Overcame inexperience to make a winning debut at Chelmsford (7f) in early July, and better than the bare result on her next start on turf at Newmarket; switch back to the AW looks to be a shrewd move and she sets the standard today.
Beaten favourite at Yarmouth (7f) on his latest start (third), but acquitted himself well enough there and the fourth placed horse Beryl The Petal has won since; shortlist material on AW debut.
Started at big prices on both outings (6f), and fair to say that although he's shown some speed, he doesn't look to possess an abundance of ability; stamina to prove over a new trip; unlikely.
Not managed to finish in front of too many rivals so far (6f), and looks to have a mountain to climb in order to be competitive here on his first attempt over 7f; nurseries likely far more suitable.
Unraced first foal from a 1m-1m2f winning dam (Yojojo); cost just £800 as a yearling; this is likely to rate as an introduction to her racing education and unlikely to figure prominently against stronger looking rivals.
No obvious promise so far (7f) at significant odds, and safely held by today's rival Lonely Boy on Yarmouth form from last month; makes no appeal whatsoever.
Slowly finding her feet, and this step up in trip looks to be a positive move (bred to stay further); couldn't be entirely dismissed on the evidence of last week's Windsor effort (fifth of 14), but nurseries surely await after today.
