Has won on all types of ground on turf, so no reason why he can't adapt to this surface on his AW debut. Began turf season well at Doncaster in April, but form has dipped since. Drops in grade now and a better effort would not surprise.
Scored over C&D in April, when 4lb lower. Has run to a similar level of form on his last two starts at Kempton, both from 1lb higher. More needed, but has each-way claims.
Placed over 6f in a Lingfield novice event in May. Initial mark looked stiff enough last time out, though drop back to the minimum trip may also have been partially responsible for his 13½L defeat. 3lb drop and back up in trip here. Interesting.
C&D scorer in May from 7lb lower, and backed that up with a turf success at Ayr next time, after a 3lb rise. Has been at a similar level of form from this mark on both starts since. Needs a bit of improvement, but should be in the mix.
Scored over this trip at Lingfield in February, from 3lb lower and had been improving with each run up to then. Unable to maintain that in a Newmarket handicap on return from a break in May. Needs to bounce back.
Her two wins came back-to-back here over C&D and then at Lingfield (1m) in March, the latter from 2lb lower. Went close back here from this mark next time. Not always consistent, but has claims here if able to produce her best.
Best effort so far was on handicap debut at Yarmouth last month (7f, good to firm), his first start after wind surgery. Was below that level last time. Looks in need of a further drop in the handicap on that early evidence.
0-9 so far. Closest he has come to winning was over C&D in November, when beaten a neck from 2lb lower. Has been a little bit in-and-out in recent runs, but would be worth shortlisting if at his best.
Made a promising debut at Ascot (6f, soft) in September, but has been well below that level in two subsequent runs. Makes handicap debut from a mark that looks fair based on that first run and with stable in form she could go well.
