Form & Verdict

Consistent in nurseries (record 2121), but a 5lb rise for latest Wolverhampton success (5f, AW) and taking on much better company demands more; not dismissed entirely, though.

Won three times over 5f last season (soft/AW) including in two handicaps; also good second over 7f at Lingfield (AW); rather disappointing since an 88-day break on last two starts, though, and has a bit to prove.

Kept busy as a 2yo (3-13) including a success at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta); faced a stiff task at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) 11 days ago and back in calmer waters with first-time blinkers replacing the usual visor, but this trip looks right on the limit of her stamina.

Form & Verdict

Made a successful debut at Carlisle (5f, good) in June (form worked out well) and, despite a two-month absence and pulling hard, managed to follow up under his penalty in a Ripon novice (5f, good) last month (fourth has won since); makes his nursery debut from the inside stall and likely there is more to come from him; much respected.

Highly tried since winning a maiden over C&D (soft) in May, but twice placed in Listed company and not disgraced when seventh of the 22 runners in the valuable sales contest at York (6f, good to firm) last time; makes his nursery debut, but the outside stall does make things a bit tricky.

Consistent gelding who bolted up in a Beverley maiden (5f, good tp firm) last month and finished runner-up in nurseries either side; should run his race again, but a stiffer 5f or 6f may suit him best.

Impressive on his Goodwood debut (6f, good) in May and was sent off just 5-1 for the Windsor Castle on the strength of that, but could manage only a midfield finish and his two starts since have been modest, including on nursery debut at York (6f, good to firm) last time (behind Ganesha); best watched.

Both wins over 5f at Hamilton including on nursery debut (good to soft) in July; ran just as well when second at York (6f, good) nine days later, but well held over the same C&D (good to firm) last month; return to this trip may help, but others look stronger.

Three wins over 5f last year, the last on AW debut at Newcastle (Tapeta) in October; returns from six months off having been gelded in the meantime and may see this trip out better as a 3yo, but he looks vulnerable to something a bit less exposed.

Form & Verdict

Has improved with each start, making a successful nursery debut at Lingfield (5f, AW) ten days ago; 5lb higher and needs to show she can do it back on grass, but her ability to cope with a sharp left-handed track is a positive; shortlisted from a good draw.
