distance novice events this summer; in very good hands and this is more realistic on handicap debut but he needs to step up.

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.

14-race maiden; runner-up for the fifth time when pegged back late at Roscommon; previously third over a shorter trip at this venue; deserves to pick up a little race on the balance of form but could be vulnerable again.

First past the post in a Lingfield maiden in March and was runner-up in two handicaps there (1m2f/1m4f) in June but she has a mixed record in seven starts and was tailed off at Lingfield last time; visor is now added on this return to Tapeta and she needs to bounce back again.

Ex-Irish; fair fourth on stable debut at Haydock (1m2f, good to soft) in June but he struggled over 1m4f on Tapeta later that month when fitted with a hood for the first time; dropped 4lb but he's not progressed so far and has something to prove again after that last run.

Likeable front-runner with a consistent record; made all over C&D (heavy) just before Christmas and ran close to his best despite late mistakes when fourth in the well-contested Morebattle at Kelso four weeks ago; should be in the thick of things once more.
