- Surface: Turf
10-race maiden for Jamie Osborne saw his form steadily regress and very poor on stable debut at Chepstow over this distance. Unproven on testing ground and questions to answer at present.
Ground an excuse at Yarmouth on latest start and much better suited by these conditions. Arguably better at a mile but stays this trip well enough and suited by these terms. Also declared at Chepstow on Friday.
Irish raider with just one second from nine starts on turf with sole win coming on the AW. Very poor on reappearance and drops in grade. On a fair weight if at his best but has struggled in testing conditions previously.
Since joining this yard has only beaten a single rival home in two hurdle and five AW Flat starts. Had heavy ground form for David Evans and only hope is that a similar surface brings her to life.
Improved for the switch to turf with a Redcar second on quick ground and a breakthrough win with cut in the ground at Hamilton. Pulled nicely clear and should improve at this trip. Put in on attractive terms and she's the one to beat.
Remains an eight-race maiden who is yet to get in the money. Best effort on debut came on soft but plenty more required off these terms following three poor runs this year.
Daughter of Tagula showed precious little in three starts for Paul Midgley last year and now dropped to claiming class for stable and season debut. Trainer without a Flat winner this year and hard to make any sort of case for off these terms.
