Beautifully bred son on Frankel but yet to show the expected level after four starts. May fare better than latest back on a quicker surface here and cheekpieces another potential cause for improvement.

Improved efforts in 1m handicaps to start this season finishing fourth and sixth respectively. 1lb ease not enough to think him well handicapped but chance if extra 2f brings out improvement.

Last of three AW novice races hinted at a filly on the up with a decent third at Kempton but turf/handicap debut at Nottingham most disappointing. Hard to fancy after that but surprise if she doesn't fare better.

Showed little in first three on turf for Luca Cumani but up in trip and on AW she was only just touched off in a 1m1½f handicap in November. Joined prolific yard since Cumani's retirement and no surprise should she progress further now.

Campaigned with the long term in mind in three two-year-old starts seemingly learning on the job. Gelded, up in trip and now handicapping it will be an interesting watch here even though others compel more.

Yet to win a race but both handicaps this season respectable and over both 1m and 7½f he has looked like he may appreciate further (dam by Galileo). Could be the time to take a chance on him now especially if an each-way price.

Vast improvement lately and after finishing second over 1m Thirsk he matched that over 1m2f at Beverley despite a 3lb rise. Gets a further 3lb for that but surely will make another bold bid.

Struggled in a trio of starts as a juvenile, too keen on his latest outing at Wolverhampton in November. Continued his run of only finishing seventh on return at Redcar and with that in mind he still has much to prove.

Betting

Forecast

Swansdown (4/6), Highwaygrey (5/1), Frankadore (10/1), George Mallory (10/1), Kensington Art (12/1), Precision Prince (12/1), She's Apples (14/1), Edmond Dantes (20/1), Northern Lyte (20/1), Ransomed Dreams (28/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken here on SWANSDOWN who improved with each start last year and looked like she would further for another step up in trip when a running in second latest. The fact she's now housed at William Haggas' yard only adds to the confidence. Highwaygrey will be popular after back-to-back seconds and is a safe bet to go well again. Kensington Art appeals as the sort to improve for a step up in trip.
