Lightly raced 3yo who won a Wolverhampton novice (7f, Tapeta) last month and found more progress upped to 1m2f when scoring on her handicap debut at Windsor 12 days ago; up 4lb but she kept on well under a positive ride last time and is open to more improvement; interesting contender.

Dual-purpose performer who has won five times on the Flat but his last success was almost a year ago; went close at Doncaster (1m6f, good) last month but he's been disappointing in both subsequent runs and looks opposable on this big drop back in trip.

Has struggled on turf in his last two starts but he's 2-3 on Tapeta and still looks feasibly treated on his comfortable win at Wolverhampton (1m4f) in March; should get a decent pace on this drop back in trip and it wouldn't be a surprise if he bounced back with a big run.
