Appeared to find the sharp 5f at Chester inadequate last time but shaped as if still in form; consistent overall and, though only 1-8, looks likely to go well; return to stiffer course is a plus.

Won Beverley maiden (5f, good to firm) in August on fifth run and back on the scoresheet in recent Hamilton nursery (5f, good to soft); further improvement needed to defy 5lb rise in this better race, but it's possible.

Consistent gelding who bolted up in a Beverley maiden (5f, good tp firm) last month and finished runner-up in nurseries either side; should run his race again, but a stiffer 5f or 6f may suit him best.

Similar type to Sankari, being 2-7 and suited by this track; indeed he's 2-2 here, including a nursery win off just 1lb lower (good to soft); interesting back down in class and returned to Hamilton.

Modest fourth over C&D three weeks ago, again failing to back up the Pontefract success which remains her standout piece of form in five starts; not exactly solid on handicap debut.

9-1 and outsider of the four runners when splitting experienced opposition at Hamilton (6f; good to soft), having been headed in the final 100 yards; this is much deeper but that was a promising start, and the yard's 2yos are on a high after Saturday's Group-race success at Ascot.
