Won over 6f at Yarmouth in April, and has improved in defeat since, with latest second of 9 to Bella Ferrari at same course last time a career best. Leading contender given solid profile.
Improved on handicap debut at Newbury in April, and very interesting on that effort, but he has found little for pressure in two starts since, and has questions to answer, for all this is an easier task.
Half-sister to connections' smart 6f winner Aeolus, and improved making handicap debut over this trip when 2¼L second of 6 to Sweet Pursuit at Ffos Las. Can do better still, and shortlisted.
Improved on sole AW run last year when runner-up in a couple of 6f novice events in June/July, both on fast turf. Little bit more required now handicapping, but is unexposed and likely to progress again.
Belatedly off the mark in an uncompetitive maiden at Brighton last month, but readily held back in a handicap there next time, and looking exposed now.
Has failed to justify a £170,000 price tag but opened her account at Wolverhampton in December and won again at Chelmsford in February. Not fired in two turf runs since a break, though, including with a hood fitted last time.
Best efforts on a sound surface, and won at Brighton (6f, good) in June. Similar form in defeat since, finishing a respectable 3¾L fourth of 8 to Charming Guest at Epsom last time. More required now.
Has improved with each start in qualifying, and did well when neck second of 7 to The Establishment in a 6f maiden at Chepstow last time, with the pair well clear. Opening mark looks very fair.
Taken time to refind form after coming back from a break in June, but ran well when 1¾L third of 8 to Indian Tygress in a C&D handicap last time, and not out of this if she can build on that.
Record is patchy, but belatedly off the mark in a 6f AW handicap at Wolverhampton last time under this rider. Cheekpieces worn for first time there are retained, but now 7lb higher and in better class, so must improve.
