- 1m 2f 219y, Standard / Slow
- 13 Runners
- Surface: Polytrack
Improved on debut win when not beaten too far in better race at Thirsk last time out. Ideally drawn but may be vulnerable to some less exposed types giving weight away. Can still go close if acting on this surface.
Really useful effort in a decent maiden at Carlisle on his only racecourse appearance two weeks ago. If running up to that performance he can go close with the step up in trip expected to suit.
Struggled on his reappearance at Nottingham on soft but showed his well-being when not beaten too far over ten furlongs at Lingfield eight days ago. Front runner, who is going the right way and has decent place claims.
Well-bred gelding who cost €100,000 as a yearling. Obviously had problem given he gelded so young. Ran a fair race on his only racecourse appearance at Ascot in May. Entitled to improve. Market may be the best guide.
Only had the two racecourse appearances and well beaten in both. Unlikely to be good enough and may have to wait until running in handicaps to find a winning opportunity.
Did not show any promise on his racecourse debut when beaten by nearly 25 lengths at Newbury last month. No reason why he could not improve but easily passed over in this contest.
Beaten over 35 lengths on his only racecourse appearance at Salisbury last month. Has chances based on his breeding but easy to overlook in this type of contest against some more experienced rivals.
Beaten 54 lengths on his debut and by 62 lengths on his latest appearance in May. Very hard to make a case for.
Well beaten on only racecourse appearance (decent Newbury maiden) but entitled to improve and not to be lightly dismissed from powerful yard. Others make more appeal, however.
Improved on a disappointing debut at Nottingham when finishing 4th (beaten 6 lengths) at Windsor on his latest start. Step up in trip will suit and one to consider but may be one to look at again when he gets a handicap mark.
Has been a beaten favourite on his last three starts and punters are starting to lose patience. Led for a long time but failed to stay the trip over 1m4f latest. Overall form is fair but becoming expensive to follow.
Beaten 34 lengths on her only racecourse appearance. Entitled to improve but would need to massively to get competitive.
Nicely bred filly who cost 37,000gns as a yearling. Related to milers and some competitive 1m2f winners. Market should be the best guide to her chances on her debut.
