In frame on her last three starts on AW, and set too much to do when 6¼L fourth of 13 to Freedom And Wheat in a 7f nursery at Lingfield last time. Sure to go well in a race with little depth.
Well bred, but hasn't gone on from a fair debut , and well held in nurseries here and at Kempton, wearing blinkers on the latter occasion. This represents a drop in class, which offers hope.
Has ability, but probably not as much as his current mark would suggest, and he finished last of four in a similar event at Lingfield on latest start.
Hasn't achieved a great deal in three starts over shorter, but significantly up in trip for handicap debut, and that could be the catalyst for much-needed improvement.
Hinted at ability on penultimate outing, but well held in a claimer last time, and looks badly handicapped on that showing. Hopes rest on the fitting of blinkers for the first time.
Gelded since finishing down the field in three qualifying runs at 7f/1m. Needs to do much better, but not unimaginable that he will do so.
Offered hope when mid-field on debut, but now looks flattered by that run, and seemed to confirm her mark a stiff one when well beaten in a Southwell nursery last time.
No better than eighth in a trio of nursery outings, the latest on debut for current yard, and while her mark is beginning to slip, she makes very little appeal.
Beaten out of sight on first two starts, but fared much better when 12L equal-sixth of 13 to Noble Lineage in a 1m½f novice here last time. An indictment of the weakness of this contest that he can be arguably deemed the form pick.
Probably flattered by penultimate fourth in a Newcastle nursery where she stayed on past beaten rivals, and finished last with a visor retained last time. Headgear missing now, and others preferred.
Showed ability when fifth of 12 on 6f debut at Ripon, and had no chance dropped to 5f here last time. Dam won over 1m, and she is sure to improve now racing over a more appropriate trip.
No impact in qualifying races at up to 1m½f, and a likely outsider having faded tamely here last time.
From the family of connections' grand campaigner Master Carpenter, and while he's looked limited at 5f/6f so far, he;s bred to do much better now tackling a more suitable distance, and can't be dismissed.
