Wide-margin winner of a 1m1f fillies' handicap at Sandown last May; not in the same form when last seen in September and back from a break perhaps not the time to catch her.

Finished well from a long way off the pace to open account on seasonal debut at Newcastle (1m2f, AW) in May; not seen since but can evidently go well when fresh, and is not yet fully exposed after only seven runs.

5yo who didn't make his debut until June and has been unable to land a telling blow in three novice/maiden races (7f/1m); makes handicap debut in a low-grade event, though, and is open to improvement if suited by the step up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up on last three appearances, most recently when losing out only by a short head to unexposed rival on stable debut at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) 11 days ago; has to take a 3lb rise on the chin but today's return to turf won't be a problem.

Form & Verdict

Came good at eighth attempt, with AW win over today's trip at Newcastle in May; further progress is certainly not out of the question but he was soundly beaten after racing too freely over 1m4f in June and needs to put that run behind him.
