Gelded son of Orientor who is a brother to three winners from 5f to 7f. Will probably need this debut experience, but is worth keeping an eye on.
Irish challenger who is a maiden after eight starts, but boasts some decent placed form, especially on turf. Acts on the AW, though, and first-time cheekpieces and positive jockey booking makes him interesting.
Swiss Spirit gelding who fetched £18,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a winner over 1m. Best watched on debut unless the market speaks in his favour.
Both starts have been over 7f at this venue and she stepped up on her debut run when finishing in mid-division recently. Getting the hang of things, but more is needed.
Only her second run and her first appearance on the AW when a creditable third of 13 at Wolverhampton. Could get involved if taking another leap forward in a first-time tongue tie.
Sent off at 100-1 on both starts over C&D. Slightly better effort on the latest of them, but has plenty to prove and may fare better in handicaps.
Plenty of promise when placed on both starts on turf last summer. Represents a trainer who does well on the AW and looks a leading contender.
Not a great deal to enthuse about in both displays at Thirsk and Wolverhampton. Should do better in time, but is one to watch until showing more.
Compton Place filly who cost only 7,000 gns as a foal and is a half-sister to a 6f AW winner. Represents a strong stable, but may need this debut run.
Fair degree of promise on latest of two runs for Roger Varian. Tries her hand for a new trainer and is well worth a check in the betting on first outing since September.
