Took advantage of a pace collapse to register a 6L to gain sole success at the 18th attempt. Turf mark and performances have suffered so connections try to take advantage of a more generous AW mark.
Back to the mark which brought a victory in higher grade in May. Last two runs have been poor and headgear fitted this time.
Missed the break here on penultimate start but smartly away when making all and clinging on last time. That was a weak race and he is 5lb higher this time
Fourth in a better race than this on Tuesday and that the best effort this €100,000 purchase has achieved. This will take little winning and further progress should see him go close.
Third on debut at Newmarket last season remains her best run by far. Has barely beaten a rival on last two AW starts and she is hard to recommend.
Without a win since 2016 but has joined a yard that have revived similar types in the past. In a poor race this time and worthy of a market check.
Solid effort when third of eight off this mark at Lingfield in April. Has to overcome a long absence and stable have been quiet.
Placed on his last three starts in similarly weak company and yard in good form currently. Has a good draw but usually attacks from the rear and that not always the best strategy around here.
