T: Marco Botti

Going the right way, and a handicap win at Doncaster (1m2f) last month was a career best; however, he's up significantly in grade here and will need another jolt of improvement to follow up; the Doncaster run was his first encounter with soft ground, so the more rain that falls, the better.

Form figures of 212 reflect his solid record at novice level; achieved a very useful RPR at Hamilton (1m3f, good to soft) most recently, pulling clear of the remainder; looks the type to improve further and do well in handicaps; respected.

A win and two seconds at novice level, best form when beaten a neck at Hamilton (1m3f, good to soft) in August; rather disappointing when favourite for 1m2f handicap debut at Doncaster (soft) but there's been a rethink about his trip; trainer (runs two) won this race in 2019 and 2022.

Reportedly lost her action on the soft ground when pulled up in the Cheshire Oaks (1m3f) on reappearance; returned to form when fifth of 11 in Listed race at Goodwood (1m2f, good) 16 days later but overdid it up front when tailed off in 1m4f handicap at Royal Ascot (40-1); unfair to judge her on that latest run but she needs overall improvement.

Has form figures of 025 wearing cheekpieces this summer, peak effort when second at Newmarket (1m2f, good to firm); chance partly depends on how he responds to change of headgear (blinkers now applied).
