In depth

Verdict

Shared Equity, Elusive George and Jaeger Train all boast similar profiles, each having scored in sprint maidens when last seen, and there's very little between them on official ratings. The last-named makes fractionally greater appeal of the trio but if HEROIQUE is ready to go first time up for Tim Easterby, she could be good enough to trump the three of them. She progressed well over the autumn months of her juvenile campaign, concluding with a laudable effort in a Newbury nursery. She was put up a couple of pounds for that effort but a mark of 72 looks a feasible starting point for her three-year-old campaign. Steele Ranger is dropped significantly in grade and is worth keeping an eye on too.
