Newcastle win in September and after a below par effort, bounced back to form on first attempt at this trip at Wolverhampton. 4lb rise in a better race demands more though is unexposed at this distance.
Looked to have more in hand than the 1L margin when getting off the mark over 1m3f last time. That was compensation for a narrow defeat at this trip on previous start and is clearly on the upgrade now. Obvious claims of following up.
13 race maiden though has made the frame on several occasions. Has tried various trips with similar results and having tried 2m last time, the drop in trip tonight might be against her.
Placed in a pair of AW maidens in the winter but was then off for four months when disappointing at Nottingham in June and subsequent five months absence suggests she may have had a problem..
Has shown some ability in maidens and capable of improvement now handicapping. Needs to settle better but interesting to see how he goes in the market.
Found the drop in trip all against on latest run but now handicapping over a more suitable distance and opening mark could prove lenient. Certainly worth a market check.
Has claims on his third here on penultimate but disappointing subsequently and needs to improve in the first time tongue tie he now sports.
Ran respectably after a five months absence when 6L third over C&D last month. Should trip fitter and has since changed hands for 20,000 gns though remains in same yard.
Ran right up to her best when second over C&D last time and although that was a weaker race, the third has won since to give the form a boost.
