9st 9lb

J: Pierre-Louis Jamin

T: Tom Dascombe

Has to concede weight all round but he's 3-5 on soft/heavy going and one of the wins came at this venue (7f); likely to stay 1m and holds solid claims with conditions in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten on all three starts (6f/5f, good to firm/good) and she's 2lb out of the handicap on nursery debut; however, she's bred to improve for the step up in trip and her pedigree suggests soft ground will suit (dam ran well over 1m here on soft); interesting for last year's winning yard.

Form & Verdict

All four runs on good/faster; made the frame on first three starts (one here) then went close on nursery debut at Leicester (7f); pedigree offers hope regarding testing conditions, and the way he rallied last time suggests he'll be suited by the stiffer stamina test today's ground will provide.

Ran seven times during last year's 2yo campaign, running well far more often than not and posting a 7f novice win; gelded since; however, he needs to be better than ever to land this competitive handicap on his comeback.

Won at Beverley (7.4f, soft) in June on second start but there have been mixed messages from that form and she was only fifth of six at Ayr (7f, good to soft) last time; needs to raise her game now tackling a nursery.

Turf winner at about 7f; has raced over a range of trips for new connections (1m, 1m4f and 7f) and didn't get much luck in running at Wolverhampton two weeks ago; worth another go at 1m but is quite exposed and unraced here.

Won at Thirsk (6f, good to firm) on second start and kept on for second of four in 6f nursery at Hamilton (good to soft, soft in places; unraced on slower) a fortnight ago; dam's side of pedigree suggests this step up to 7f will be a positive and he could have a part to play.
