Form & Verdict

Six-race maiden but was a good second in a Kempton handicap (6f, Polytrack) in October and she ran well for a long way when upped to 7f there (beaten less than 2l) the following month; still has potential and she's respected back in trip on her return.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up at Lingfield (5f/6f, Polytrack) in his frst two handicaps but he didn't really fire at Newcastle on penultimate run and his form slumped at Southwell (5f) last time; missed the break in that race but he's now 0-7 and needs to bounce back near his best; hood added.

Now 5lb lower than for his Newcastle second last October (6f), his final run for David O'Meara; not at his best in a Class 5 over C&D last time but he has the ability to go well at this level; strong pace would aid his claims.

Form & Verdict

Shaped with some promise at Newcastle on her debut in September but she struggled in his next two runs and it was a similar story on her handicap debut at Newcastle (6f) last month; still early days but has quite a lot to prove and she needs blinkers to make a big difference.

Five-race maiden who has not progressed so far; ran respectably at a big price in a Chelmsford handicap (6f; blinkers added) three weeks ago but this is a deeper race and not sure this step up in trip will suit on pedigree; others look stronger.

Offered promise when sixth of 11 on her C&D debut in September and possible two poor runs on turf later in the autumn were due to her failing to handle heavy ground; one to keep a close eye on in the betting now returning to AW for her handicap debut after a short break.

Form & Verdict

Had mixed record in his five 2yo runs but after wind surgery he returned with a promising third in a Newcastle handicap (6f, Tapeta; well backed) last month; travelled smoothly before running into some trouble in that race and he's an interesting contender off an unchanged mark.

Sold out of Ger Lyons' yard for 20,000gns shortly after a modest debut at Navan in October; well beaten in two runs for his new yard but stepping up to 7f will suit, as will the move into low-grade handicaps; too soon to write him off.

Form & Verdict

Finished out the back in his three juvenile runs but he was gelded in November and showed some promise when switched to a handicap at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) last month; rallied to finish fourth of eight in that race and has possibilities if he can build on that back up in trip.
