Helmet half-brother to several winners from 7f to 1m3f. Looked green on first three starts and may need further.
Opened up her career with a couple of runner-up slots over 5f before being outclassed in Listed company. Given a wind op after that run she returned to make her nursery debut (ran poorly) and tongue-tie added this time.
Stepped up on nursery debut to score over 7f at Yarmouth. Made all that day and well drawn to adopt the same tactics over the minimum trip.
Showed a good battling attitude to score on nursery debut at Kempton (6f). That was a much improved effort and she is just 3lb higher.
58,000 gns Kodiac filly out of a mare who won six races and who's produced two AW winners including Sign Of The Kodiac who has won here twice. Out of her depth last time but showed some ability at Newcastle and the drop to 5f helps.
Has shown speed previously but is beginning to look a short runner. Cheekpieces may help, but the draw doesn't.
Speedy front-runner drawn well and in form. There will be plenty of competition up front and this may go to something with greater stamina.
Best effort came when attempting to make all at Pontefract. Did too much out in front at Newcastle and another who will not be suited by the amount of pace in this contest.
Ayr winner but has failed to land a blow off his revised mark and now makes his AW debut. Stable 3-11 in past fortnight.
Well beaten at lengthy odds on all three starts and has beaten just one rival in the process. Hard to fancy on handicap debut.
