Built on earlier promise without having to improve when making all to land a 1m2f novice at Lingfield last month. Much more needed to score here, but entitled to respect on positive profile.
Improved when making all in a 1m½f novice at Wolverhampton last time, and could do better again, but did have the run of things there, and will need to improve to score against stronger rivals here.
Yet another to make all the running to get off the mark last time, and he was also given plenty of rope to gain that win. Handicapper hasn't overreacted, though, and this well-bred gelding looks to hold every chance again.
Made all to score off 6lb lower at Southwell in December, and not disgraced when runner-up there last time, but more exposed that most, and others may have his measure again.
Half-sister to connections' smart middle-distance performer Wall of Fire who improved for the fitting of blinkers, and this filly has run creditably the last twice. Step up in trip and fitting of blinkers could be catalysts for improvement.
Off the mark in 1m Kempton nursery when last seen, relishing strong pace to produce an improved effort. Up 10lb after a break, but should have the race run to suit, and respected.
