Sea The Stars filly who attracted support into 8-1 at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in June and shaped with promise before finishing fourth of nine; returns after six months off but she's in very good hands and has claims if she can build on that debut run.

Narrow winner of a Worcester bumper (2m, good) in September but disappointing on his hurdling debut at Doncaster (remote eighth of nine) last month; has bit to prove again after that and this looks a tough starting point on the Flat.

Sister to two useful winners at up to 1m6f; didn't live up to market expectations in sole run for the Gosdens last November but she showed plenty of promise when runner-up at Newcastle (1m4f, AW) on her stable debut last month; pulled 8l clear with the winner in that race and that form puts her firmly in the picture here.
