Encouraging signs on turf last year on first three starts and got off the mark on reappearance in Newcastle novice (1m, AW) in February; goes handicapping off a fair mark and with improvement possible; not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten at Hamilton (1m1f) last month on good ground that should have been fine; however, prior to that he was second to a handicap blot at Doncaster (1m, soft) and could be in the mix if bouncing back to form.

Form & Verdict

Made virtually all to win big-field novice on turf/seasonal debut at Wetherby (7f, good) in June; her attractive pedigree suggests she'll be fine now upped to 1m and she has plenty of potential off her opening mark.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in first-time cheekpieces (retained since) in Nottingham handicap (1m, good to firm) last month then got off the mark in Beverley maiden (1m, good to firm; odds-on); unraced on slow ground; he's 4lb higher than two starts ago but was behind a progressive winner and could be involved.

Form & Verdict

Two-time French winner (5.5f/7.5f) who has posted fair performances in defeat on his first two runs for this yard; however, he needs to find something extra if he's to come out on top today.

Form & Verdict

Early days with this yard and he was second at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) last Wednesday in a first-time visor (now left off); however, he was no match for the winner and is now 0-17 since making a winning debut last June; needs a bigger performance now back up in grade.

OR: 70

Form & Verdict

Took a big step forward when winning cosily on handicap debut at Redcar (7f, good to firm) in May; disappointing at Thirsk (7f, good to soft) and will have something to prove if slow ground prevails, but he retains potential and is not discounted in first-time cheekpieces.

Went close on handicap debut at Redcar (7f, good to firm) last month and drew clear for convincing win at Newcastle (7f, AW) six days later; unproven on slow ground; could continue to improve now upped to 1m; contender.

Handicap newcomer who has been disappointing the last twice, but he kept on for a good second on his debut at Thirsk (6f, good) last August and could be a contender if tapping back into that promise; watch the betting.

9st 4lb

J: Billy Garritty

T: Richard Fahey

Made a hugely encouraging start to his career when keeping on under an educational ride for second at Thirsk three weeks ago, form boosted by the winner on Tuesday (6f, good); he's likely to stay further in time but still a key player with that initial run behind him.
