Yet to build on her 6f maiden third at Kempton in June but she didn't get the chance to show what she could do when stepped up to 7f for the first time in a Newmarket nursery a fortnight ago, meeting trouble at a crucial stage; the yard's 2yos are in good form and no shock were she to go well.

Favourite for all three starts, showing promise on the first two (C&D latterly); gelded since finishing a disappointing fifth when odds on at Epsom in July; still early days and interesting to see if his supporters keep the faith on this nursery debut.

Beautifully bred colt who was sent off 9-4 favourite when beaten less than a length into fourth of 11 on his Yarmouth debut (7f, good to firm) this month; will need to settle better than he did then, but if he does he is much respected for stable that has won this race twice since 2015, including a division of it with Native Trail (on debut) two years ago.

Ploughed through the mud to win the Brocklesby at Doncaster (5f; only start for Robyn Brisland) in April but has disappointed in a 6f Newbury novice and a 7f Goodwood nursery; it's too soon to write him off but he arrives with a bit to prove.

Seven-race maiden; didn't have things go his way - bumped at the start and also ran wide - when returning from a gelding operation at Lingfield (1m2f; 40-1) six-weeks ago; his overall profile isn't that enticing though as the handicapper cuts him yet more slack (down 3lb).

Bounced straight back from a disappointing run at Newbury when making all in a 7f Kempton novice last month; that form has taken a couple of knocks and his opening mark isn't obviously generous, but he did impress with the way he went clear before the pack closed in near the finish; should be able to get a handy position from his draw near the rail.
