7f good ground winner on debut in April. Probably ran to similar level under his penalty here the following month. Off since and work to do to give the weight away to rivals who have shown promise.
Beat just the one rival home when tailed off only start over 1m3f at Carlisle last month and hard to make a case for today.
Has made the frame in all three runs to date but the second one, on good to soft ground was his least convincing effort and owners retained jockey prefers Critical Time.
Sixth foal. Half-brother to stout stayer Dew Pond and will surely be seen in better light when trying longer trips further down the line.
Similar level of form both starts at this trip when runner-up each time firstly on soft at Newbury and then on the AW. More to come though slightly further could be her optimum trip.
Both runs to date on good ground and took a big step forward on most recent when chasing home one who has since finished second in a Sandown handicap. Can improve again and sure to play a major role.
Promise on belated debut over C&D last month when not knocked about in 5L third. The winner, second and fourth have all won since to give the form a solid look and with normal improvement has to be a serious contender with that experience gained.
10L fourth of seven on recent Newmarket debut. Can improve but needs to and yard look to have better claims with Beauty Of Deira.
25/1 when mid division on AW debut in the winter and then withdrawn having refused to enter the stalls at Redcar in June. Needs to take a major step forward to get involved.
Has shown next to nothing at huge prices in pair of 1m2f maidens and impossible to make a case for on this drop down in trip.
