Eight-race maiden whose form would actually suggest that she is regressing. Dropped another 2lb by the handicapper after an unsatisfactory run when 4th at Chepstow (1m2f; good to firm) last time. Tough task.
Raced exclusively at 1m on the AW in four starts last season. Showed improved form on final start when fourth on handicap debut, when it seemed as though the step up to 1m2f would really suit. Strongly fancied.
Hard to believe he was bought for 300,000gns as a yearling. Improved on what he has shown so far in handicaps when fourth at Goodwood and would have a chance if able to reproduce that level of form.
Secured first career success, when winning at Lingfield (1m2f; standard) a month ago. Not seen since which is a slight worry, but he is a definite player if managing to build on that run. Inconsistent sort prior to breaking her maiden.
Rare runner on the flat for top jumps trainer Colin Tizzard which should be noted. Showed improved form on first try at this trip when 2nd at Salisbury (1m2f; good to firm) and would hold each-way claims in this.
Holds a similar profile to that of Irish Art. Finished down the field in three maidens last season before stepping up in trip on handicap debut to improve markedly on what she had previously shown. Major player.
