Both wins have been over 7f and a tad further (novice/nursery); ran well at Sandown last time but looks handicapped about right and she was below par on her previous run on soft, albeit at Listed level.

Beat three rivals in an Ayr maiden (5f, good; first-time visor) in May, but although not disgraced he hasn't really built on it in four nurseries in the meantime; has run well on good to soft, but anything softer would be a concern; no headgear today.

Goes on soft; has done well since switching to nurseries and deserved his narrow win at Kempton (6f) off only 3lb lower; that was from a tough draw and his heart seems in the right place.

Surprise winner of a 6f Haydock nursery on good to firm in July; her Leicester second was in line with that form but again conditions were on the quick side and she struggled on soft in between those starts; ran okay on the AW last time.

Left the form of her first three starts well behind her when springing a 28-1 surprise in a Haydock nursery in July (6f, good to firm); back at that level when second of seven at Leicester two weeks ago; creeping up the weights but may have more to come; AW debut.

Reportedly ran flat at Carlisle 13 days ago (6f, good to soft) but she won a 5f novice at Beverley (good to soft) and ran well for a long way when fourth on her nursery debut; questions to answer at 6f but possibilities if shrugging aside that latest effort.

Stepped up from his debut when winning a Ripon novice (5f, good to firm) in June, but held in all three starts since including two nurseries; didn't stay 7f last time, but even if this trip may suit him better he still needs to resume his progress; soft ground remains a question mark; stable runs four.

Won his novice over 5f and hasn't improved for 6f the last twice, latterly finishing 5l off the principals on his nursery debut at York (good to soft); getting back on fast ground may help but it's hard to call him well handicapped and 7f is a grey area.
