Form & Verdict

She didn't have to improve on her earlier efforts to win a 1m2f fillies' novice at Lingfield (AW) in March; bettered her RPR in two handicap runs since (both 1m2f) and there could be more to come now her stamina is being more fully tested.

Form & Verdict

Down the field in his three qualifying runs but he was sent off a warm favourite for his handicap debut at Leicester two weeks ago and showed improvement, still looking green but keeping on well down the middle of the track to finish a half-length fourth (less than a length seperated the first six home); 1lb higher today but stepping up in distance could prompt further progress.

J: Adam Farragher

T: William Haggas

Runner-up at Epsom (1m4f, good to firm) last month on second handicap start and has won his next two (1m4f/1m6f, good to soft/heavy); has travelled really well for those wins and he could have more left in the tank for trainer who has won two of the last four runnings (also saddles Lordship).

9st 2lb

J: David Probert

T: William Haggas

Has improved plenty since handicapping, getting off the mark by nearly 5l at Ascot (1m4f, good to soft) last Friday; has a good chance of staying the longer trip on breeding and 6lb penalty is unlikely to stop him if he's in the same form.

Form & Verdict

Had been knocking at the door prior to his breakthrough success at Ffos Las 18 days ago (1m4f, good), finding plenty when challenged from 1f out; unexposed at the trip and a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run; a good effort at Lingfield in May bodes well for his prospects of handling this track.

Denis Anthony

J: Rowan Scott

T: James Fanshawe

Consistent; successful at Ffos Las (1m4f Class 6, good) in June, and has since acquitted himself well around the southern turf circuit (1m4f-1m6f); competes from a joint career-high on just his second attempt on the AW, so it is possible that he'll find a few stronger; first-time cheekpeices.

Won at Ffos Las (1m4f, good) in June and has continued to run well, latterly not helped by a tepid pace over 1m5f at Lingfield; this trip is worth a go and should be on the scene.

The winner of two of her last four starts, coming home well on top on each occasion (around this trip, both good to firm and in 0-55 company); 6lb rise for latest success might find her out in this higher grade.

AW specialist who won at Southwell (1m3f) early last month; has had some traffic issues since but she got back on the scoresheet with a comfortable success at Chelmsford (1m5f) 11 days ago; a 4lb rise for that win looks fair and she's a big player again back on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at the sixth attempt as a 2yo, keeping on well in a 1m maiden at Brighton (good to soft); two solid placed efforts over the extended 1m3f at Windsor this season (gelded after his reappearance); tongue-tie (worn independently in the past) now accompanies the blinkers; career best required.
