Has improved since switched to handicaps on the AW, making it sixth-time lucky at Wolverhampton (8.6f) three weeks ago; 4lb higher and needs to prove he can do it back on turf, but comes into this in good heart so has to make the shortlist.

J: Pat Cosgrave

Having been gelded he improved to win in first-time cheekpieces (retained) on yesterday's handicap debut at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW; first run beyond 7f); unexposed and has to be respected if turned out swiftly under a penalty.

Five-race maiden last term; however, she's bred to do better and may benefit from this step up to 1m2f; not dismissed.

Consistent over 1m2f this term until form dipped last time (weakened late on); still a maiden but she's a Stoute-trained filly who has a useful pedigree and may yet come good; first win looks possible, provided the return to 1m suits her.

Half-sister to the yard's dual Group 3 winner Zaaki and a few ordinary winners; has had plenty of chances now, including in first-time headgear latest (switches to blinkers today), and she'll need to settle better on to softer ground.

Seven-race maiden who has shown she can be competitive from her mark when third in 1m2f handicaps at Chelmsford (Polytrack) and Lingfield (good to firm) this year; a couple who finished behind her at Lingfield have won since so that form doesn't look too bad; visored first time; considered under Oisin Murphy.
