Lesser efforts on AW since showing some promise at York (6f, good to firm; finished fourth) on debut; may well start to progress now handicapping and returned to turf; one to consider.

Has mixed record in six starts but he won a Thirsk handicap (6f, soft) for Richard Fahey in the autumn and was a creditable fourth at Southwell (1m, AW; cheekpieces added) on his recent stable debut; now steps up to 1m2f but he's still unexposed and could be dangerous if his stamina holds out.

Looked better than bare result on latest 5f start, having met a spot of traffic then come wide late on; appears ready for a crack at 6f; open to improvement on second nursery attempt.

Unlucky in similar event at Newcastle (6f, AW; nursery debut; beaten narrowly) last week, as he would likely have won but for being hampered at the start and forced to switch in the latter stages; great chance off same mark, provided he transfers the form back to turf.

Expensive to follow since handicapping but was rather drawn away from the action on Tapeta comeback and entitled to improve for a trainer who wouldn't be a regular visitor to these parts, 3-16 in last five years.

Best effort in five runs last year when beaten a head on nursery debut over C&D in September after having been squeezed out at the start; interesting back here, but whether he will need it after seven months off remains to be seen; stable also runs Chillout Charlie.

Has improved for the switch to nursery level, finishing second at Bath (good to soft) then going one better at Beverley (good to firm), both over 5f; should be as effective back at 6f and warrants respect.

Two 5f wins (good to firm/AW) from final three starts last year; has shown promise on soft/good to soft; has something to prove back up in trip on reappearance, having faded over 6f two starts ago, but he could have more to offer this season and is not ruled out.

Five-race maiden who has failed to improve in two nursery attempts, both at about 7f in cheekpieces; chance depends on how well he responds to change of headgear and drop back in trip.

Beaten about 9l when upped in trip and seventh of 12 on recent nursery debut at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm); however, that doesn't tell the full story as he got behind after switching to the inside from the widest draw, and the prominent-racers dominated; could be more competitive here.

Well held in 1m nursery here nine days ago; standout effort came at Doncaster (6f) on sole attempt on ground softer than good; may improve granted a slow surface; headgear enlisted.

5f winner in May for Alice Haynes; has failed to beat a rival in three runs since, including two for new yard; going the wrong way and first-time headgear needs to make a big difference.
