Fair 3L fourth of eight in handicap at Brighton over the trip in April on good to firm ground. Should be in the mix again, though yet to score on turf (0-13).
Fastnet Rock filly has shown enough in three maidens so far to merit a second look now turning her focus to handicaps. Market check suggested.
Out of form in six starts since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result but probably best watched at present.
Winner over 1m2f at Chelmsford in December, easily enough fended off last month at Sandown (1m2f, good) on return from short break. May be fitter now and on a fair make if doing himself justice.
Course winner over further last summer, still 6lb above that mark but held every chance last month at Brighton (1m4f, good to form) only to find little in closing stages. Not out of this back down in distance.
Has three wins in eight starts on the AW circuit here this year, including over this trip in April on penultimate start. Held off this mark last time, may need to eke out some more now reverting to turf.
Useful second of seven in handicap at Yarmouth over similar trip 17 days ago on good to firm ground sporting first-time cheekpieces (retained) behind a thriving rival. Should be capable of challenging again.
No win since 2016 and well below standard needed over this trip at Sandown (1m2f, soft) 16 days ago. Place claims if bouncing back perhaps.
