15:00 Musselburgh Wed 3 July 2019
Capable of popping up and causing a surprise (as shown around this time last season), but still not overly appealing on the basis of both starts this season. Steps up quite a fair bit in trip after struggling over 1m2f at Haydock last time.
0-10 and unable to progress from what was a decent effort on seasonal debut (which came at this track), with three lifeless efforts of late. Subsequently 5lb lower in the weights, but a lot of faith required to fancy her.
Never looked a threat in six runs since returning from almost two years off the track. Subsequently 13lb below last winning mark and would need a major revival to feature. Others make much more appeal.
Outran 40-1 odds when fourth in a decent contest at Pontefract (2m1f; good to soft) last time. Possibilities if able reproduce that level of form in this weaker contest off last winning mark. Gone well at this course in the past.
Unable to justify market favouritism last time when sent off 2-1F at Wolverhampton (1m6f; standard) and only managing to finish sixth. Now makes stable debut on return to turf and is not completely discounted. Watch market vibes.
Irish-raider/dual-purpose performer who has held form well over hurdles since joining this yard last summer. Has first start on the flat for the first time in 362 days and is still lightly raced so could be open to masses of improvement.
Not able to build upon quite promising stable debut last time when sixth at Redcar (1m6f; good). Dropped 2lb for that effort but not completely disgraced and would hold place claims in this slightly weaker contest.
Tends to represent himself well at this level. Was a winner at this track over slightly shorter in May. Not so good recently but drop in trip a possible excuse last time at Hamilton (1m3f; good). Could come back to form now returned to this trip.
Stepped on previous AW efforts when posting a more encouraging run when third at Ayr (1m7f; good) in a similar sort of race to this. Should be bang there again if able to replicate that run and jockey offsets handy 7lb.
Notched first career win at the 40th attempt when making all over C&D last time. Held on by a neck from Siyahamba (who reopposes today). Not certain to confirm that form and he may have competition for the lead.
0-7 but still fairly lightly raced and is on a fair mark. Should progress from seasonal reappearance effort at Carlisle (1m3f; soft) and is a worth each-way player in a race where many are not open to as much improvement.
24-race maiden who is an admirably consistent sort. Not out of the first three in six runs since December. Only beaten a neck over C&D by Rock N'Stones two starts ago and could reverse the form with that rival but needs more to be a win prospect.
Inconsistent on the level last season and has been pulled-up on each of her last three starts over hurdles. Others are more convincing and she is best watched for the time being.
