J: David Allan

T: Tim Easterby

Comes alive at Pontefract and was gaining his fifth course win from seven goes when gamely scoring over 1m4f in June; not disgraced at Haydock last time; stays 2m and will probably see out this slightly longer distance; seems equally effective on good to firm and good to soft; solid contender.

Form & Verdict

Didn't show much last year on her three 2yo starts (1m, AW) but this 265,000gns yearling is by Sea The Stars and there can be optimism she will be an entirely different proposition now upped in trip on her handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up off this mark on his handicap and seasonal debut over C&D (soft) in April; hasn't built on that on his two runs since but it was a fair performance over 2m at Newcastle three weeks ago, when fading, and this lightly raced 4yo is not ruled out now back down in trip.

Unplaced favourite at Chepstow (1m4f, good to firm) last month; has won on fast ground in the past but this season's good results have come on soft/good to soft ground and in the expectation he is back on an easier surface here, he could bounce back with a big run.
