Josr Algarhoud newcomer out of a modest 3m2f/3m5f chase winner out of point winner. Likely need further and best watched.
Showed ability when fourth of eight on debut at Catterick last month. A couple of these have stronger claims but she should progress and does have place chances.
Midnight Legend mare made a most pleasing start when second of nine at Southwell despite racing green. Can some on plenty for that given this yard's newcomers often need the run so has strong claims here.
Moderately bred mare finished a tailed off last of nine on debut at Ayr in February. Can only be watched here.
Slight improvement here latest when third although well beaten. Future likely over fences and farther but has place claims today.
Inexpensive yearling (£2,200); started 100/1 when finishing a well beaten fifth of eight on debut here but ran well from the front when fourth at Newcastle since. Place claims.
Made a promising start at Huntingdon in November when fourth of 16 and again showed potential when third at Doncaster next. Had a break since but if ready to go she should go close today.
Spanish Moon debutant. Second foal; dam French 2m1f hurdle winner, half-sister to 2m-3m1f hurdle/useful chase winner Pickamus and bumper/useful 2m-3m hurdle/chase winner Vice Et Vertu. Watching brief.
Newcomer by Shirocco a half-sister to 2m-2m4f hurdle winner Playhara and bumper/2m hurdle winner Danielle's Journey. From a good yard and the most likely of the debutantes here.
Half-sister to 2m hurdle winner Bulas Belle and point winner Taylormade Boy was well beaten on debut at Southwell earlier this month so best watched here.
5,500gns purchasefirst foal; dam French 1m1f-12.5f winner (inc dual Group 2), sister to French 1m4f Listed winner Van Gosh. Likable flat pedigree so market can guide but expect a solid show.
