Followed up her promising debut at Ripon (5f) where she was runner-up to score at Beverley (5f) in May. Little impact since, but has much more realistic claims now handicapping, and likely to bounce back.
Well held on all three runs, but did show improvement when 4L fifth of 6 to Big City at Nottingham last time. That came on heavy ground, so he needs to show that he can build on it now handicapping on faster ground.
Has improved a little for forcing tactics on last two starts, finishing fourth of 8 to Gallaside in a 7f novice at Newcastle last time, despite hanging. Drops in trip for nursery debut, and opening mark looks harsh on balance.
Not lived up to price tag as yet, but produced her best effort when 4½L fourth of 7 to Wren in a 7f novice at Kempton last time, and given yard's excellent record in nurseries, she looks a player despite an awkward draw.
Hasn't built on 2¼L fourth of 8 to Baileys In Bloom on debut at Beverley, and not easy to fancy even on that bare form, but always possible that move to nurseries will be a catalyst for improvement, and market useful.
All his runs have come over 5f, and improved when 6¼L sixth of 11 to Romero in a Doncaster novice last time. Should benefit from a step up in trip, and type to do better now handicapping from a good draw.
Much his best effort when sixth of 8 to War Storm in a 6f novice at York in May, and claims on that, but failed badly to build on that when last at Ayr subsequently, and blinkers now reached for. Risky.
Best effort when fifth of 9 to Littledidyouknow in a 5f novice at Southwell in April. Just behind The Ginger Bullet at Doncaster last time, but didn't look like he wanted a step up in trip given how he faded there.
Made a bit of improvement on her second start at Hamilton (5f), despite finding the trip on the sharp side, and was again outpaced on latest start at Carlisle. Will be more effective now trying 6f for the first time, and merits respect as a result.
Soundly beaten in three starts to date, and although open to improvement with experience, the handicapper has taken no chances with his opening mark, and widest draw a negative.
Best effort on second start when a staying-on fifth of 7 at Hamilton, but failed to improve when stepped up to 6f there last time, and his opening mark is harsh on balance of form. Cheekpieces tried for nursery bow.
Some promise on Musselburgh debut in the early days of the season, although has taken backward steps in two runs since. Given time to strengthen up since last seen, but will need plenty of improvement to figure here.
Out of a winning half-sister to yard's smart sprinter Spinatrix. Not shown much to date, including in a seller, but receives weight all round now handicapping, and has the best of the draw, so catalysts for improvement are there.
