Has shown little in six runs in bumpers, hurdles and two Flat maidens. Needs this to qualify for a handicap mark and it may prove to be a low one.
Ran to a similar level on first four starts and tailed off at Ripon when last seen. One of a few with questions to answer.
Unraced Dick Turpin gelding out of a miler who won here and on Fibresand. Not highly tried on debut but obvious stamina doubts given the pedigree.
Beaten twice at short prices for John Gosden and moved on after finishing fifth of six here in March. Cheekpieces worn then removed by new handler.
Out of a half-sister to St Leger winner Brian Boru, so obviously bred to cope with at least this sort of distance. Looked raw on debut but was getting the hang of things as the race progressed.
Related to six winners including Queensland Derby victor Dariana. Stable's runners usually require a run but still worth a check in the market for a race lacking in depth.
Proved regressive for Sir Michael Stoute but had initially shown enough to win a race like this. Has moved to a yard that can unlock latent ability so worth checking the market signals.
48-rated 13-race maiden looks out of her depth in this kind of company. Best performance came here but needs more help than that.
First three performances would make her a warm order for this, but latest run at Chelmsford was well below those levels and is hard to excuse without a plausible explanation.
