9st 8lb

J: Harry Davies

T: Hugo Palmer

0-12 since winning Musselburgh debut last April and he beat only one rival in C&D handicap latest; takes a big drop back in grade but he's hard to predict and others are more convincing; first-time visor replaces cheekpieces.

Beaten 11 times since his winning debut at Musselburgh last April; he's run to a fair level in all three AW runs this winter but more will be needed to take this; tongue-tie now joins the cheekpieces.

J: Jason Hart

T: Hugo Palmer

0-10 since his successful debut last April, though he has run creditably in defeat lately as when fourth of seven at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack; first start since being gelded) last month (third has won since); cheekpieces given a go and return to 5f shouldn't be an issue, but others are more persuasive.

40,000euros foal, 50,000euros yearling; fifth foal; half-brother to three winners including Coul Queen (7f including 2yo; RPR 95) and Stately Home (1m; 88); sire a speed influence; there's potential in his pedigree and his trainer can ready one first time; possible player.

Ultra-consistent gelding who won a five-runner Southwell novice (5f, Tapeta) in March and has been placed in all seven of his other starts, including when running a handicap blot close at Thirsk (5f, soft) 13 days ago; up 1lb but still one of the likelier winners.

Well-bred Expert Eye filly; justified favouritism in Nottingham novice (5f, soft) last May before a daunting task in York Listed race later that month; has not been seen since then but this is more realistic on her comeback and she needs watching in market upped in trip.

Just behind Classy Clarets (4lb worse off) when fourth in a Pontefract novice in May (5f, good); should be suited by 7f and by the AW (American pedigree); blinkers tried on nursery debut; a possible.

Both wins and best form have come on AW, registering a career-best effort when beating eight rivals at Newcastle ten weeks ago; found this C&D an inadequate test when fourth in a nursery last October; might need the pace to collapse to come out on top.
