Form & Verdict

She has finished third in three of her four starts, unable to improve for the switch to nurseries at Newmarket 13 days ago (6f, soft); this is a weaker event and the extra furlong could help too.

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.

Both turf runs encouraging, the latest on soft ground when 2l away in a 5f maiden at Ripon; fair mark on that form and 6f could suit.

Not obviously thrown in ahead of his nursery debut but a step up to 7f can help and faces more realistic opposition today; betting useful.

1-8 as a 2yo with his win coming in a Ffos Las nursery (6f, good to soft) in September; looked in need of the run when a well-held fourth of six on his Haydock return (7f, soft) 13 days ago; winner has gone in again since, but this one looks vulnerable to an improver.

Off the mark in Ffos Las nursery (6f, good to soft) in early September; couple of defeats since, below par both times, leave him looking more exposed than many of these rivals.

Form & Verdict

He hasn't progressed from a creditable fifth of nine at Hamilton on debut (6f, good) but a case can be argued on that initial effort and he's bred to stay this far; Harry Davies takes off a useful 3lb; interesting.

She made a winning stable debut at Chelmsford in June (6f) but she's shown better form in defeat in two nurseries since, latterly second of nine upped to this trip at Chester 12 days ago (made the running; soft); due to be 4lb higher from the weekend; cheekpieces now tried.
