Made some improvement on his second start having been very green on a belated debut. Both those runs came over 1m and he steps back to 7f here; should be able to progress further on his qualifying run.
Oasis Dream colt who cost 38,000 guineas as a yearling out of an unraced dam (half-sister to a couple of smart US winners). Hooded for his debut; trainer 2-30 with such types in his career, only of interest on the back of a market move.
Has quite an appealing pedigree (cost 160,000 guineas as a two-year-old) but showed nothing but inexperience on his debut over 6f here. May know a little more this time stepping up to 7f but looks one of the lesser lights.
Half-brother to several winners; failed to impress on his debut (Kempton, 7f) when diving left at the starts (ran green thereafter). Likely to need a run or two more to get the hang of things; little interest this side of handicaps.
Stable not noted for his type (only cost 6,500 guineas as a yearling); half-brother to a French winner at up to 1m4f (dam German juvenile 7f winner). Unlikely to trouble the principals on debut.
Run twice this year over further at Wolverhampton offering little on both occasions and finishing well held. Hard to see him making much impact here despite the shorter trip.
Returns from an absence having run twice at the end of last year making his debut at this trip. Looked unsuited by the drop to 6f second time out and will be more at home over 7f; wouldn't be without a chance.
Showed very little on her debut (6f, Wolverhampton) when she was outpaced and never on terms. Upped in trip (1m) and switched to turf last time she again didn't impress; can only be watched.
Just her second run back from an absence having shown plenty to work on from her debut (Newmarket, 7f); shaped better than her finishing position. Not knocked around on that occasion; leading contender if coping with her absence.
Has offered little in three outings so far having been gradually stepped up in trip (bred for further than 7f). Little to rave about from her AW debut last time and likely to start amongst the longer prices in the market again.
Well held on her debut run over 6f at Pontefract she was then switched to the Southwell fibresand but did little better over the same trip. Upped to 7f now on another different surface' others present a more persuasive argument.
Stable surprisingly 2-8 with three-year-old newcomers in this sphere so maybe worth watching for a positive move. Out of a maiden dam (best effort at 7f) there are some useful types relations on the distaff side; interesting newcomer.
Both AW runs have so far come on Tapeta; stepped up on her debut run over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton last time (finished midfield). Looked a little one paced with the switch back to 7f not being ideal; one for handicaps once she has a mark.
Not a stable that you would naturally turn to with a newcomer in this type of race. Second foal out of a dam who was a winner at 7f she's best observed in this with the stable 0-7 with newcomer of this age in novice events.
