Form & Verdict

Yet to make a serious impact after five races; fourth in a C&D handicap (good) on penultimate start was probably his best form but he needs better; cheekpieces are given a go.

Form & Verdict

Well bred; his win when 8-13 in a maiden at Pontefract (1m2f; all three turf starts on good) in July on fourth start came in pretty much last-gasp fashion; gelded not long afterwards and this handicap debut is his first run since; could have more to offer.

Has improved with each of his three starts (1m, AW/good), most recently a good third at Newmarket; this well-bred Sea The Stars colt could continue to progress now up in trip and he's a leading contender.

Winning a maiden at Goodwood (1m, heavy) in May is far miles better than his other three runs; latest was his handicap debut, back at Goodwood (their big meeting; 50-1) over 1m2f on soft; now tries a hood.

Drew 3l clear in maiden here (1m, heavy) in May on second start; manner of that win suggested that he could improve again once moved up to this trip, but the opposite happened in a 1m2f novice on good at Windsor in June; return to testing ground may be key; either way, big improvement is needed on this handicap debut in such a competitive race.

Form & Verdict

First three starts were on softer than good, showing fair form, whereas she was a tailed-off last of six on handicap debut at Newbury on latest when running on good to firm; ran freely that day, but also absent 105 days since; lightly raced and back on softer ground but needs overall improvement.

Unable to get competitive on her three runs this year and she's unraced beyond 11.3f; however, this 3yo remains lightly raced and showed promise when winning a Nottingham maiden (8.3f, soft) last October; the first-time hood could help her settle better and she has potential at the trip; interesting.

All three starts on softer than good; made all for clearcut success in Nottingham maiden (1m, soft) in October on second outing; 7-1, not disgraced facing a stiff task in Cheshire Oaks at Chester (11.3f) latest; has big-race entries and it will be interesting to see if those are backed up with market strength on this handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Sole win came over C&D (good to soft) last month three starts ago when benefiting from a well-judged front-running ride in amateur event; that form looks unreliable and he's opposable on his other efforts.

Last season petered out tamely after making most in an amateur riders' race at Sandown (1m2f, good to soft) in August when 2lb higher; not without hope if all the better for a break but it's easy to have doubts.
