No improvement required to make all in a Brighton maiden latest (7f, good); worse drawn to attack this time than last, but pedigree suggests scope to improve further at 1m, including at 2; readily shortlisted.

Made all in Brighton maiden (7f, good) last month and did likewise in Ripon nursery (1m, good) next time; back in a handicap after going off hard from wide draw in sales race at York a fortnight ago (7f, first run on soft) but not easy to fancy after that heavy defeat.

Form & Verdict

Big personal best when a near-2l fourth at Epsom latest (7f, good to firm) despite not handling the camber; one previous outing over 1m came in a deep novice over a far stiffer track, and this can prove a better fit (yard operating at nearly 30% in 2023 nurseries); cheekpieces added.

Chinned on the line in a Catterick 0-70 nursery last weekend (7f, soft), nevertheless posting another career-best effort; 2lb higher in a better race now, but unsure he needs 1m yet.

Best effort came in a moderately run Doncaster maiden last month (6f, good) despite pulling hard; lesser effort on testing ground back at 5f last time; longer trip a slight concern on handicap debut and will need to settle better.

Form & Verdict

Confirmed the promise of her striking Kempton debut upped to Wolverhampton's 8.6f latest, without necessarily needing to improve; needed nearly all of the trip to get up there, and a generous pace to aim at would enhance her already decent chance on this nursery debut.

Both on breeding and the way she kept on into second over 9.4f at Wolverhampton 26 days ago (first run for over five months), this further rise in trip looks sure to suit; should be involved.

Stepped up from her promising Kempton debut when winning narrowly here (8.6f) last September, but only fourth of seven on handicap/turf debut at Ripon (1m, good) later in month; bred to appreciate the longer trip on her return from 167 days off and respected, especially if backed.

Hasn't hit the line strongly over 1m at Haydock the last twice (good), but taken on up front in the first and had no cover wide out last time; mark looks realistic; yard operating at nearly 20% in nurseries in 2023.

Slowly away and came under early pressure before keeping on for close third on last month's debut here (7f, soft); could have learnt from that experience and the step up to 1m looks the right move; he's one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Achieved more in his second to major improver Lexington Belle at Wolverhampton (8.6f) than the narrow Ffos Las win that followed (1m, good to soft; second won since), though did commit a long way out in the latter; 6lb rise and pace rivalry to contend with here; has left Ivan Furtado.

Had a good opportunity at Ffos Las (1m, good to soft) on final start for Ivan Furtado, as he was ahead of the assessor; came up well short off revised mark at Ripon and appears unlikely to defy top weight.

Progressive form in his first three starts (5f-7f) and he took another major step forward when going very close on his nursery debut at Wolverhampton (8.6f, AW) last week; pulled 6l clear with a 1-3 shot in that race and he's well treated off the same mark (due to be 5lb higher in future) on this return to turf; strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Not really gone on since June's Wetherby fillies' maiden win (5.5f, good to firm), albeit in the face of at least one stiff task; some encouragement on breeding for this first step beyond 6f; cheekpieces go on.
