Debut winner last year she was highly tried in two starts after that (both in Group company). Not disgraced on her return from 7 months off in a minor event on AW debut here; now returns to turf up to 7f for the first time.
Only had the one start when a 250/1 chance on debut at Kempton on the AW showing little and hard to fancy here.
Nicely drawn for his third start having shaped with some promise in his two AW starts over 1m so far. Needs this run for a mark and looks the type to prosper in handicaps.
Beaten twice now on the AW when starting a short priced favourite on both occasions perhaps not having the form chance his odds suggested the second time. Drops back to 7f here and is well drawn on the evidence of the last meeting; may do better.
Has looked backward on both his starts so far at up to 1m with the experience needed on both occasions. He remains open to improvement although he has a tricky draw to cope with here.
Starts have proved a rather mixed bag so far although he's only beaten one rival home in three starts. Has looked rather hard to settle (hood now on first-time) and if he's to show anything it will be in handicaps.
Very green and in blinkers for his debut he hinted at having some ability and may well have a future. Back from a long absence here on his turf debut and likely to need this; one for the longer term.
Little to like about his two starts so far never getting involved over 1m on the AW last time. Needs this run for a handicap mark and faces a tough test here.
Made her debut over 1m and her pedigree looks one that is more built for stamina than speed and this drop to 7f looks far from ideal. Plugged on last time out (not knocked around); a longer-term project.
