Leicester novice winner in May was pitched in at the deep end in valuable contests the next twice and struggled before dropping to a seller which she won comfortably as expected. Confidence boosted and leading player despite penalty.
€16,000 yearling by Dark Angel out of a dam placed from 9f to 1m6f. Trainer also runs leading player Beryl The Petal so market will be informative in comparison to that stablemate.
Third in first three races all at this level before latest fourth at Yarmouth. Last three starts all over 7f but hints that this trip will suit better so expecting her to go well once again.
6L third of nine on debut over C&D followed by 2¾L fifth of eight at Leicester. Would need to improve but that still likely so rates one with a decent each-way shout.
Society Rock filly beat just one home when a remote 11th of 12 on debut here last week. Has 12L to make up with Sophia Maria on that run and it seems highly unlikely.
Swiss Spirit filly made some nice headway in the middle part of her debut over C&D after a slow start before seeming to tire. Should improve and could run a good race if starting on terms.
Garswood half-sister to three winners cost £5,200 as a yearling. Speed the overriding theme in her pedigree so trip likely to suit. Trainer one from ten with juveniles this term so market support would be interesting.
Seems to have improved in two starts for current yard after showing next to nothing for Paul Midgley. Third at Catterick at 66/1 followed by second at Thirsk at 33s in a handicap. Stronger race here but should go well.
Plenty to like in this Heeraat filly's debut at Yarmouth at the end of last month. Made nice headway before fading late on in her 2¼L fourth of seven. Should improve for the run and worth serious consideration here.
