Close third at Epsom on debut; finished only fourth in both subsequent runs but may well start to progress now handicapping and upped to 1m2f (out of a middle-distance winner); still of interest.

Went close at Epsom (7f, soft; 14-1) in a race that worked out well and perhaps unsuited by the fast ground when a little below that level at Leicester; this surface should be fine, as will the step up to 1m; strong contender.

First foal of her connections' Oaks winner Anapurna; has not inherited her mother's class but could well win handicaps judged on her close third behind High Point and Spaceport at Windsor (1m2f, good); in the mix.

Went close in warm little race on handicap debut at Windsor (1m2f, good) last October, then perhaps unsuited by the track when third at Newmarket (1m2f, soft); he's a half-brother to connections' 3yo Listed winner Restorer and his stable won the last running of this race in 2022; on the shortlist.

All six starts on slow turf; solid 2yo campaign and he may have needed last month's reappearance at Doncaster (9l fourth of eight); however, he's not obviously ahead of his mark and is more exposed than many of these.
