Form & Verdict

0-5 last year (all on turf) but showed hints of promise and she caught the eye when fourth at Southwell (6f, AW) on last month's reappearance, when denied a clear run; could have a part to play.

Form & Verdict

Ran three times on AW last summer, showing some promise on the middle occasion (6f); improvement needed on this handicap and seasonal debut, but he's been gelded since last seen and there's potential in his pedigree; interesting contender, all the more so if well backed.

Three quick runs last summer before being gelded and put away; still in need of the experience on his soft-ground comeback 11 days ago, when clear with one other, and holds obvious claims off the same mark (will be 4lb higher from tomorrow).

Hinted at ability despite finishing tenth of 13 on his Chelmsford debut (6f, Polytrack) last month and was only beaten just over 2l when fifth of nine at Newcastle (6f, Tapeta) six days ago; needs this for a mark, though he has already shown enough to suggest he could figure in this field.

Two 5f wins (good to firm/AW) from final three starts last year; has shown promise on soft/good to soft; has something to prove back up in trip on reappearance, having faded over 6f two starts ago, but he could have more to offer this season and is not ruled out.

Ex-Irish filly who has finished down the field in three runs (5f-7f; AW) for her current yard; mark continues to fall and this drop back in trip could suit but she's now 0-10 and others are more convincing; blinkered for the first time.

Form & Verdict

No threat when sixth last summer on first three starts (6f/5f) and absent since; however, he's been gelded in the interim and his dam was a classy 6f winner; makes handicap debut off a modest mark and he's one to consider in a first-time tongue-tie.

Soundly beaten last autumn on final two starts, but a break may have helped and he won on his nursery debut at Hamilton (6f, good to soft) in July; no surprise if he reappears with a good performance.

Looked on the up when opening his account in 6f Hamilton nursery (on good to soft ground) in July but turned in a below-par fourth on less testing ground there last month; in excellent hands so he remains of interest under these forecast more favourable conditions.
