Won a 5f novice event here (good to firm) in May and added a Wolverhampton seller (7f) last month. Below par last time out at Ripon and now back in this grade and up in trip. Should give a good account.
General level of form is respectable in the context of this race, though has already been comfortably held in this grade at Newmarket and last time at Ripon. Trip no problem. May ideally want it a bit softer. More needed.
Showed some promise and a bit of improvement on his first three starts, but since well beaten both in a handicap and last time in a novice event. May do better now switched to this grade, but does have a bit to prove.
Held on debut in a Catterick seller (7f, good to firm) and also last time, when improving a bit on that effort in a Lingfield novice contest (1m, AW). Will need further improvement to have a say, even back at this level.
Well held in both starts since being gelded and visor now also applied. That could help, but has a fair bit to prove now dropping into this grade for the first time.
Has run well in a few of these events, winning one at Ripon (6f, good to soft) last time out. The runner-up there won recently, so giving the form a bit of a boost. Should be very competitive.
Has been placed in five of these and also won one at Thirsk (7f, good to firm) in July. Trip and ground ideal and is again likely to be a contender.
16-1 and never involved when last of eight, beaten 27L in a Wolverhampton seller (6f, AW) on debut last month. Blinkers immediately called for. Can only watch.
33-1, green and tailed off on debut in a Lingfield novice event (6f, AW) in July. Can only watch.
Has been off the pace in all three starts in novice/maiden events. Upped in trip for this drop into a seller. Dam won over this trip and beyond, so may be capable of a better effort.
Has not been as effective in handicaps as her form prior to that has suggested that she might be. Has sufficient form to have a say at these weights, however, and enters calculations.
€7,000 foal (not sold £4,500 at two). Half-sister to 7f-1m winner Global Leader. Dam 1m2f winner. Stable 3% with juveniles in past five seasons. Starts in a seller and looks best watched.
