300,000euros yearling; fifth foal; brother to US winners Henley's Joy (1m-1m2f turf including Grade 1) and El Joy (1m AW); in top hands and could play a leading role on debut, for which he wears a tongue-tie.

Well held on turf in April but this lightly raced 3yo from a top yard has a progressive profile on AW, leading near the finish on his C&D handicap debut 31 days ago, with the reopposing Franberri back in fourth; a 2lb nudge seems unlikely to prevent another prominent showing.

Made a winning debut at Wolverhampton last October and he got back on track after seven months off when second of four in 9.5f novice there 13 days ago; he may do better back up in trip for his handicap debut so needs considering.

Well beaten on sole run this season, in a hot novice at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in April; however, he won here (8.6f) last October on his only 2yo start and retains potential for his top yard now back from a break.

Showed plenty of promise when placed in both starts over 7f last summer, but hasn't built on it as when fifth of eight in first-time cheekpieces on handicap debut at Chester (1m2f, good) last time; plenty of stamina on the dam's side, but he needs to step up.

£125,000 yearling; had three runs last season and he didn't really fire at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in October but he sets a good standard on his close second at Salisbury (7f) last summer; looks a big player if he can recapture that form after another break and he's bred to stay this new trip.

Her debut sixth over C&D last month (16-1) wasn't without promise but she was well beaten at Newcastle (1m, also Tapeta) subsequently and others make greater appeal.

Often front-runner; excellent form figures after headgear went on last June, including two seconds and a win (a runaway win on heavy) when she visited this track, but they were somewhat dented when she attempted 2m on last two outings; needs to be back at her peak straightaway on this return.

Often front-runner; excellent form figures since headgear went on in June, but they were somewhat dented nine days ago by his Kempton AW sixth of seven when attempting 2m for the first time; scored by wide margin on heavy at Chester (1m6f) three starts back, so not totally dismissed.

3yo who made it 3-5 in handicaps when making all at Beverley (2m, good to firm) last Thursday; 2lb well in under a penalty for that clearcut win and he's a major player again, particularly if the ground dries out; his wins have come on good/good to firm and he's struggled in two runs on soft.
