Ninth in the Windsor Castle after winning at Bath first time out; fared best of those who raced prominently when third of nine on nursery debut at Haydock and it was a very strong nursery in which he failed to fire at York's Ebor meeting (first-time blinkers); has only raced on fast ground but he has form claims.

Has won all three nurseries and was good value for her near 2l success at Windsor (6f, good to firm; also won on good) as she didn't get the clearest of passages; has another 7lb to deal with in what looks a stronger race and these softer conditions are a worry (based on past form and her action).

She has made giant strides since handicapping, winning three times in a lower grade before a creditable second at Yarmouth last week (Class 4, soft ground); clear of the third on that occasion so wouldn't be confident the handicapper has her measure just yet.

Promising debut last June (fourth behind the reopposing Kinnigoli Kid) and he made no mistake on his second start, seeing off 12 rivals at Windsor in July (6f, good); perhaps unsuited by soft ground on his nursery debut at Yarmouth when last seen in September; gelded after; this mark looks tough though.

Similar form in his three defeats over 6f (beaten 4l or less) and it was always going to be tough when 100-1 for a sales race at York four weeks ago (in first-time cheekpieces having been gelded); could win races off this sort of mark.

It was a winnable novice he picked up at Chelmsford (6f AW) and, from the front, there were no obvious excuses when a well-held fourth under a penalty at Kempton; probably has to hit new heights to defy this mark.
