Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when winning from the front on nursery debut at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) a fortnight ago; should cope with today's return to turf and, given his tendency to race freely, today's drop in trip could be a good move.

Progressive once switched to nurseries last season, winning at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) and Ffos Las (5f, good); seemed to excel himself in a Listed race in France on his final 2yo start and he was hit with a 10lb rise for his troubles; that doesn't look insurmountable given how strongly he travelled through his Bath reappearance 19 days ago (5f, heavy), picked off late by one who's since followed up in Listed company; should be sharper for that run, he's well drawn and looks a leading contender.

His form took off last September, winning nurseries at Wolverhampton (6f, AW) and Ffos Las (5f, good); ended his 2yo campaign with a fine fourth in Listed company at Deauville (5.5f, soft) but he was hit with a 10lb hike in the weights; gelded since last seen; career best required.

Form & Verdict

Made the frame on first four starts, perhaps most notably when close second in Pontefract novice (6f, good to firm) on third occasion; found valuable 6f nursery at Glorious Goodwood far too hot six weeks ago and is not sure to be suited by today's drop back in trip but has sights lowered here and enters calculations.

Form & Verdict

Came good with comfortable 5f maiden success at Chepstow (good to firm) in June but seems to have had limitations exposed since; will find this easier than valuable Sunday Series nursery in which she finished down the field last month but still needs help from the first-time blinkers.

Well beaten over 6f on first two starts but belied 200-1 odds when keeping on for very respectable fourth of ten at Bath (5f, good) three weeks ago; interesting to see whether he can take another step forward on today's nursery debut.

Runner-up over C&D in June on second start then went one better in Goodwood maiden (5f); however, he's been unplaced in 6f nurseries the last twice and needs to raise his game if he's to win this; unraced on slow ground.
