Failed to win in 23 starts in Ireland but she ran out the comfortable winner of a 2m handicap at Wolverhampton on her stable debut last June (well backed); that form is rock solid for the grade and she still has potential as a stayer; has an absence to overcome but her yard is going well and she's of serious interest.

On dangerous mark and has form over staying trips, but he's yet to win beyond 1m5f; probably did too much too soon when a fair fourth at Nottingham (1m6f, soft) last month but he looks vulnerable again on this step back up to 2m.

Off the mark at the ninth attempt with a narrow win at Southwell (2m, Tapeta) in April; ran well to a point when third at Salisbury next time but he was tailed off at Ripon on his last outing; had an excuse on soft ground that day but he has a patchy profile and others are more convincing.

All five wins have come on AW (1m4f-2m) and the latest was a clearcut success here (1m6f) 24 days ago; a 3lb rise for that win looks fair and he's a big player again with Hollie Doyle booked.
