Showed his first piece of form when 9½L fifth of 11 to Meringue (second and fourth run in 6:00 race) in a C&D novice last time when tried in a visor. Opening mark no gimme on that evidence, and needs to step up again.
Hasn't achieved a great deal in three runs at up to 7f, but better than the bare result when fourth at Wolverhampton last time, and should be more competitive now handicapping at a lowly level. Top jockey booked, which increases confidence.
Made a fairly promising start when fourth at Yarmouth in July, but hasn't yet gone on from that. All her runs have come over 6f, though, and every chance she will do better granted more of a test.
Represents a powerful yard, and showed early promise, but he has gone backwards in nurseries of late, and blinkers reached for after a woeful effort at Chelmsford last time. Needs to bounce back, for all he's become well treated.
Well held in a trio of runs at around 7f, but has kept fairly good company, and had excuses when racing freely in front at Ffos Las on latest outing. Should be much more competitive at this level.
Failed to beat a rival on first two starts, and didn't do much better last time in truth, but wasn't beaten up, and possible she will show more now handicapping.
By a July Cup winner out of a staying maiden, and has shown only limited ability in three qualifying runs at up to 1m. Blinkered for handicap debut, which might help, but wide draw won't.
Best effort when third in a Thirsk seller in July, but had excuses on nursery bow after a break at Newcastle (7f), looking to need the outing. Visored now, and should do better.
Has found a little improvement in 7f nurseries the last twice, again looking as if in need of 1m and more when third at Lingfield last time. Expected to progress again up in trip.
Beaten a minimum of 8L on all starts to date, including when down the field on nursery debut over 7f here last time. No appeal.
No solid form to date, his second place at Brighton last time seeing him beaten a whopping 16L in a race where the favourite was pulled up injured.
Looks of no account on evidence of five runs to date, finishing well beaten in nurseries on last two.
