33-1 and beaten 18½L on debut at Windsor (1m) in June. Can do better for that experience and this longer trip, but looks one to watch again this time.
Sent off at 7-1 for his debut, but was plenty green enough and well beaten over this trip at Pontefract. Should be capable of better this time.
16-1 and never nearer when beaten almost 10L into fourth here on debut over 1m1½f last month. Step up in trip looks positive and with improvement, he couldn't be ruled out of the frame this time.
Dam French 1m2f winner (inc Listed), half-sister to French/US 1m1f-1m4f (inc Grade 2) winner Criticism and useful 1m2f winner Libel Law. Stable in good form and 30% with AW three-year-olds over five seasons. Could make good debut.
Held on both starts in France and bought for just €8,000 last month. Missed an engagement at Nottingham on Tuesday with a vet's certificate. In good hands for British debut and merits a market check.
25-1 and beaten 21L on debut at Newbury (1m2f) in May. Visor now applied and steps up in trip, so check the market in case of any more significant expectations this time.
Made a significant improvement on his debut when second, albeit beaten 12L, at Leicester (1m2f) last time. Step up in trip looks positive, dam won on AW and champion jockey retains the ride. Interesting.
Best effort so far was when 1L second in a 1m1f Goodwood handicap in May, from a mark of 83. Now as good at Haydock last time, but now back at this level, he has to be taken seriously, though needs to perform better than his last visit.
Second twice so far, the best effort he has produced being the latter occasion when beaten ½L at Chepstow (1m4f) in May. Gelded since being well held last time. If he can return to that previous form he has claims here.
Closely related to 6f AW juvenile winner Belvoir Diva, half-brother to winners Merry Banter (5f inc at two) and Concrete Mac (7f). Dam 6f winner at two, sister to 6f Listed winner Paradise Isle. Stamina on sire's side of pedigree but one to watch.
