Not disgraced on her handicap debut after a break of 6 months off the track but quickly dropped 4lb by the handicapper. Stepped up 2f and in a lower grade now but may need some more help yet and looks vulnerable.
Unraced as a two-year-old he's been given three quick runs this year in order to gain a mark and has looked a little awkward on occasions (hood worn the last twice). Still looked green last time; up in trip, blinkers on here for handicap debut.
Winner of a 1m nursery on his last juvenile start (in this grade) be struggled when upped in grade for his seasonal reappearance. Back in a 0-60 last time he fared a little better on the AW but still looks averagely treated.
His non-handicap runs had hinted he would be more at home in low-grade handicaps and so it's proved, twice running better than his final placing over 1m2f. Still not the finished article he has potential for this off this sort of mark.
His three runs in minor events have looked very much a means to an end with handicaps being the end game. He makes his debut in that sphere here with the hood worn for the last two starts removed; remains with potential.
For the first time he hinted at having some ability on his return from a break after showing very little on two juvenile outings. Will strip fitter for that outing over 1m1f and he's a full brother to one who developed into a useful handicapper.
Showed some very modest form prior to making his handicap debut last time and failed to improve for his debut in that sphere. Visor now goes on for the first-time in the hope of extracting some improvement; dropped 4lb from initial mark.
Showed his quirky side when unseating on his handicap debut and consequently had the blinkers applied for his second handicap starts. The headgear appeared to do the trick (showed improved form); won readily and can progress if headgear works again.
Has been tried over a variety of trips since he went handicapping and produced his best effort to date over this trip at Bath last time. Dropped a further 3lb he may well be able to show a little more off this mark (down 7lb from initial mark).
Gained a rather higher mark that was first thought in handicaps on account of her decent third run in a minor event. That rating rather held her back on her handicap debut and she failed to improve; now dropped 4lb from that initial mark.
Tried at up to 1m on turf and AW she's yet to show any ability and even this mark (52) looks rather high on what she's shown so far. Others make more appeal.
Gradually stepped up in trip in three runs in minor events this year she's shown very little so far. Now goes handicapping for the first time off a basement mark.
Five runs so far have offered very little encouragement and she finished last on her only handicap outing so far over 6f. Finished last in a 7f claimer last time out and would be a shock winner here.
