Opened his account in similar company last time when shaping as though he was feeling the ground. Conditions forecast to be less quick here and the champion jockey keeps the ride.
Beat little on debut but had plenty left in the tank. Struggled on softer ground in higher grade next time but this is much easier and the yard have been going well.
Canford Cliffs gelding who was down the field on Yarmouth debut. That was a more competitive race than this and he finished close enough to earn respect.
Plenty of promise on his Newbury debut and yard in form yard are 10-29 with this age group here. Rider has a good strike rate for them and a career 100 points level stakes profit.
Placed in two AW maidens but they were not strong contests and others in this have achieved a lot more.
Gelded son of Thewayyourare who fetched €12,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to four winners over a variety of distances. No show on debut and, although the yard's horses improve for a run, he needs to find an awful lot.
Has improved with each outing and shaped as though he was ready to move up to this trip last time. Has a few pounds to find with the topweight based on official ratings but the yard's horses are coming on for a run.
Has made modest progress in his three starts but promises better now stepping up in trip and having been short of daylight last time. Stable are 4-10 with this age group here.
Modest achievement last time when conditions would have ben too soft. More obvious claims on his debut effort when shaping better than his final position suggests, but he still looks a more likely type for a handicap.
Half-brother to four winners and made a pleasing debut at Newmarket during Craven week. Does not have a great deal of improvement to find in order to be a contender.
