Form & Verdict

Has shown steady improvement in each of his runs and could have done with a truer all-round gallop when a beaten favourite on his nursery debut at Newcastle (7f); this could also turn out tactical but he's bred for this far.

Form & Verdict

Excellent first nursery effort when a running-on fourth of 20 at York's Ebor meeting (7f) and he duly benefited from stepping up to 1m when a clearcut winner at Newcastle (AW) last week; penalty represents the exact amount he was raised but he looks on a sharp upward curve.

Improved for the switch to nurseries when keeping on for fourth at York two weeks ago (7f, good to firm; hung left); that effort suggested he was ready for 1m and he needs serious consideration on AW debut.

Promising second of 13 on his Redcar debut (6f, good) in June; hasn't built on that over 7f twice since and needs to get back on the up now handicapping.

Form & Verdict

Split subsequent winners when runner-up over a little shorter at Beverley (good to firm) second time out and it was her first run on soft ground when dropping out to be well beaten at Goodwood; this initial mark is no gift, though.

Solid second in a pair of maidens at about 7f on good to firm, latest at Beverley where she split subsequent winners; goes into a much bigger field this time but she's one of the main form contenders.
