Ran her best race when runner-up on nursery bow at Thirsk in July, but her form is very patchy, and she's been well beaten twice since. Others preferred, even if she can bounce back now.
Has been catching the eye over shorter, and again finished with running left over 5f at Wolverhampton last time. Stiffer test should suit now handicapping, and one for the shortlist in a modest affair.
Every chance on the form of her second on nursery debut at Thirsk in August, but disappointing since, and that run is something of a standout on her overall record.
Ran his best race to date in first nursery try at Nottingham in August when second behind a ready winner. Matched that when fifth of 9 at Yarmouth last time, but seems to have reached his limit on that evidence.
Improved on earlier efforts when fourth of 10 to Lady Madison in a 6f novice at Chelmsford last time. Might have more to offer, for all the handicapper has erred on side of caution with his opening mark.
Slade Power half-sister to eight winners. Fared better than previously when fourth at Hamilton on penultimate start, but ran badly in a Lingfield nursery (AW debut) last time, and looks a risky proposition now.
Promise on second start at Ripon (6f, good to firm) in August, and probably found soft ground against her last time. Did too much in front at Leicester on recent nursery debut, and not one to give up on yet.
Thriving since sent into handicaps, and gained second win when scoring in a big field event at Redcar (6f, good) late last month. Climbing the weights, but has the winning habit, and needs serious consideration.
Excuses on penultimate start when out of the weights, and back on track when third of 9 to Jordan Electrics in a 5f nursery at Musselburgh last time. Return to this trip will help, and she's clearly on a workable mark.
Poor form until seeming to improve markedly in first-time blinkers when sixth in a novice auction at Redcar last month, but that form isn't the most solid, and he needs to prove he can back it up now handicapping.
Has run respectably on last couple of starts with blinkers fitted, making late headway when fourth of 9 to Magical Spirit in novice auction event at Beverley (5f) last time. Return to 6f in his favour, and unexposed.
Improved to finish third on nursery bow at Ayr in August, and not disgraced in two starts since, although hasn't quite matched that form. Needs to step up somewhat to get involved here.
