Form & Verdict

Was inconsistent but occasionally competitive in handicaps until breaking her duck at the tenth attempt at Newcastle (12.5f, Tapeta) in September; having gone up 6lb she was favourite in an amateurs' race back over that same C&D latest but was well below par; bit to prove now.

Form & Verdict

C&D (0-70) and 2m (0-55) course winner during the autumn; led into the home straight before hanging badly left here (2m) latest but that was still a good effort and it would be no surprise if she produced another bold show back down in trip.

Solid record on this track for new yard, winning two from five starts (at 1m6f and 2m) and going down only narrowly to one who is unexposed as a stayer last time out; looks good for another big run.

On the up for this yard, winning over 1m6f here in September and adding a C&D event to her tally 24 days ago; that form boosted by the second since; 4lb rise in deeper company today but unexposed at 2m and comes into the reckoning.

Form & Verdict

Has won three times on AW surfaces over 1m4f this year, the latest at Kempton where cheekpieces were swapped for a first-time visor and he won a 0-60 going away; up 5lb but he has backed up a win before and can go well again.

Form & Verdict

Triple 1m2f course winner; stays 1m4f; appears best when able to dominate and led for much of the way at Wolverhampton latest (1m4f, Tapeta) before weakening when headed; drops 2lb and in grade this time, while also going up in trip (half-brother to a 1m5f winner); not ruled out.

His three wins have come over 1m2f at Chelmsford but he ran well for a long way over 1m6f there last time, beaten under 3l; now 5lb lower than for his last success and he could make a bold bid on drop back in trip.
