15:50 Doncaster Sat 10 November 2018
Good third in a 6f handicap at Newbury (good-to-soft) last time out. Races off a 1lb higher mark and another good run looks likely.
Impressive 6L winner of a 6f novice event at Pontefract (good-to-soft) last month. Had won a handicap prior to that and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Fourth in a valuable 6f sales race at Newmarket (good-to-soft) early last month. Below par at Newbury subsequently and more needed in this contest.
Winner of a novice event on good ground at Newmarket (6f) in July. Close fifth in France subsequently and returns from a break having disappointed upped to 7f last time out.
Placed on five of his seven starts to date. Finished a good second over 6f at York (soft) last time out and cheekpieces are tried for the first time on this occasion.
Placed on all three starts including in a 6f soft ground novice contest at Redcar last time out. Returning from a break that day and is of interest on handicap debut.
Sole victory came in a 5f soft ground maiden at Yarmouth at the start of May. Held since though signs of a possible return to form when third at Nottingham (5f, good-to-firm) recently.
Signs of ability in three starts over 7f and 1m so far. Represents a top yard and market support would be notable dropping in distance on handicap debut.
Off the mark at the third attempt when winning a 6f novice event at Carlisle (good-to-soft) in August. Well beaten in a sales race subsequently and more needed on handicap debut.
Beaten just 2L when fourth in a 6f novice event at Leicester (good-to-firm) in August. Finished last of four at Epsom (7f, soft) later that month and making his handicap debut in a first time hood following a break.
Promising second over an extended 5f at Wetherby (good-to-firm) on debut in June. Held in two subsequent starts that month and makes her handicap debut following a break.
Placed third in a good-to-soft ground maiden over this trip at Haydock in September. Struggled since however including over 7f on handicap debut last time.
Good third on good-to-soft going at Pontefract in a handicap over this trip on his penultimate start. Not beaten far upped to 7f on the AW subsequently but likely more needed on this occasion.
Placed on debut at York (6f, good-to-firm) on debut in June. Disappointing twice since and makes his handicap debut having had wind surgery since his latest outing.
Experienced filly having had ten starts including when winning a handicap on debut for this yard at Catterick (5f, good-to-firm) in September. Placed since and interesting to see how she performs.
Registered a 1L victory in a 5f handicap at Haydock (heavy) last month. Fair sixth over this distance on soft going subsequently and vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
