Still a maiden after 11 starts including eight handicaps she has shown some ability although the handicapper would appear to have her about right. Placed on numerous occasions she ran to a fair level last time; looks vulnerable to improvers.
Some evidence that he's good enough to win a race but has on occasions looked a far from easy ride (already tried in a hood; now dons cheekpieces). Supported last time over his trip he was never a threat; now drops to a grade which may suit better.
Looks a typical stable improver showing a good attitude when making all at Bath over this trip last time to open his account. Penalised here there appeared to be something left in the locker last time; remains with potential, won't be far away.
Handicap debutant brought along steadily with this sphere in mind (gelded since his qualifying run). Returns to 1m2f (tried over this trip once before) having run over 1m last time; not harshly treated, could well step forward in handicaps.
More exposed some of these but not without ability having run well the last twice in handicaps over this trip. Unfortunate not to finish a little closer to the winner last time at Chepstow (slowly away); good enough to win an ordinary handicap.
In better form earlier in the year a stretch that included his one win so far (1m, Kempton, Polytrack debut). Returned from a 10-week break to run a poor race last time (shaped as if amiss despite a slipped saddle); questions to answer now.
Form was modest as a juvenile when with Richard Hannon and quickly departed that yard over the winter. Showed very little on his debut for this yard at Southwell (always behind); would need a major effort now to get involved.
