Hurdles winner in the spring and registered a first turf Flat success when victorious by a neck in a 1m6f handicap at Musselburgh (good) last time out. Races off a 4lb higher mark on this occasion.
11 race maiden finished a well held sixth behind True Romance in a 1m6f handicap at Musselburgh (good) last time out. Blinkers tried for the first time.
Showed good form when finishing ½L second in a 1m6f handicap at Redcar (good-to-firm) last month. Raised 2lb for that effort and is interesting dropping back in trip.
Finished a well beaten ninth in a handicap over an extended 1m at Hamilton (good) last time out. Stamina to prove stepping up in trip.
Struggled on his last two Flat starts but fared better when 10L second in a handicap hurdle at Cartmel (2m1f, soft) last month. Interesting to see how he fares.
12 race maiden finished well beaten over hurdles on his two most recent starts. Market support would be notable on debut for this yard.
Ran well to finish 1L fourth in a handicap over an extended 1m at Hamilton (good) last month on her most recent Flat start. Placed over hurdles since and is one for the shortlist stepping up in distance.
Registered a fifth victory on turf when winning by a neck in a good-to-soft ground contest over C&D last time out. Raised 1lb for that victory and is likely to play a leading role.
Performed well in finishing ½L third behind Metronomic in a good-to-soft ground C&D handicap last time out. Disappointed prior to that but a repeat of her latest effort should see her run well from out of the handicap.
37 race maiden has finished well beaten in nine starts this campaign. Likely to find a few too good racing from out of the handicap.
Placed over hurdles in the spring but disappointed since including in a first time visor (absent here) over C&D on good-to-firm going last month. Races from out of the handicap in this contest.
Decent effort in finishing 3L fourth in a 1m4f handicap at Epsom (good-to-firm) last time out. Purchased for £10,000 subsequently and is an interesting contender on debut for this yard.
Five race maiden recorded a career best effort when 3½L fifth in a 1m2f handicap at Beverley (good-to-firm) just over a fortnight ago. Cheekpieces tried for the first time and is likely to appreciate this step up in trip.
Eight race madien was beaten 19L when finishing last of seven on debut for this yard at Hamilton (1m1f, good) last month. Probably best watched from out of the weights on first attempt at this distance.
