Still a maiden after five races but he did show some promise on the AW during his two-year-old campaign. Could only finish sixth of eight on first turf run at Nottingham (1m6f, good) when 50/1. Blinkers on for first time. Needs to improve.
Still a maiden after five races but has improved since going handicapping where he has been in the frame in both of his two starts. Was third of eight at Nottingham (1m6f) last time. Open to further improvement so one to consider.
Lightly raced gelding who broke his maiden at Redcar (1m6f) two starts back. Was only 1½l behind the winner last time at Bath (1m6f) when third of 11. Will appreciate the step up in trip. Major player.
Went close to breaking his maiden two starts back at Wetherby (1m6f) when second of seven. Stepped down in trip last time at Beverley (1m4f) where he was last of 11. More suited to this distance. One to watch.
Has shown very little on his three starts so far, including on latest effort when sixth of eight at Salisbury (1m2f) last month. Cheekpieces on for first time, stepping up in trip and handicap debut so keep an eye out for any market support.
Still a maiden after six races. Made opening start for new yard at Thirsk (1m4f) earlier this month where he was fifth of eight runners after going off at 33/1. First attempt at this trip. Others preferred.
Almost pulled off a big upset last time when he was second of 10 runners at Redcar (1m6f) when going off at 66/1. Gone up just 1lb for his most recent effort so a repeat of that run will see him go close.
Remains a maiden after 13 races but has come close a couple of times this year, including two starts back at Redcar (1m6f, good to firm) when third of nine. Was fifth of 14 last time on the AW at Lingfield (1m4f). Up in trip today. One to watch.
Made a promising return to action last month when fifth of 12 at Beverley (1m4f, good to soft). She then came home sixth of 10 at Redcar over the longer trip of 1m6f. Improvement needed to be in the mix.
Has shown very little in her four starts so far., including latest at Redcar (1m6f) where she had just two horses behind her in a 10 runner field. There has been very little market confidence in her so far. Difficult to make a case for.
