Showed bits and pieces of promise for James Tate without winning. Returns from a three-month break on first start for new yard today. tongue tie goes on and market check very much needed.
Eight-race maiden who has looked a little short of speed at times. Stayed on from out the back at Lingfield (1m2f) last time and worry would be this trip not being ideal.
Disappointing maiden after ten starts and has barley beaten a rival home in three starts this year. hard to fancy until showing much more.
Clear signs of ability in novice company, but may have found 1m1½f too far at Wolverhampton it was disappointing she didn't fair a little better back over 7f last time. This trip worth a go and improvement still possible.
Four efforts so far in novice company and best effort by some way came here. Has more to offer than a few of these and should make presence felt on handicap debut.
Well backed and shaped well on handicap debut at Kempton (1m) on Wednesday. Cheekpieces added here and will be a major player if turning out quickly once again.
Improved with each run so far and not beaten far at all here (7f) last time when just ahead of Twpsyn. Should be more to come and sound claims now switching to a handicap.
