0-5; two promising efforts (over 1m2f) switched to handicap level, finishing second at Nottingham then fifth at Salisbury where she finished well from a difficult position; remains open to further progress and warrants respect off unaltered mark.

Value for more than his narrow winning margin at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) on seasonal debut, having done well considering he pulled hard and met traffic issues; has plenty of 1m4f form and may remain competitive back up just 1lb.

T: T J Kent

Back off the same mark as when winning at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) early last year, the last time he contested a Class 4 on the AW; has something to prove back from 259 days off, though.

Form & Verdict

0-5; one of the lesser lights at the Gosden yard last year but showed some ability; ran encouragingly in Leicester handicap (1m) on stable/seasonal debut, while shaping as if this return to 1m2f will suit; may improve with that outing under his belt; interesting.

Savanna King

9st 2lb

J: Cieren Fallon

T: John & Thady Gosden

Similar form in three races from 1m-1m4f, short of room when fourth of nine in Salisbury maiden last time; this trip could be his optimum and he probably still has untapped potential; not dismissed lightly.

5/2

Form: 542139 D

W: 9st 3lb

3 yo Colt

OR: 73

Form & Verdict

Comfortably beat his rivals in 1m2f maiden handicap at Pontefract; form has dipped sharply in his two runs since, leaving him with something to prove off an unchanged mark (still 6lb higher than for his win).
