Weakened into last of seven on nursery debut at Newmarket (7f, good) a fortnight ago and her tendency to race too freely remains a worry but she ran well to a point in that race and is sure to appreciate this significant ease in grade.

Ten-race maiden but he ran well for a long way at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) last time and was beaten only 2l; this drop back in trip looks a good move and he could make a bold bid back on turf; reapplied blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Caused 150-1 shock when upped to 7f for nursery debut at Lingfield (good to firm) in July and backed up that run with close second at Windsor (6f, good) last month; back up in trip here and a likely contender again, assuming he handles the return to Polytrack.

Sprung a 150-1 surprise on his nursery debut here (7f, good to firm) in July; has backed that up with several good efforts, including a 1m win at Chelmsford in November; another career best will be required if he's to win this but that's quite possible.

Well beaten when 66-1 for nursery debut at Ffos Las (6f, soft) in late July; sports first-time cheekpieces here and today's trip-and-surface combination may show him in a better light, but it still takes a leap of faith to support him.
