Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten after racing too freely on last month's handicap debut (6f) but belied 40-1 odds when close second in Leicester novice (5f, soft) in July, and that performance brings her right into the equation today.

9st 6lb

J: Alex Fielding

T: Tim Easterby

Off the mark in a modest Musselburgh novice (5f, good to soft) in September, but has failed to threaten since returning to handicap company, including here the last twice; an easing mark offers some hope though, and she's seemingly effective over 6f.

J: David Allan

T: Tim Easterby

Ready winner of a small-field novice event at Musselburgh in September but that win is sandwiched by three lesser efforts in handicaps, including over C&D three weeks ago (50-1); others are more appealing.

J: Duran Fentiman

Only made her debut in June and landed a Musselburgh novice (5f, good to soft) in September, but well held in both handicaps either side; needs to bounce back, but her half-brother won over C&D last month which offers some optimism.

Form & Verdict

In the frame all four starts, most recently when close second in Class 5 handicap at Hamilton (6f, good) 12 days ago; has a bit to find on the figures with Alexi Boy here and will have something to prove if the ground is slower than good but this strong traveller may benefit from the drop to 5f.

J: Jason Hart

T: Katie Scott

Proved consistent in her first season of racing, winning a 6f handicap at Ayr (soft) and finishing second on a further five occasions; showed some aptitude for AW when last seen in November and she can progress again this year; is conceding race fitness to her rivals today though.

J: Mr Eireann Cagney

T: Katie Scott

Lightly-raced and progressive filly who was finishing second for the fifth time in eight starts when headed on the finishing like at Redcar three weeks ago (6f, soft); creeping up the weights and untried on AW but her dam won here and a good amateur takes the ride; more to come.

Form & Verdict

Out of a useful 5f winner; well beaten after racing too freely on last month's debut at Carlisle (6f, good to firm); probably one for a bit further down the line.

9st 5lb

J: Mark Winn

T: Iain Jardine

No immediate improvement for the switch to handicaps when finishing seventh of 14 at Musselburgh four weeks ago (5f, good) but she didn't enjoy a smooth run through at a crucial stage; still has time to do better which makes her unique in this field; stable going along nicely too.

Tailed off at 100-1 in Newcastle novice (6f, AW) 17 days ago and needs to leave that run well behind, but she was previously a fair third of five over this C&D (good to soft) on her second start; makes her handicap debut and a case can be made on that penultimate form.

Seventh foal; sister to two useful sprinters from this stable; dam 5f winner (79), half-sister to 6f Group 3 winner Jack Dexter; would be a rare winning newcomer for the stable.
