Ex-Sir Mark Prescott inmate who has not lived up to decent pedigree. Well held on debut for new yard at Newcastle last month, and has since been gelded.
By Invincible Spirit out of a close relative of 1000 Guineas winner Ghanaati, who has produced Queen Mary winner Maqaasid. Sold cheaply to join current yard, but definitely worth noting in the market given smart pedigree.
Best effort when third at Thirsk in June for Richard Guest, but below that form for new yard. Did a bit better when fourth at Chelmsford on Thursday, but more required now.
Regressive maiden who competes off basement marks in handicaps, and makes no appeal whatsoever in this company.
Intikhab colt who cost £50,000 as a two-year-old, and ran with promise on debut at Nottingham (5f, good to soft) last October. Has left John Butler and market useful on debut for new yard.
Half-brother to a couple of winners and knew his job when 6½L sixth of 11 to Always A Drama in 6f novice at Kempton last month, leading for much of the way. Place claims if he can build on that.
In frame on all three starts for current yard, and latest ½L second of 11 to Victors Lady in a C&D novice makes him very much the one to beat.
Well beaten twice for Karl Burke, and failed to beat a rival on debut for current yard at Redcar (7f) last time.
In frame in similar events at Yarmouth and Lingfield in the summer, but has disappointed in two handicap outings, and finished last on two previous tries in a visor.
Half-sister to owner/trainer's 6f winner First Excel, and has shown speed on both starts to date, but no end product, so is either a long-term prospect or simply a short runner.
Appeared to excel herself in a 7f handicap at Wolverhampton in September, but clearly flattered by that run, and looks very limited otherwise.
