Form & Verdict

Appreciated the longer trip when off the mark at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) in December and followed up over this C&D the following month, but he became outpaced at a vital stage when third of five under his penalty back here six days ago; 3lb lower and a player if getting a better pace to aim at.

Has not looked back since upped to 1m, springing a 28-1 surprise at Southwell in December and following up over C&D 11 days ago; 6lb penalty for that win leaves him 3lb badly in but he did well in a steadily run event and the best could still be to come.

Improved when switched to nurseries last summer (record 2212), his latest effort when beaten a head here (1m2f) in September; no problem with the return to this trip and the market should be informative now returning from 135 days off.

J: Connor Murtagh

T: Adrian Nicholls

Best efforts have been when racing prominently; broke his duck when comfortably landing a Musselburgh nursery (1m, good to soft) latest, for which he is up 4lb; has to prove himself at this new trip (half-brother an Italian 9.5f winner) and will probably need some improvement to follow up.

Form & Verdict

The most exposed in the field with this his 13th start, but he likes it here with two wins (7f/1m) in the autumn and narrow defeats in his last two outings; up another 1lb, but his consistency means that he can't be left out of calculations.

Not much in his first three starts and although he showed a bit more when fifth of 12 on handicap debut here (7f) 12 days ago, still finished 5l behind Likeashadow; the extra furlong should suit on pedigree, but more is needed.

Fourth in all starts last year including here (7f), but he didn't really progress; up a furlong on this return from six months off having been gelded since last seen; more needed, though market confidence would be interesting.

Seems to be heading in the right direction and put in a good front-running shift when fourth of seven in Newcastle maiden (7f, AW) in June; back on turf for today's nursery debut; no surprise if he features.

Form & Verdict

Made a successful stable debut in a Chelmsford maiden (6f, Polytrack) last summer, but her form regressed towards the end of the campaign; not beaten far on her return from 109 days off at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) last month and she should stay the extra furlong, but others make greater appeal.

0-6 in Ireland last year for John McConnell; sold for 1,000gns in December; has poor claims on balance of form and, upped markedly in distance, looks a doubtful stayer on breeding.

First of her two nursery outings was respectable, fifth of 11 at Gowran despite meeting some trouble in running; hard to fancy after moderate Galway run, though perhaps the addition of a tongue-tie will help.
