Form & Verdict

Easy winner of a C&D novice last August and no less impressive when defying a penalty at Haydock (again on good); only fifth when favourite for a 6f Group 3 at Ayr the final time when reportedly unsuited by the good to soft going; there are concerns on that score here but she retains plenty of potential.

Form & Verdict

Signed off her progressive 3yo campaign by winning a soft-ground 6f Listed event at Newmarket; made a very likeable return back there three weeks ago when the stable was quiet, coming from off the pace to be beaten only 1l by an improving Haggas filly to whom she was conceding 3lb; appeals as one with more to offer.

J: Rossa Ryan

T: Ralph Beckett

Steadily progressive last season, going down narrowly in Listed race at Pontefract (6f, good to firm) and winning similar event over C&D (soft) on her final start; carries a penalty but still has solid form claims; leading contender if ready to roll after seven months off.

On the up this season, winning a 6f handicap at Nottingham in June and turning in a career best when second of 11 in a Pontefract Listed event in August; not so good at Ayr (5.5f, good to soft) three weeks ago; another career best required to win.

Form & Verdict

Won his novice over C&D last August by nearly 10l (on good) and then went close in the Group 2 Mill Reef (heavy); shaped better than the bare result when reappearing in the Greenham, but he dropped out to be last in a Listed race on return to Newbury and cheekpieces are now added only a week later.

Form & Verdict

Very progressive 3yo sprinter two years ago, winning two handicaps and a Listed race before trying his luck in Group 1s (not disgraced); conditions won't faze him on this belated return to action but it's still a big ask after so long out and his usual hood is missing; has been gelded.

Form & Verdict

Has flashes of very smart form at Group/Listed level, mostly over 5f; off since two below-par runs in Dubai during the winter and ground slower than good would be a further concern; all in all, there are risks attached.

Form & Verdict

Looked a potential superstar when winning Newbury's Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes as a juvenile but his 3yo season didn't go to plan, finishing midfield in the 2,000 Guineas and then last in the 6f Commonwealth Cup; however, connections retain high hopes for him and could yet tap back into all that juvenile promise.

T: Roger Varian

Midfield (below par) in the 2,000 Guineas on sole run this season, appearing to confirm that he's a Commonwealth Cup prospect as opposed to a potential miler; very promising 6f colt (on good/firmer) last term, recording form figures of 211 that culminated in an impressive performance in the Mill Reef at Newbury; retains major potential and looks an exciting contender back down in trip; judged on 2yo evidence, he could easily develop into a top performer at this distance.

Narrowly denied on debut but breezed home at Haydock (good to firm) next time and did it almost as easily when upped in class for the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury (good) later in September; they were all over 6f but there was plenty about the way he did it which suggested he will stay further; exciting prospect.
