Posted a pleasing effort in defeat at Thirsk in July (6f, good to firm) before meeting trouble in running when switched to the AW next time; opening nursery mark far from a gift, but is respected nevertheless.

Found an ideal opportunity to score on his second start at Chepstow in June (6f, good), and whilst that wasn't the strongest of contests he displayed a willing attitude. Faced a stiff task latest (penalised); better suited by switching to a nursery.

Raced exclusively over 5f so far, but his dam was a winner over this trip, and he's a half-brother to the 1m1f scorer Spray The Sea, so this extra furlong should help on nursery debut.

Didn't need to improve to take a small field affair on rattling quick ground at Bath last month (5f), but arrives in nursery company having shown what he's capable of achieving; first attempt at 6f (bred to stay).

Her trainer is also represented by Balata Bay, so this 75,000gns yearling is potentially the second string; drops in grade from her nursery debut fifth of six at York (5f), but needs to show more heading back up in trip.

Finished three places behind Mister Dependable when finishing fifth at Thirsk (6f) in July, before being well outclassed in the Newbury Super Sprint Stakes latest (24 of 25); makes his nursery debut at a realistic level.

Improved efforts in his last couple of starts, despite no necessarily fully staying 7f at Yarmouth last month (fifth of 12); cheekpieces applied for nursery debut, and well worth a check for any signs of market confidence.

Seemingly regressed since his debut third to Kuwait Station (6f, Ripon), and needs to get his career back on track on nursery debut. However, it's still fairly early days, and this trainer has his string in excellent order at present.

Betting

Forecast

Slowmo (13/8), Oona (9/2), Mohogany (6/1), Balata Bay (7/1), I'm Billy Murphy (17/2), Mark's Choice (14/1), Mister Dependable (14/1), Primeiro Boy (16/1)

Verdict

A difficult to solve nursery in which a number of the runners are respected. Mister Dependable hasn't been allocated the most lenient of opening handicap marks, but he had excuses latest and posted a pleasing effort in defeat at Thirsk prior. Slowmo isn't necessarily progressing quickly, but he's a previous winner, as is the selection BALATA BAY. His trainer Richard Hannon is doubly represented (also saddles Oona), but this 6f Chepstow winner is favoured on his nursery debut after facing an impossible task trying to give 6lb (penalised) to James Street at Doncaster last month.
