Encouraging fifth on debut at Haydock (7f, good) last month and again kept on well when third at Epsom (7f, good) last time; the step up to 1m promises to suit and he's a leading contender.

Progressive in four starts last year, winning his last two narrowly including on nursery debut at Kempton (1m, AW); should stay the longer trip on breeding and a market check is advised from a 4lb higher mark after six months off.

Promising fourth of 13 at 9-1 on last month's debut at Beverley (7.4f, good), a performance that can be upgraded as she was caught wide; there can be optimism this half-sister to three winners will improve; one to consider.

Delivered on earlier promise when winning soft-ground novice here (1m) in October and her AW third later that month was perfectly respectable; upped in trip for seasonal/handicap debut and probably has improvement to come.
