Won on debut at Chelmsford (7f, AW) last November; has been headstrong on both runs since, most recently on his turf and handicap debut at Goodwood (1m, good) two weeks ago, but he still managed to finish second last time and has potential if able to settle better; trainer won this last year.

0-7 but appeared to be suited by the drop back in trip when going close at Sandown (7f, good to firm) three weeks ago, when he was wide into the straight; versatile ground-wise and could be thereabouts once more.

Goes well with positive tactics and got off the mark after a gelding operation by making all in maiden at Bath (5.7f, good to soft; handles good to firm) last month; could be unexposed as a sprinter (campaigned at 7f/1m earlier in career) and he needs serious consideration back in a handicap.

Three solid runs in defeat at Goodwood (1m, good to soft-good to firm) before good second at Newmarket (1m, good to soft) nine days ago in first-time blinkers (retained); this drop back in distance isn't an obvious plus but there's every chance he'll again be in the mix.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); proved his stamina for 1m when third at the York Ebor meeting; should be sharper for a reappearance run at Newmarket last month but the forecast rain is a potential issue as he's shown his form on good/good to firm (below par only start on good to soft); also drawn widest.

Prominent-racer who won twice last summer (7f, good to firm/good); close third over 1m at York last August and campaign concluded with good second here (7f); he could continue to progress this season and can make a bold bid if fully tuned up for this reappearance outing.

Made all in fine style at Redcar (7f, good to soft) last October on her second start and she's certainly of interest on the promise shown there; however, she bucked early in the race when well beaten on her recent reappearance at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) and comes with risks attached.

Well beaten at York (6f, good to firm) latest but prior to that he reappeared with a close second there (7f, good) and he's a contender if rediscovering that form now back up in trip; has run well on good to soft.
