Beaten 1L in a bumper on good ground in May but struggled twice since including on Flat debut last time. Probably best watched dropping in distance.
Rated just 39 and finished well held in a selling handicap when making his debut for this stable last month. Others make more appeal.
Well beaten in a point-to-point in May and it was a similar story on Flat debut over 1m2f at Beverley (good) last time out. Others hold stronger claims.
Beaten a head on soft ground over an extended 1m at Nottingham when making his debut last November. Well beaten at Chelmsford on seasonal debut in May but remains of interest back on turf and stepping up in distance.
Finished 4L second over 1m at Thirsk (good-to-firm) when making her debut last month. Well held over 1m1f subsequently and interesting to see how she fares upped in trip.
Struggled when finishing fourth of five on debut at Carlisle (1m3f, good-to-firm) last week. Hood worn that day is retained and she is probably best watched at present.
Finished a close fourth in a 1m novice contest at Newbury (good-to-firm) on debut a month ago. Represents a leading yard and is likely to prove hard to beat upped in trip.
