Soundly beaten on debut behind Calyx but ran on strongly when only beaten ½L at Epsom over 7f in July. Below that form next time, but bred to do much better in handicaps, and market check essential.
Has shown ability and temperament in similar measure, and well beaten when last seen at Newmarket in October. Possible that gelding will iron out his kinks, and certainly bred to do better than he has so far.
Bred for artificial surfaces, and improved a tad on earlier efforts when 2L second of 12 to Mister Chiang in a 1m maiden at Chelmsford last time. Should do better yet, and not taken lightly.
Placed off this mark at Nottingham in November, which would put him in contention, but disappointing in two starts since, and ran a stinker when tried in blinkers last time. Headgear left off now.
Out of Oaks winner Casual Look, and belatedly built on debut promise when 5¼L fifth of 12 to Reeth on nursery debut over C&D last time. Blinkers tried now, and claims if reacting positively to the headgear.
Ran well on turf debut for Roger Varian, but disappointing since, including in two runs for current yard. Could do better in handicaps, but hard to fancy on recent evidence.
Shaped well at long odds here on racecourse bow, and best effort since when sixth of 10 to Deira Surprise in 7f nursery at Wolverhampton last time. Fair bit more required now, but ought to improve.
Half-brother to Musidora winner Give And Take, and has offered something to work on in three runs at 6f/7f. Gelded since running at Redcar in September, and type to improve markedly for step up to 1m and further.
Has gone the wrong way after showing ability over 5f here on April debut, and particularly disappointing on nursery bow at Southwell in November. Cheekpieces reached for now.
