Form & Verdict

Failed to show much as 2yo but close third of ten in novice at Newmarket (1m, good; 28-1) on recent return, always in touch and challenging strongly from over 1f out; that makes her the form pick and contained promise too.

J: Kevin Stott

T: Richard Hannon

Didn't show much as a 2yo but she's done well in her two runs this season, with a close third at Newmarket (1m, good) followed by a win in a Doncaster novice (7f, good) 16 days ago; that was a narrow success but she's open to more progress back up in trip and is respected on her handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Has a pretty useful pedigree and second of nine in novice at Nottingham (6f, good) last August was a promising start; not seen since (fractured his pelvis; gelded this May) but could still be a leading contender, particularly granted the positive signal of some confidence behind him in the market.

Consistent and unexposed gelding who made it fifth-time lucky in first-time cheekpieces here (7f) in November (form worked out well); 4lb higher and up a furlong on this return from 133 days off; open to further progress and a big player if ready to go.
