Improving with each run and scored at Newcastle (7f. AW) in June, when clear. Initial mark looks very fair and it would be no surprise to see him follow-up on this nursery debut.
Improving colt who has yet to take a close hand at the business end of a race, but may now be able to do that as he enters nurseries.
Last of four runners on his nursery debut at Newmarket recently, and has been going backwards since a promising debut.
Was showing some signs of improvement in his first three starts over 6f-7f, but took a backward step at Haydock last time. Initial mark looks stiff based on what we have seen so far.
Has raced exclusively at Chester in five starts, and has failed to impress in the last two of those in nurseries. Others preferred.
Won a Redcar seller in June, after which he was gelded. Initial mark looked tough enough for his nursery debut at Catterick last month, and so it proved. Drops 4lb, but remains up against it.
Showed a bit of promise on debut, but has not kicked on from that, including when beaten 10L on nursery debut at Leicester last time. Drops 4lb, but hard to fancy.
