Won at Lingfield (6f, AW) last June on second start, then absent until Newbury 11 days ago when runner-up in the Group 3 Greenham (7f, good to soft); kept on well last time but there's speed on the dam's side of his pedigree; unexposed and respected now back down in trip.

Some ability in four starts at Yarmouth last year and made a successful return from 210 days off at Chelmsford (6f, AW) last month; up 6lb and this looks tougher, but at least he comes into this in form.

Showed some ability in his qualifying starts and was 6l third on his sole nursery start at Yarmouth (6f, soft) last September; closely-related to a French AW winner and with the yard's runners in good form, he might be capable of some improvement.

Early-foaled 130,000gns yearling who's bred to be sharp, being a half-brother to two useful 2yos for William Haggas (Group 2 runner-up Ornate, Group 2 winner Saayerr); is an interesting newcomer.

155,000gns half-sister to four useful winners, including on 2yo debut here (To Wafij); trainer hasn't had a juvenile winner on turf in recent times and is just 5% with them here overall; still one to keep an eye on.

Runner-up in two of four starts, including nursery debut at Leicester last month (6f, good to firm) when she bumped into a good thing; non-runner on account of soft ground once though so Tuesday's rain won't have been welcomed.

Perhaps a shade disappointing when midfield in 6f Newmarket maiden last month but the form of his second over that C&D in June has been well advertised by the winner; makes nursery debut here; could have a say.
