In the frame in all three starts so far (6f, good to firm/soft), though his best effort was at this track on debut. Top pilot gets the leg-up here. Drops in trip. Should be thereabouts again.
Well held in first two starts for Ivan Furtado. Much more needed on debut for this trainer.
Has shown very little on both starts so far at Beverley and Catterick. Can only watch at this stage.
Had made a promising start, going close at Hamilton and then improving on that at Haydock. Drops back to this stiff 5f and that could suits. Claims.
20-1 and ran well enough for a long way until fading out of it at Thirsk (6f, good to soft) last month. Should be capable of better this time.
Well held in both starts so far. Drops back to 5f for the first time, which could help, but plenty more needed.
Full-sister to 6f/7f Fibresand winner Lord Oberon, half-sister to winners Medici Banchiere (5f at two) and Vimy Ridge (5f-6f inc at two). Dam 5f winning full-sister to 5f Listed winner Corrybrough. Speedy pedigree. Market check advised.
Well held at both Wolverhampton and Yarmouth last month, though the latter was an improved effort. Shaping as though she will be of more interest in nurseries.
Supported and 7-2 on debut, but beat just one home at Haydock (6f, soft). Conditions a possible excuse there. Now drops to stiff 5f and on a sound surface. Looks stable first string on jockey bookings. Interesting.
