Beaten a neck when runner-up in a 5f novice event at Musselburgh (good) earlier this month. Likely to have improved for the experience and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Finished fourth on both starts so far most recently over this trip at Pontefract (good-to-firm) at the start of the month. Notable runner on this occasion.
Outpaced prior to finishing third of six in a firm ground novice over this trip at Bath on debut 11 days ago. Likely capable of better.
Good neck second in a 5f maiden at Doncaster (good) when debuting at the end of last month. Winner that day has finished runner-up in a decent race since and he looks likely to play a leading role once more.
Unraced Outstrip colt bought for £42,000 at the sales last August. Dam won over 6f and market support would be notable on debut.
Unraced Sepoy colt cost 48,000 gns at the sales last autumn. Half-brother to multiple winner Merchant Of Venice and interesting to see how he fares on debut.
Well held seventh in a ten runner AW event over this trip at Newcastle on debut last month. More needed if he's to take this on turf debut.
Unraced daughter of Clodovil bought for €27,000 as a yearling. Dam unplaced in three starts at two and market support would be notable on first racecourse appearance.
