40-1 or bigger for his first five runs but only 11-2 for the latest at Kempton (6f nursery) and did well to make the frame after starting slowly; possibilities if building on that now he returns to 7f.

Big prices all starts, including his nursery debut at Wolverhampton 23 days ago (7f); wouldn't have won there but he was making some headway in the straight when badly impeded and losing all chance; still has time to do better and the market should be revealing.

Only 2lb higher than when beaten a nose over C&D but it wasn't just the step up to 1m that contributed to a lesser show at Kempton as he hung both ways; bit to prove after that.

Bred to be much better than she's shown so far (dam won a 1m2f Group 1) and her last effort, when a fading sixth of nine over this distance at Chelmsford, was certainly a step in the right direction; dropped 3lb and if she can build on that run she'll be a leading contender.

A bit too keen for her own good when stepped up to 1m at Kempton and was well beaten behind a subsequent Group winner; had previously finished close up in a C&D novice and the winner of that race has also gone on to better things; definite claims off this mark on that middle effort but could be better drawn.
