Fibresand debut for this one who has some decent maiden form to his name; sire has a fair record on the surface. Despite his 0-13 record he has run in some tough heats (including handicaps); decent chance if taking to the Fibresand.
Only ran twice as a juvenile and went backwards from his debut off a fairly quick turnaround. Plenty to like about his debut though; may well be a better individual this year and the yard do well with their runners here; one to note in the market.
Made his debut over C&D and appeared to act well enough on this unique surface beaten just 2L into third with So Hi Speed one place ahead in second. That form has yet to be tested but he looks sure to improve; has a rather awkward draw in stall 1.
Surface is an unknown for this one who has gone close to breaking his maiden on both his starts so far (both runs on Tapeta). Looks to have further progress in him and if he takes to this surface would have a definite chance.
Well supported last time on his debut on this surface (withdrawn when unruly time before) he did look a hard ride for much of the way on that occasion; carried head high. Cheekpieces now used again but may be a hard sort to win with.
Work to do with a couple of today's rivals on the basis of his initial effort here running to just a modest level. May well not reach fruition until he has a mark and is campaigned in low-grade handicaps.
Formerly with Richard Hughes as a juvenile (had just the two runs for that yard); disappointed on her second start having shown great promise from her debut effort. Makes stable/Fibresand debut (had wind op); interesting if finding her form.
