Lighlty raced Invincible Spirit filly has raced just twice to date showing signs of some ability on both starts. Faces a tough task though here and may do better once going handicapping.
Exceed and Excel filly made winning debut at Yarmouth last season in 6f maiden, then absent 10 months before beaten odds-on in 6f Wolverhampton AW novice event, staying on to take third. Should be fitter now and looks a major contender.
Three runs last term for David Elsworth, showing ability on two occasions. Joined current yard only last week and may not be far away if fit and ready to do herself justice on seasonal return.
Modest form all starts last season at massive odds. Better on first start this year when third in Thirsk 6f handiap but this is much tougher and is likely to struggle.
€40,000 Fast Company filly whose dam was a listed winner in Italy. Makes her racecourse debut for good yard who can get one ready first time out. Market should given an idea of what is expected.
11,000 guineas daughter of Nathaniel made debut earlier this month beating one home at Wolverhampton AW. Wears eye shield now and on balance looks to have plenty to do to trouble the principals.
US dirt pedigree for this daughter of Animal Kingdom who holds no fancy entries. Making her racecourse bow here for yard that is emerging after a relatively quiet spell. Champion jockey booked.
Plenty of speed in the pedigree of this debutante daughter of Dandy Man. Yard has been among the winner sof late although not known for first time out winners, but market check still advised.
Four runs last term for James Tate showing some ability on a couple of occasions. Joined current yard last month and was well beaten in Doncaster 6f handicap. May find this a tough task.
