Successful over this trip on debut at Lingfield in March but disappointed at Newmarket (1m2f, good) in first time cheekpieces (retained) subsequently. Return to this trip in his favour.
Made a winning debut in a 1m2f novice contest at Newcastle earlier this month. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up in distance.
Slowly away but caught the eye with some decent late progress when finishing sixth on debut at Windsor (1m2f, good) three weeks ago. One to note stepping up in trip.
Well held in two starts in maiden company so far including over 1m3f at Newbury (good-to-soft) last time. Others make more appeal.
Struggled in two outings to date including over this distance on debut last month. Others have a more obvious chance in this contest.
Beaten 14L into third over this trip on debut at Ripon (soft) last month and finished runner-up in a three runner contest subsequently. Interesting runner here.
Improved effort in finishing runner-up at Chelmsford on his first try over 1m2f earlier this month. Shapes as if this trip will suit.
Well beaten in two starts at two and probably best watched stepping up markedly in trip on her seasonal debut.
