Form & Verdict

Well backed when making a winning nursery debut at Windsor three weeks ago (6f, good; tongue-tied first time), coming from well back in a strongly run event; still looked a bit green on that occasion but he was seen to best effect the way things panned out; 6lb rise asks a stiffer question.

Her first two runs were encouraging but she hasn't progressed, albeit she looked stretched by 7f at Leicester three weeks ago; this is uncompetitive and she can't be discounted dropping in grade.

0-6 but she ran her best race so far when runner-up behind a well-backed favourite in a C&D nursery (good) eight days ago; did clear best of the closers in that race and she's a big player off same mark; hood added.

Form & Verdict

Placed in just one of his seven starts but he has hinted at better on a couple of occasions; not beaten far into fourth at Chepstow on Monday (5f, good to soft) without suggesting that the return to 6f was in order.

33-1 and no improvement for the switch to nurseries at Chepstow on Monday; runs off the same mark today and needs the step back up in trip and addition of a tongue-tie to give her a lift.

Improved from a moderate debut on both subsequent starts (all 6f on a sound surface); initial mark looks stiff based strictly on form and she will need improvement to break her duck on this nursery debut.

Form & Verdict

Gelded prior to his nursery debut here (5.5f, good; sent off favourite) 13 days ago and he showed improvement, still green but keeping on steadily close home; the extra distance should suit and he remains capable of better.
