Form & Verdict

A short head behind Miss Brazen when seventh at York last time, having made a winning reappearance at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) earlier in May; those efforts were an improvement on his 2yo form and he's bred to do even better in due course; one of two strong contenders trained by Michael Dods.

Won twice for Karl Burke in 2022 and showed herself better than ever for new yard when sauntering to the front and hammering seven rivals at Beverley (5f) in May; not disgraced off revised mark in a big field at York two weeks ago; needs a bit more again here but a likely strong pace should play to her strengths and she's not discounted by any means; handles any ground.

Impressive winner of a C&D handicap on soft ground last May; held her own in stronger company afterwards and she begins this campaign off a fair mark; won on her seasonal debut as a 2yo and although only seventh on last year's return, it was a cracking effort from a bad draw; interesting.

Hard to fancy judged on reappearance run when only ninth of 11 at Chester, but he raced wide that day and soft ground might have been against him; more convincing on a clearcut maiden win at Beverley (5f) last summer on his only encounter with ground firmer than good; could go well at a price.

Has run just four times and he looked a useful prospect when easily winning a Pontefract novice (5f, good to firm) on the third of them last summer; only third of eight when odds-on for York nursery two months later, but he's been gelded since and may well have untapped potential; interesting.

Easy winner in a small field at Redcar (5f, good) in June and he ran creditably when second to Dark Trooper over C&D (good) four weeks ago; no obvious reason why he won't give his running again but he's creeping up the weights and will need another personal best to win again.

Form & Verdict

Just one win from six attempts but she still has potential; made all in convincing fashion at Chelmsford (6f) in April and she was reeled in only late on at Wolverhampton (6f) three weeks ago; has plenty of speed and today's drop to 5f (on turf debut) could unlock further improvement.

Speedily bred son of Bungle Inthejungle; floundered in the mud at Beverley on reappearance but he was quickly back on track with a cosy, strong-travelling win at Redcar (5f, good) 12 days ago; with further improvement very much on the cards, a 6lb rise could be lenient and he may follow up.

Bred to be useful and she took a big step in that direction when bolting up in first-time blinkers at Newcastle (5f, AW; 20-1) last month, making all; a 10lb rise does not look insurmountable and her sole win as a 2yo came on good to firm ground; major player if the headgear works a second time.
