Productive colt who has four wins on his CV, including Listed; ran well in handicap at the Craven meeting here (good) most recently, shaping as if he's well worth a return to 7f (raced mainly at 6f); big player.

J: Sean Levey

T: Richard Hannon

Acts on good to firm and good to soft; tough colt who scored in Listed grade here last May and ended his 2023 campaign with placed efforts at Group 1 level over 6f/7f in Britain/France; major contender with AW reappearance under his belt.

Ran creditably in 1m Listed contest on AW/seasonal debut while shaping as if this drop back in trip will suit; 3-4 over a bare 7f last term but may ideally need sharp tracks (wins came at Epsom/Goodwood).

Became a touch exposed over 7f-1m but is unexposed over middle distances and ran well upped to 1m2f on AW two outings ago; soft ground possibly contributed to his subsequent defeat over 1m4f; could go well if aided by first-time headgear.

Unexposed colt who scored on AW last November and was far from disgraced, contrary to his 125-1 odds, in the Greenham (7f, soft) on reappearance; well down this pack on bare ratings but may improve further.

Ran six times for the Meades, winning twice on AW but unplaced in four turf runs (best effort over 7f on good); still has potential and it will be interesting to see how he fares in the betting on his stable debut (sold for 92,000gns last October).

Kept on for good Listed fourth in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Sandown (1m, good) in July and a case can be made on that form, now back up in trip in her first handicap; however, she's been inconsistent this year and was well beaten in a Listed race at Haydock (1m, good to soft) last time.
