Form & Verdict

Mid-division on debut in warm maiden at Newmarket (7f, good) and close third at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft) next time, when half a length behind the newcomer Align The Stars; there's stamina on the dam's side of his pedigree and, now up in trip, there's every chance he'll be in the mix.

Goodwood maiden winner (1m2f, soft) last September and may have needed his Doncaster reappearance (1m2f, soft) a fortnight ago; open to further improvement, but the shorter trip and drying ground could pose a question.

Progressive Territories colt who landed 1m2f Goodwood maiden before signing off with an excellent second of five in 1m2f Nottingham nursery later in the autumn; up 2lb but not taken lightly on his seasonal return.

Brother to 1m2f-1m5f Group 3 winner Al Aasy who was a close second at 5-1 on last month's debut at Hamilton (8.3f, good to soft); open to improvement now up in trip and he's a leading contender.

Late foal; runner-up on first two starts (on softer than good at 1m and 1m2f) and creditable, never-nearer fourth of nine in novice at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) in November; this brother to Al Aasy (1m2f-1m5f; RPR 122) and Sea Flawless (1m2f; 91) could be a major improver this term.

22-1, kept on for encouraging sixth of 12 on recent debut at Salisbury (1m, good to firm); this 110,000gns Camelot colt is open to improvement now up in trip and his trainer has won two of the last four runnings; respected.

4-1 against a hat-trick seeker and a well-backed handicap debutant from the Gosden yard when finishing last of five on handicap debut over 1m3f at Southwell in February (hung left); it's too soon to write him off but he's probably best watched today.

40,000euros foal, 50,000gns yearling; seventh foal; closely related to 2m hurdle winner Park Paddocks; dam unplaced in France, from classy family; he's the sole newcomer but is in good hands; market could be informative.

Form & Verdict

Sole filly in this field and she was a soundly beaten sixth of nine on last month's debut at Haydock (7f, good); however, she was sent off the 9-4 favourite and the dam's side of her pedigree suggests today's longer trip will be a much better fit; interesting on her second start.
