Her easy 6L maiden win was the filling in a disappointing sandwich that saw her beaten twice at odds-on (second defeat on nursery debut). Failed to get back on track when last seen trying to make all (spoilt chance by hanging); looks quirky sort.

Clear signs of ability over 5f in minor events (runner-up last twice); latest start over C&D when just touched off (took a wider course than the winner). Now makes his handicap debut from a good draw having had some course experience; leading chance.

Showed some good speed when winning at Windsor over 5f in June by 5L but has had her limitations exposed since although she was highly tried on one occasion. Well beaten on nursery debut last time; help provided by inside draw off 2lb lower mark.

Easy to back last time (had been gelded off a break) he's better judged on his earlier performances which contained promise allied to some quirks. Blinkers now appear for the first-time for his handicap debut; not ideally drawn though.

Took a small step forward last time over C&D to show his first form for a yard not known for their juvenile runners. Mark doesn't look particularly lenient but going handicapping ought to bring about some further progress.

Produced a career-best last time out on her nursery debut over 6f off a 3lb lower mark at Haydock (appeared suited by track/trip). Drop back to 5f and course with a very different topography not sure to suit; has awkward wide draw.

Left John Quinn; now makes stable/handicap debut for his new yard on the back of being beaten in two 6f sellers on his last two starts. 3lb out of the handicap, he would need to make above average progress to feature in this.

Betting

Forecast

Sermon (10/11), Shammah (11/4), Dream Kart (9/2), Dark Optimist (12/1), Zulu Zander (14/1), Lexi The One (16/1), Bezzas Lad (16/1), Newsical (20/1), Bob's Oss (66/1)

Verdict

The leading nursery trainer in the country so far is Mark Johnston who saddles Dream Kart in this but despite being a consistent performer she looks to have tough task off topweight despite having a decent draw. Shammah was well beaten on her nursery debut but has the saving grace of the inside draw here which may well induce a better performance. On form both Lexi The One and Bezzas Lad would have a chance but both have far from ideal draws and this may be best left to SERMON. He was slightly unlucky last time when second in a finish of noses and necks over C&D having covered more ground than the winner; a repeat on handicap debut would see him open his account.
