0-11, but has run some very good races in defeat. Form dipped below his usual consistent level last time (soft ground possible excuse). Should be thereabouts, but more needed to break his duck.
Improved on his debut when making the frame at Catterick last time. Needs similar step forward to compete here and should make greater appeal in handicaps.
Beaten a long way over this trip and on good to firm at both Lingfield and Newmarket. Not easy to fancy this time on that evidence.
6-1 and showed signs of greenness when beaten around 10l on debut at Chelmsford last month. Step up to 7f looks positive and he could take a decent step forward this time.
Held in handicaps since his best effort so far, which came over C&D in May (good to firm). More needed, but still early days and not ruled out.
Showed plenty of promise when third on his second start at Newbury. Failed to see out 1m next time and beaten favourite when last seen in June. Claims at his best, but needs to bounce right back.
Ran green for long enough on debut before staying on well for a 6L second. Improvement needed, but that was promising and he could go well here.
17,000gns at three. 6th foal. Half-brother to 5f two-year-old winner Pedestal & US winners Mason's Pegasus (5½f-1m dirt inc at two) & My Philly Girl (6½f AW/dirt). Dam US 5½f dirt winner. Stable 3yos 5% this season. Best watched on debut.
Out of a maiden half-sister to two winners. Stable has not had a three-year-old winner since 2013, so this gelding looks one to watch on debut.
Not without promise in two starts, but certainly not suggesting that this will be his day either. Should appeal more when going handicapping.
Well beaten on both visits to the racecourse; drops back in trip this time, but readily opposed.
Made favourite prior to going close on debut here over C&D last year, when with Hugo Palmer. Reappears for new trainer after 13-months off. Claims if in same form, but has that to prove.
