Showed marked improvement from underwhelming debut effort to take a heavy-ground maiden at Nottingham over this trip. Likely to encounter much quicker conditions and has to give weight away all round, but could be plenty to more to come.
Form has been franked since he got off the mark at the second attempt at Chelmsford (7f; standard) last month. Drops back in trip and must deal with the penalty, but yard are in red-hot form so a bold bid from the front is expected.
Does have a fair level of ability but the form of the race he won at Beverley (7f; good) has been let down by the runner-up who he only narrowly defeated. Has to contend with the penalty, but should still be there or thereabouts.
Debut effort was fair when third at Lingfield (6f; good to firm). Strength of that contest shown to be weak when he could only managed seventh next time out in a stronger affair at Newmarket (6f; good to firm). Place claims at best.
Well-beaten on debut at Windsor (6f; good to soft) when only managing to finish 12th of 15. Hard to expect much better than that on his second career start in a similarly decent contest. Best watched.
Debut run offered plenty of promise when he finished a one-length third behind Big City on vastly different ground at Nottingham (6f; heavy). Meets that rival on better terms now and could reverse the form.
Gregoria filly. Full-sister to three 6f winners. Yard don't tend to have too many winning newcomers and she is the only runner in the field making her debut. Huge task ahead for her.
