Solid record on this track for new yard, winning two from five starts (at 1m6f and 2m) and going down only narrowly to one who is unexposed as a stayer last time out; looks good for another big run.

Progressive in May/June, including with 1m4f classified wins at Lingfield (AW) and Brighton; off 79 days when below-form favourite at Wolverhampton 12 days ago but he did stay on and looks worth a go at 1m6f; considered.

Form & Verdict

Unraced here; won on AW in January (1m2f/1m4f) in his first two handicaps; no advances since but there was a 169-day break before latest start, a fair effort, so perhaps he can build on that; moves up in trip.

Won easily at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in October when wearing cheekpieces for the first time (retained since); hasn't run badly the next twice but needs to better those performances if he's to return to winning ways.

Six-race maiden; clearly best effort when beaten a neck on handicap/seasonal debut (1m4f, good) in July, making most; raced freely both starts since, the latest when upped to 1m6f; this is her first AW run since last term.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed filly who found improvement when upped to 11.4f on her handicap debut, coming fourth of seven at Windsor (good) last month; that was in a muddling race but she did her best work in the closing stages and should have more to offer; with stamina on the dam's side, she needs respect.

Bits of encouraging turf form for previous stable; failed to match it last month on debut for new yard, taking record to 0-7, and still has something to prove on AW.

0-6 for David Menuisier, close fourth at Windsor (11.5f) when last seen; sold for 9,000gns since; use the market signals as a guide on debut for new yard.

Unexposed after only five starts and wasn't beaten far when fourth of seven over C&D (good) on handicap debut in August but last month's AW run was disappointing and her tendency to race too freely remains a concern.

Second handicap when upped to 1m6f for a win at Wolverhampton (AW) in July; unraced here but showed he's effective at the other two Polytrack courses when beaten about 2l on last two outings; player.
