Didn't make much of an impression on debut for Dermot Weld in Ireland and much the same story on debut for his current yard when down the field at Windsor last month; others far more appealing.
Well held in both previous starts and a big amount of improvement is now required.
Showed plenty of promise on debut and the form of his Newmarket run has been franked at Listed level since; going the right way and a big player here.
Didn't show much on debut and was a well beaten last of three at Brighton in May; plenty to prove but at least qualifies for a mark after this.
Finished last on debut but did show that he'd learned from the run when tried over a mile at Newbury last month. Needs to progress further but this is a weak event and the Rip Van Winkle colt might just have enough zest to make the frame.
Got going late in the day on debut at Windsor and showed enough to say he's capable of more. Solid place claims if able to take another stride in the right direction.
The most experienced of the bunch and undoubtedly the most exposed. The filly's last couple of outings have created the impression that a small handicap is within her compass; dangerous to underestimate despite being 0-7 so far.
Cost €13,000 and is a half-sister to five winners; the trip should suit on pedigree and not out faced for her racecourse debut. Obvious lack of experience the only negative in a weak race.
