Form & Verdict

Progressive form in his first three starts (5f-7f) and he took another major step forward when going very close on his nursery debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last week; pulled 6l clear with a 1-3 shot in that race and he's well treated off the same mark (due to be 5lb higher in future) on this return to turf; strong contender.

Had a good opportunity at Ffos Las (1m, good to soft) on final start for Ivan Furtado, as he was ahead of the assessor; came up well short off revised mark at Ripon and appears unlikely to defy top weight.

Finished down the field in all four starts, including when seventh of eight on his nursery debut at Newcastle (7f, AW; 14-1) ten days ago; takes another step up in trip here and he needs to do much better back on turf.

Form & Verdict

Well held at big prices in his three runs so far but he got closer to the target in a 7f Brighton maiden (good to firm; first run since gelded) two weeks ago; that was an encouraging effort from off the pace and he's open to more progress upped to 1m on nursery debut.

Has improved since running in handicaps but he didn't repeat a better effort at Chelmsford (1m2f) in October when failing to put up much resistance there after; needs to raise his game after a break.

Form & Verdict

Her best effort from three runs was a fourth of seven in a Chester seller (7f, good) on her second start; now makes her nursery debut but opening mark looks on the high side and not sure this step up to 1m will suit on pedigree; others preferred.

Finished ahead of just two rivals in three novice/maidens events (6f/7f) on good or slower ground; still early days and now now switches to a nursery but he needs plenty of progress on this step up to 1m; tongue-tie added.
