Showed best form to date when finishing second at Doncaster (good) upped to this trip last time. Nudged up 1lb and needs to improve a bit more for win purposes.
Big prices and moderate efforts in three starts in novice events at the back-end of last year. He is bred for middle distances so this step up in trip is very much in favour for handicap debut. Yard does particularly well with this type and a player
A maiden after five starts but has run two fair races since moving into handicaps. Has looked a bit one paced so this step up in trip in first time blinkers may eek out a bit more and not discounted.
Disappointing effort when upped to 1m2f for handicap debut at Chepstow (good to firm) two weeks ago. Didn't shape there like this step up in trip is an obvious move, but switch back to Aw may help and another with a squeak.
Helmet filly who has started at big prices since a fair third placed effort at Kempton in August (1m), but appears vulnerable now upped to this trip.
Struggled off this mark and upped to this trip at Lingfield (AW) four weeks ago. Rider claims a handy 3lb but others are preferred here.
Huge prices and very little shown in maiden/minor events so far. Blinkers go on for handicap debut but major improvement needed all the same to be involved.
