150-1 and an 89L last of nine on debut over 1m here at the Craven Meeting. Cannot be recommended on that evidence.

25-1 and never a threat on his debut when a 22L thirteenth of 20 at Newbury (1m3f, good to soft) last month. Top pilot now gets the leg up and it would be no surprise to see a significantly better effort this time.

50-1 and made little impression on debut at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm, beaten 36L) last month. Has lots of improving to do to get competitive this time.

85,000gns yearling. Sixth foal. Half-brother to winners Devdas (1m at two) and Allegria (1m3½f-1m4½f), out of a 6f winner. Interesting newcomer who should be capable of a decent debut.

Eighth foal. Half-brother to winners Promising Lead (7f-1m2f inc. Group 1), Visit (6f/7f inc. at two/Group 3), Pressure Point (1m4f-1m5½f) and Revered (7f at two). Dam a 1m2f-1m6f½f winner (inc. Listed). Lovely pedigree. Market check suggested.

Ran green but shaped with promise on debut when a 66-1 fifth of 13 (beaten 7½L) at Kempton (1m2f, AW) in November. May need this reappearance after a break, but improvement not ruled out.

14-1 when just 2¼L behind the winner in fourth of six on debut at Wolverhampton (1m1½f, AW) last month That was a promising start and it would be no surprise to see him even more closely involved this time.

$155,000 foal, $190,000 yearling. Fourth foal, half-brother to two winners, the better being Eskenformoney (US 1m/1m½f Grade 3), out of US 6f dirt winner. Market check suggested on debut.

€17,000 foal. Sixth foal, half-brother to winners Elk (1m2f Listed) and Wedding March (1m at two), out of 1m2f-1m3f winner (inc. Group 2). Stable is in good form, though its three-year-olds are yet to fully fire. Couldn't rule him out on debut.

A reasonable debut effort was bettered when he stepped up to 1m2f at Chelmsford last time and although he was a beaten favourite there, there looked to be more to come. Entitled to make short-lists with that in mind.

Has been progressing nicely despite not yet winning and came closest to doing so when beaten just ½L at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) last month. Could come on for that run, the fitting of headgear and the step up in trip. Considered.

Improved for her Southwell debut when just headed close to the line at Beverley (1m2f, good to firm) last week. That looked very solid form in the context of this race and she should be thereabouts once again.

Betting

Forecast

Stylehunter (5/2), Prabeni (11/4), Crystal King (7/2), Guild (7/1), Burgonet (10/1), Laughing Stranger (14/1), Harbour Breeze (33/1), Moasher (50/1), Mugatoo (66/1), Drifting Star (66/1), Das Kapital (250/1), Boxatricks (250/1)

Verdict

Burgonet did all but win at Beverley last week and has to enter calculations again here, but in an open heat STYLEHUNTER is the suggestion. John Gosden's reaches for cheek pieces for his colt, who has been going the right way and could be better for his reappearance run and may also benefit from this step up in trip. Laughing Stranger and Prabeni are others that can't be ruled out, while newcomers worth market checks look to be Mugatoo, Moasher, Drifting Star and Guild.
