Dual bumper winner in 2015 but well held in both starts on the flat over C&D this spring and others make more appeal.
Improving with racing and off the mark at the third attempt when successful over 1m at Chelmsford on AW debut last time. One to note returning to turf.
Broke his maiden when successful over 1m at Southwell last time. Interesting to see how he fares on his first outing on turf.
Finished runner-up in a four runner bumper in March and ran respectably when 21L fifth at Redcar (1m, good-to-firm) on Flat debut last time. More needed if she's to take this.
Wore a visor (absent here) when finishing ninth on debut at Chelmsford (1m) last month. Probably best watched at present.
Beat just two rivals home in a 15 runner novice contest at Doncaster (good-to-firm) over this trip on debut recently. Needs to step up markedly to figure in this contest.
Signs of promise in two starts so far most recently when fifth over an extended 7f at Beverley (good-to-firm) a fortnight ago. Interesting to see how he performs in this.
Unraced home-bred daughter of Declaration Of War out of a mare who is a half-sister to a couple of useful performers. Market support would be interesting on racecourse debut.
Well held in two starts most recently over 7f on seasonal debut at Carlisle (7f, good-to-firm) last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Well beaten at big prices on both outings this spring. Breeding suggests she will appreciate further in time. More needed here.
