Form & Verdict

Has done well in nurseries, winning in tidy style at Bath (5f, good to soft) last month and running a subsequent winner to a neck at Musselburgh (5f, good) 13 days ago; half-brother and dam both won on the AW and she shouldn't be far away.

Won three times over 5f last season (soft/AW) including in two handicaps; also good second over 7f at Lingfield (AW); rather disappointing since an 88-day break on last two starts, though, and has a bit to prove.

Kept busy as a 2yo (3-13) including a success at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta); faced a stiff task at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) 11 days ago and back in calmer waters with first-time blinkers replacing the usual visor, but this trip looks right on the limit of her stamina.

Runner-up in a C&D novice (first-time tongue-tie) in June, but hasn't built on it and finished nearly 2l behind Scoops Ahoy when third of four in a Sandown nursery (5f, heavy) 15 days ago; needs the return here and switch to blinkers to bring about a resurgence.

Modest effort on turf on his second outing, but runner-up in both of his starts on the AW either side and only just failed to get up over C&D 13 days ago with a big gap back to the third; solid chance if able to repeat that performance on nursery debut.

Excelled himself when third of 14 at 125-1 in a Newmarket novice (6f, good to firm) in May, but nothing remotely close to that in five starts otherwise; half-brother to two AW winners which offers some hope and first-time blinkers now replace cheekpieces.

Improved from her debut when fourth of nine at Beverley (5f, good to firm) last month and heavy ground may have been to blame for her lesser effort back there 17 days later; half-sister to a Tapeta winner and open to improvement on nursery/AW debut; worth a second look.

Hamilton winner (5f, good to firm) in June and returned to something like his best when second of four in a Sandown nursery (5f, heavy) 15 days ago; races off the same mark, but hasn't always looked the easiest and a couple of the others make greater appeal.
