French-bred gelding who was bought for £50,000 as a two-year-old at the Ascot breeze-up sales but never ran at that age. Winning debut at Windsor last month and can be expected to improve. Has to concede weight all round, which is a negative.
Kodiac colt who is closely related to a couple of winning sprinters. Nice enough pedigree and jockey booking is a positive one, but stable is on the cold list and this debut run may well be needed
Gelded son of Monsieur Bond, who is a half-brother to three winners from 7f to 2m. Likely to find this trip too sharp on his racecourse bow.
Son of stable's Orientor and already gelded. Slowly away when last of eight on debut at Hamilton and needs to take a significant step forward.
Camacho half-brother to six winners including Caulfield Cup winner All The Good. Last of 13 on debut over 7f at Newcastle and cannot be fancied on that evidence, especially over this shorter distance.
Not disgraced on both starts at Wolverhampton and Redcar. Drops in trip and qualifies for a handicap mark after this outing.
Third foal by Piccolo out of multiple 6f-1m1f AW winner The City Kid. Finished ahead of stable companion Jeffrey Harris on debut, but cut little ice and can only be watched.
Improved on debut run to finish 1L third to Sharp Style at Windsor. Has a 7lb pull and has to be firmly in the mix.
Needed debut run and shaped much better when second of five in a small race at Bath. Has a bit to find, but seems to be going the right way.
Well behind Sharp Style at Windsor on the latest of his three starts. In good hands, but may fare better when switched to handicaps.

The Bull (SP), Lady Flyte (SP), Penwood (SP), Don't Be Surprised (SP), Tidal Surge (SP), Sparkalex (SP), Red Hot Fusion (SP), Sharp Style (SP), Darling Darcy (SP), Jeffrey Harris (SP)
