Form & Verdict

Big improvement when forging clear on nursery debut at Wolverhampton (7f, AW) in October; never involved at Doncaster (1m, soft) on his return but he made some late headway and shaped as though he needed the run; still has potential after only five starts and he's not ruled out.

Took a big step forward on his handicap debut when getting off the mark at Wolverhampton (7f) in October; hiked up 10lb but scored readily there and since gelded so this son of Dark Angel is very much one to consider.

Six-race maiden who has not really progressed and was in rear at Newmarket (7f, good; 10-1) on her return last month; dropped 2lb but not sure this new trip will suit on pedigree and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Placed in four of his six 2yo runs and he returned after a gelding operation with a win in a Beverley handicap (7.4f, soft) two weeks ago; up 3lb for that very narrow success but he made virtually all to hold off a clear second and is respected back up in trip.

Awarded a 7f Newcastle nursery in final 2yo run but he failed to beat a rival at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) on his return last month; has bit to prove again after that heavy defeat and his best efforts have been on Tapeta.

Form & Verdict

Close up in 1m handicaps in final two runs for Charlie Hills and he had an excuse when upped to 1m3f on stable debut at Kempton last month; could go well back in trip but he's now 0-7 and others are more persuasive.

Promising third in Thurles maiden (1m, soft) in final 2yo run for Joseph O'Brien; changed hands for 21,000gns and was gelded after that; well-backed on stable debut at Bath (1m, good) last month and he showed a good attitude to deny the favourite; needs more now switched to a handicap but he's still unexposed and his confidence should be boosted after that brave win.

Form & Verdict

Clear promise in her first two runs this winter before landing the odds in Wolverhampton maiden (8.6f) in February; now switches to turf but her useful dam was progressive in this sphere and she looks interesting on handicap debut; had win op after her last run.

210,000gns yearling; sent off 33-1 but showed promise when fifth of 13 on her Kempton debut (1m, Polytrack) last month; that is by some way the best form on show here and her pedigree suggests the stiffer track should suit.
