Won off 1lb lower over C&D (good) last September but he's finished down the field on AW in his four subsequent runs; now steps back up in trip but he can miss the break and needs a major revival back on turf; equipment removed.

0-10 and unproven at the trip but she kept on well for fourth over 1m5f at Bath (good to soft) in August and did likewise there (11.6f, good to firm) most recently; the cheekpieces adopted last time are now left off; this step back up in trip could prompt some improvement and she's one to consider.

Started out in bumpers and was well held in his first six starts but he shaped with promise when a fading fourth in a Leicester handicap (1m4f, good) last month; wasn't beaten far in that race and could be dangerous if he can build on that back in trip; all of his turf runs have been on good/good to firm.
