1-13 for the Fell and Murray yard, the win gained in Musselburgh nursery (5f, good to soft) in September; ended last season with two lesser efforts and changed hands for 4,000gns in October; market may guide on stable debut.

Soft ground could be a concern but has improved to finish second in his last two nurseries, not helped by the start when behind Secret Command at Carlisle nine days ago; could go well.

Creditable second at Thirsk on debut (5f, soft) but hasn't really progressed; not run to his best over 6f so far and others may have greater potential; blinkers added for nursery debut.

Finished closer than previously when beaten just under 4l on her handicap debut at Ripon (5f, good) but was still only sixth of seven; needs more.

Low-level maiden after five starts; ran in handicaps on last two and her fifth of 13 at Beverley (5f, good to firm) last time was easily her closest finish, in cheekpieces first time; needs to build on that.

Soundly beaten on all four starts, last time seventh of ten on nursery debut at Doncaster (6f, soft); however, she's in good hands and the drop back in trip, better ground and first-time cheekpieces are possible positives.
