Scored at Catterick (5f, good to soft) on his final start last season; has been quiet in his three runs this term but he caught the eye with his late headway at Wolverhampton (fifth of 11) 11 days ago; now 1lb lower than for his win and he looks interesting on this switch back to turf.

Placed twice off today's mark since winning nursery debut at Musselburgh (5f, good) in July; others in this line-up may have more potential, but he seems very likely to make his presence felt again.

Last of six when upped to 7.3f for last month's nursery debut but fared much better when fourth in first-time visor (retained) at Chepstow (6f, good) 18 days ago, showing enough early speed to suggest this drop back to 5f might suit.

Disappointing in the main this season and well beaten at Southwell (5f, Tapeta) in August last time, when slowly away and reportedly losing her action; however, perhaps the first-time hood will be a positive and she has a good record over sprint trips here; not discounted.

Pipped a next-time-out winner to open account in 5f Musselburgh nursery last month (good to soft; front pair clear), her sixth start, and encountered some traffic when only fourth under penalty at Carlisle (5f, good to firm) a few days later; remains one to be interested in.
