Has gained both wins (AW/turf) at about 1m but recent effort suggest she's ready for a crack at 1m2f; drops back in grade off a workable mark and has a fighting chance on best form.

Similar type to Overnight Oats, having gone down by only half a length in C&D contest (good) on latest outing; raced mainly in Class 5 and now goes back up in grade but having Epsom form is a major plus; likely to perform well again; one for the shortlist.

Consistent maiden who has performed creditably in handicaps over 5f, 6f and 7f this season; latest effort (in higher grade at York) suggests 1m is likely to suit; possibilities upped further in trip.

Scored four times around 1m in 2023 and enhanced his good strike-rate on turf when getting on top towards the finish on last week's 1m Pontefract reappearance (soft); good second over C&D last autumn; a 5lb penalty demands another career best but no surprise were he to find it; on the shortlist.

Enjoyed an excellent 2023, scoring four times at around 1m and closing with a solid fourth in 9.5f Wolverhampton handicap on Boxing Day; he's very much one to consider on his seasonal return.

Form & Verdict

Proved one of the lesser lights at the Gosden yard last term; made an encouraging reappearance (7f, AW) but posted a lesser effort back on turf (1m) later in May; others preferred.

Yet to win in 12 attempts but has run well on occasions, notably when runner-up at Newcastle last June; fair turf run on reappearance at Doncaster (7f, soft); place chance.

In good form without winning on the AW last season until only seventh of ten in 7f Wolverhampton handicap on her most recent run in October; she's not ruled out on her return off an easing mark.

Still a maiden after ten starts but she was a close third of 11 over C&D on latest start, always prominent and rallying in first-time cheekpieces, which are retained today; each-way contender.

Form & Verdict

Sole 2yo win came on AW and ran respectably in that sphere on reappearance; well held at Newmarket last time, taking turf record to 0-4; others are more appealing.

Showed steady progress in defeat at novice level; however, has gone backwards since handicapping; chance largely depends on how well he takes to first-time headgear.
