Losses continue to mount but there was little wrong with her latest effort at Newmarket behind an in form rival. Races off the same mark but still looks vulnerable to a less exposed type.
Has had little chance when beaten by vastly superior rivals on last two starts. Suspicion she may be lacking pace in a finish but this represents her easiest task and rider is 4-14 for the stable.
Largely disappointing since a promising debut and visor now tried for the first time. Hard to fancy unless the market suggests she is back to that earlier level.
Signs of promise on first two runs before disappointing when favourite at Goodwood in a weak race. That event was run at a muddling pace on deteriorating ground and is best forgiven. Has claims on handicap debut in a race as bad as this.
Not seen since landing a weak Newcastle maiden in January. Mark looks cautious but stable in form and rider has an excellent strike rate (10-41) for them.
The subject of mistaken identity when winning a 6f race restricted to two-year-olds at Yarmouth. Has shaped well since without looking likely to win, however has the benefit of a drop in the weights and a rider who is good value for his claim.
Landed her first race at the ninth attempt when scoring in lower grade at Chelmsford. New mark looks fair but she has a further 2f to travel on this stiff track and that raises doubts.
Yet to threaten in six starts on the Flat and new trip could be a problem given she appeared to find a mile too far last time.
Nine-race maiden who has shown little apart from one run at Chepstow which is beginning to look like a one-off. Down in the weights with a good claimer but hard to fancy on current form.
