Stable going well. Has shown promise, but this initial mark looks stiff enough, so improvement needed.
Best effort was on soft at Haydock in September. Below that level last twice, including over C&D last time, but has claims if back to her best.
Held when last tried over this trip, but worth another go. Won a 7f Leicester novice event in August, and has a squeak from this mark if repeating that.
Won a Brighton nursery (7f, good to firm) on penultimate start. Held from this mark on AW latest. Step up in trip may see him improve and needs some of that to win.
Back to her best last time at Yarmouth (7f). Up 1lb for that, so needs some improvement, and the return to 1m offers scope for that. Not ruled out.
Inconsistent so far, but still early days. Back in better form on AW last time. 1lb drop will help. Not ruled out.
Struggled here over 1m2f in better company last time, but the drop in trip and in grade could bring about a much more competitive effort.
Put up a better effort again on AW last time out, for which he has gone back up 2lb. More needed, but 5lb now claimed and not written off.
Not shown a huge amount in novice events. Potential for improvement now up to this trip and entering nurseries, but initial mark will certainly ask questions.
Not devoid of promise in novice/maiden events so far. Enters nurseries up in trip but his mark looks stiff. Probably best watched.
0-12. Went close in a Redcar claimer two starts ago, and bettered that back in a nursery at Leicester last time. Steps up in trip in a marginally stronger field here, so more needed.
Took a step back in the right direction at Pontefract last time (1m, good to soft). Back up 1lb for that, so more needed, but not written off.
