Registered first win on his reappearance at Bath (5½f, good) in May, and has since added victories at Brighton and Ffos Las, the latest nine days ago. Penalty not too harsh given ease of that success.
Remains a maiden, and failed to fire when tried in blinkers at Kempton on latest outing. Gets new headgear here, but she is easy enough to swerve.
Not had much racing, so could do better, but she's yet to improve on a promising debut, and could finish no close than seventh of 8 on handicap debut at Ffos Las. Blinkers reached for now.
Not discredited at Kempton last time, but best form on AW, and while he's well enough treated on pick of his efforts, he is prone to run the odd stinker, and isn't one in whom to place maximum faith.
Best effort this season when fourth in the mud at Chepstow in May, and proved herself on quicker ground when 3¼L third of 7 to Cent Flying at Ffos Las. Place claims if she can back that up, but hardly consistent.
Has twice made the frame in novices over 5f, but failed to step up when only 4½L eighth of 11 to Chloellie on handicap bow at Kempton last time. Harshly treated on balance, for all she's not necessarily fully exposed.
Won off a 6lb lower mark at Lingfield in August, and matched that form when less than 2L fourth in a 6f Kempton handicap a week ago. Not ruled out by any means.
Half-sister to Albany Stakes winner Habaayib. No impact on first two starts, but caught the eye staying on from an unpromising position at Windsor in June, and goes handicapping off a very fair mark. Respected.
Had appeared to be going through the motions, but fitting of blinkers seemed to perk him up when scoring at Wolverhampton on latest start. Headgear not certain to be so effective now, but needs consideration.
Limited promise in qualifying, and didn't appear to be hiding much based on a couple of runs in handicaps here (5f) and at Kempton (7f) of late. Passed over.
Beaten double digits on all four starts to date, and only beat one rival when tried in cheekpieces for handicap debut at Thirsk last time.
Has gone the wrong way since winning a 6f Kempton nursery last year for Mark Johnston, and makes no appeal on 2018 efforts.
Flattered by her fourth in a 7f novice here in July, and has finished last on both subsequent starts. Races from out of the weights here.
