No show on her Kempton debut last November, but plenty of improvement when winning a Ripon novice (9.7f, soft) on her return in April; mixed messages from the form and has been off another three months since, but she remains open to further progress.

Form & Verdict

Consistent without really progressing as a 2yo (7f-1m; best efforts on slower than good); beaten favourite on his return to action at Catterick (7f, heavy) 17 days ago when it looked to present an insufficient stamina test; new trip and headgear today but he's not a guaranteed stayer.

Suited by soft ground on turf as he showed when easily winning an uncompetitive novice at Nottingham (1m, heavy) last August; hard to enthuse over following modest efforts on AW in his last three starts, though.

Form & Verdict

Promise amidst evident inexperience on his AW debut last October; better effort when third of 15 at Yarmouth two weeks ago (1m2f, soft) when he was sent off at a much bigger price than his reopposing stablemate Natzor; his proven ability on slow ground will be an asset; capable of better.

Form & Verdict

He made a promising start to his career when a close fifth at Newcastle last month (1m); beaten favourite but still improved his RPR when third of 12 at Nottingham (extended 1m, soft) 24 days ago, hanging left under pressure but keeping on when running into a dead end in the closing stages; should stay this longer trip and he is a major player for last year's winning stable.
