Sent off just 4-1 for his debut over C&D nine days ago, but despite meeting trouble at the start he showed ability in finishing third of the nine runners, a head behind Shaw Park; may be able to reverse the form with the experience under his belt.

Promising debut here (7f) in February and duly stepped forward to win a 7f maiden nine days later; had something to spare on that occasion but he will need further progress for today's longer trip (bred to stay) if he is to follow up.

Definite promise when beaten less than a length into third of nine on her Wolverhampton debut (7f, Tapeta) last August, but disappointing on her Southwell reappearance (1m, Tapeta) 13 days ago; would be a player on that first effort but has something to prove now.

Didn't make his debut until last month, but immediately displayed ability in going down by a nose at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta; 40-1) and followed that with a solid second of nine over C&D nine days ago; respected, but may struggle to confirm latest running with Fade To Gray.

Runner-up in both starts, firstly in a six-runner maiden at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta) last month and then in a five-runner novice over 1m here 20 days ago; not sure how strong the form is with both races slowly run, while she now has to prove herself over this shorter trip, but she can't be dismissed all the same.
