Form & Verdict

Showed promise for the Johnstons and wasn't beaten far in a 6f nursery at Newcastle on stable debut three weeks ago; that form looks solid and could have more to come but fitting of cheekpieces sounds a note of caution.

J: Jack Garritty

T: Jedd O’Keeffe

Failed to win in seven starts for the Johnstons but he ran some good races, notably a close third at Nottingham in September; struggled over C&D 11 weeks ago, after which he was sold for 32,000gns and gelded; down in class and not a forlorn hope.

Form & Verdict

Similar form in all four starts, failing to make significant progress on her handicap debut here 11 days ago when 3l behind the reopposing Greavsie; headgear worn there is now replaced by blinkers; drawn widest but still not fully exposed.

Yet to win (0-11), but runner-up on three occasions, including in blinkers at Chepstow (7f) in July; she has had various issues, either in or breaking from the stalls (stumbled badly at Ffos Las) since; reverting to cheekpieces coupled with a first visit to Newcastle could spark a revival.

0-9 but she's finished runner-up in three handicaps including under a positive ride at Chepstow (7f, good to soft) last time; was no match for the winner in that race but she pulled clear of the third and is 1lb lower here; respected.

She has improved for the step up to 7f, getting off the mark in determined fashion at Lingfield last month; 3lb rise demands more of her.

Form & Verdict

Made all to win a 1m nursery at Ffos Las in September; progress then stalled until blinkers were tried here 11 days ago when he overcame a slow start to easily win a C&D handicap; made up significant ground very quickly in the straight there and hard to believe he doesn't have the raw ability to defy this 5lb higher mark; on the downside, he didn't look straightforward despite the comfortable manner of that win.

She hasn't progressed for her new yard as yet but she tried to come from a hopeless position over 6f here last week and again left the impression there was more to come (ran the final 3f quicker than anything else in the field); stamina for 7f not copper-bottomed but it looks worth exploring.
