Well beaten in three maiden races and a similar story in an amateur riders contest over 7f at Leicester (soft) on handicap debut last time out. Others make more appeal here.
Equiano colt makes debut in this, yard has had 27 runners at the track over the previous 12 months with only one placed effort to report. Trip should be fine on breeding.
Not disgraced in pair of AW maidens at around this trip, first attempt on turf and doesn't have all that much to find to get competitive.
Beaten 2¼L over this trip at Lingfield on debut (good to soft), didn't appear to get home since over a mile at Ripon and could have more to offer now back down in trip.
Best effort of nine-race career to date came over C&D on penultimate outing, going down just over 1L in third. Since dropped in trip on good to firm at Brighton which may not have helped. Interesting back here over 6f.
Hasn't progressed in four runs so far, best efforts came early on over this trip so some hope the drop back can elicit better, thought may be one for handicaps.
Just two runs so far, separated by 137 days, there was some promise in Newbury debut over 7f in April (beaten 10L) and then attempted to make all over 6f on AW at Kempton a fortnight ago, fading late on. Scope to do better.
Fastnet Rock filly who is closely related to 6f/7f winner Triple Chocolate and also has plenty speed in pedigree, eyecatcher on debut last month at Doncaster staying on for third, big chance if coming on for that effort.
