Form & Verdict

Has won two of her three starts and appeared to enjoy the soft ground when emerging from off the pace to collect by just under a length on her nursery debut at Ripon 17 days ago; had a bit to spare on that occasion and a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

Three wins (6f, various ground) from her first four starts before a solid third in a nursery at Doncaster (6.5f, soft) a fortnight ago; tackles a new trip here but her dam won over 9.4f and she's a player if she stays.

J: Darragh Keenan

T: George Scott

The winner of three of four races, all at 6f, with the wins on good to firm, soft and good to soft; this is more demanding up 7lb but she was strong at the finish at Hamilton last time and today's extra yardage should suit on pedigree; may not have reached her ceiling just yet.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in three of his four races for Richard Hannon (same ownership) and the no-show came in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot; taken out of a Goodwood maiden on account of the deteriorating ground; this will be the stiffest test of stamina he's faced.

His only blip in five runs came when outclassed in the Windsor Castle; probably ran as well as he ever has when second to an improver at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) last time and gets in here off the same mark; withdrawn when the ground was soft at Yarmouth yesterday.

Promise in two of his three starts in novice/maiden company over 5f (lesser effort came on good to firm); looks ready for 6f and he brings potential to this nursery debut.

Ended last season with a couple of 5f wins on soft ground, coming from off a strong pace both times; clear possibilities in hat-trick attempt, provided this race pans out similarly well back at 6f.

Not far behind Jungle Jim on soft at Thirsk before running quite well on his nursery debut at Hamilton where possibly stretched by 6f; should be in the thick of it.

Form & Verdict

Drew clear with the well-backed winner when second of nine on his nursery debut at Thirsk four weeks ago (6f, soft); 6lb rise to deal with but the stiff test at the trip should suit and the best could still be to come.

Improved on previous efforts when beaten half a length into second of nine on nursery debut at Thirsk (6f, soft) in July, but raced too freely when fourth of five at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) last month; chance if bouncing back and being proven on soft ground a plus if condtions remain testing.
