Form & Verdict

Best effort for James Ferguson when beaten half a length into second of seven in first-time cheekpieces (now removed) at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) in October; changed hands for 30,000gns soon afterwards and makes his debut for his new yard after three months off having been gelded in the meantime; market may be informative.

Made a winning stable debut at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) last month but he had the run of things in that tactical race and wasn't as good in his return visit 17 days ago; bit to prove again after that and he looks fairly exposed now.

Made a winning stable debut when given a well-judged ride from the front over C&D two weeks ago; the runner-up has gone close since but he'll need another step forward if he's to follow up.

Form & Verdict

Won twice here (7f/1m) in the autumn and has performed consistently since, including when beaten just over a length into fourth of seven behind Polly The Rocket over 7f here (first-time cheekpieces, now removed) 11 days ago; 6lb better off with that rival and the return to this trip should suit; respected.

Form & Verdict

Showed some ability in his first three starts including here, but improved for the longer trip when making a successful handicap debut at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) nine days ago; just 1lb wrong under his penalty and a major player with the possibility of further improvement.

Improved form upped to 1m on handicap debut when scoring at Kempton last month; held at odds-on behind the front-running Tasmanian Legend at Newcastle last time but that was in a tactical race and he still has potential; respected with cheekpieces added.

Made a winning debut for Richard Hannon at Salisbury (6f, good) last August, but out of the frame in five starts since including when over 3l behind Wait And Hope at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) nine days ago (beaten when hampered); 6lb pull not enough to tempt.

Form & Verdict

Battled on well to make it ninth-time lucky over 7f here 11 days ago; 4lb wrong under her penalty and still to prove she wants this far, but her course record reads 331 so she has to be taken seriously, especially if benefiting from the hood.
