All three starts on soft/good to soft; scored at Ripon (5f) on first occasion and went very close in the Hornblower back there (6f) latest; still open to further progress and commands respect with William Buick on board, especially if the ground is on the slow side.

Form & Verdict

Out of a 2yo Listed sprint winner on soft ground; made a promising start when runner-up over C&D (good to firm) last month but he was disappointing when favourite at Wolverhampton (well-held fourth) last time; has a bit to prove after that but his initial form puts him firmly in the picture.

Best run on turf was when runner-up to a useful sort in a 5f maiden here in July (soft; third has won since); off the mark in a Kempton maiden in February, but well below his best on handicap debut at Southwell earlier this month (5f; cheekpieces); headgear retained; up to 6f for the first time.

£70,000 2yo; made an encouraging start when third of 12 at Yarmouth (5f, good to firm) in May but she finished last of ten when upped to this trip at Kempton (AW) last month; that was from a wide draw but she never got involved and others are preferred.

She was up in trip and back on better ground at Epsom (7f, good) last month for her second nursery start and she showed improved form to win; the runner-up went one better next time and her attractive pedigree provides hope she will continue to progress; possible player up 6lb.

Has quite a bit of stamina on the dam's side of his striking pedigree and he failed to beat a rival over 6f at Haydock (good to firm; 10-1) on his debut last month; has a lot to find on this drop in trip and he's probably one for further down the line.

Minor promise on turf but his form has taken off since switched to AW, completing a quick hat-trick in the last month (6f-7f, Tapeta and Polytrack); seemed to resent being behind horses at Lingfield last week, pulling extremely hard in the early stages and doing well to finish as close as he did in the circumstances; still feasibly treated on earlier efforts and this C&D winner might prove happier back on a straight track.

Prominent-racer who won over C&D last month on his AW debut and second nursery start, and has won twice since (7f/6f, Tapeta), the latest at Newcastle on Monday when comfortably making all; his penalties are mounting up but he's 3-3 on AW and clearly thriving, and has to be respected.

Went with a good pace and showed the right attitude when winning at Wolverhampton last Monday; a 6lb penalty will make things tougher, having gone up 8lb for his previous win, but he looks on the upgrade and should be fine down from 7f.
